"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!

"The Baldknobbers Jamboree Show"
June 2018
We have been to the Baldknobbers Jamboree Show twice (once during thanksgiving break and once during the summer). In my opinion, the Christmas show was much better. When we went this summer, they had just moved to a new theater a month prior and I think they were still trying to figure out the stage lighting and sound. They still did an outstanding job even my 7yr old daughter enjoyed it.

We saw the Baldknobbers show on a trip to Branson, Mo. with our family of older children. I was expecting to grit my teeth thru the show, as I don’t really listen to country music, but I was in for a huge surprise. The show was so family oriented and the musicians and singers were so talented I really enjoyed myself and so did my whole family. The comedy was the type I remember watching back in the 70’s and 80’s when I was a kid. There were no off color jokes or any with sexual connotations that would have proved embarrassing. The MC and the comedians were funny without being vulgar which is rarely heard of or seen today. I also loved how they sang some gospel songs in addition to the popular country and contemporary songs and gave credit to God for their talent. Of course they had to practice and work hard to become some so talented, but they gave recognition to the source gifts, and I thought that it was lovely that they did so. Near the end of the show, they honored all of the veterans in the audience and active service women and men which was so well deserved and well received by all. Also we learned the family connections of all of the artists and I thought that it was wonderful that the family still had such an active participation in the show after several generations. Like many, families it isn’t always easy to live and work to with family members on a daily and in this case nightly basis, but they have made it work and I hope they have another generation that is willing to keep this delightful show alive!

What a fun and entertaining show. A lot of western music and gospel music with a couple of comedians that were really funny. Great for the entire family. We will definitely come back and see this show again. One of our favorites in Branson.

We attended the Baldknobbers Gospel Show off a return ticket from another show ($15 tickets). We wanted to see a show that was exclusively gospel and we weren't disappointed. Tenor Dan Keeton was the best singer we saw over the 9 days we were in Branson. An inspirational and entertaining show!

Reviewed June 23, 2019 NEW
This show is wonderful to see, it is put on a by a wonderfu family that has been in branson a long time, they do singing and dancing and intertwined in some comedy skits as well, the show is about 2 hours long and they do some great singing. The band that backs them up is great as well, All the band members are excellent musicians and can really go to the town on the instrument of there choice, proven meaning times by doing solo's during the songs and or doing a song themselves, We did enjoy sitting and watch them do their show. Great Job!!
