"Must see!"
October 2019
Wasn't sure what to expect, but had heard it was a must see. It didn't disappoint. Arrived 45 minutes early to enjoy the pre-show. Everyone who performed is loaded with talent. Great mix of humor, country music, Southern rock, gospel music and a salute to America's veterans. Highly recommend!

"AMAZING!!!"
July 2018
I went to Branson with my God Momma who asked me to get the tickets. I had little knowledge of their show, but man, they can perform! They put on a show like none other and I have talked with other performers who partner and give a discount off their show with a receipt...I can hardly wait to come back next year!!!

"Missed it 3 times!"
June 2018
Drove past the theater 3 times & never saw the sign. Went to Sonic to get drinks & she told us where they were. I had been to Baldknobbers in the Baldknobber theater & the show was much better there. Still good clean jokes, humor & songs. Loved it!

"Updated but not better"

We went to the show because we enjoyed it years ago. The music is new country with just a few gospel songs. The comedy was excellent. We have never seen so many people going out during the show and using their phone during the performance. To me this is a sign of boredom. If you're interested in older country music this is not the one.

"Show was Average, worth seeing Once."
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed August 29, 2020 NEW
The show was a mix of old and current country songs along with about 4 or 5 gospel songs and the comedy skits throughout to mix it up. In our opinion only, the comedy was funny. The songs we knew most of them but if someone is older they may not recognize the new country songs. The only gospel song I knew was Amazing Grace. They guitar player I guess wanted to be a headliner as it seemed he had a solo on every song. The talent of the singers in excellent and they are all very good. But for us the show wasn't bad but its not the best show in Branson either. We feel its OK to see once but have no intention of seeing it again. Reza on the other hand who is in the same theather is awesome and I higher recommend that show.

We were pleasantly surprised at the new Baldknobbers Show. We had attended the old Baldknobbers Show on HWY 76 several times in the past. We were getting disappointed in the show and stopped attending. We heard that the show was more energetic with updated songs and material. We were pleasantly surprised. Brandon and Megan have done a very good job at presenting talented performers with new material and music that entertained us all night long. There were times when the music was louder than the singing. This can be corrected by the soundman.

When I was a little girl, we took a summer vacation every year to Branson. My dad is a huge live music fan and we would alternate years between the Baldknobbers and Presley’s for one of our nights each year. The last time I saw them was 16 years ago on my honeymoon. This last week we were able to get my dad away for a short weekend and I told him to pick any show he’d like to see. He chose the Baldknobbers and we were all so disappointed. Maybe we’re old school, but we hated the new show. I’m 40 so I knew all of the songs they sang, but my dad is 70 and didn’t know a single one. The comedy was disappointing as well. We are coming back this fall with a big group and I am so thankful that we saw it now and saved us the embarrassment of bringing the big group there.
