"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!

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!

What a great time! Our family saw the show a couple of weeks ago and everyone from 65 down to teenagers and the youngest (6 years-old) loved it! From the incredibly talented performers, to the gorgeous costumes, to the fantastic music, you will not be disappointed! Those of us that have even been to the Grand Old Opry said the Baldknobbers beat them “hands-down”. For a great evening full of hospitality, a down-home family atmosphere, and a ton of old and new favorites.......don’t miss the Baldknobbers!

Review is for the theater and assigning wrong seats. We bought 4 tickets at, in person, for the Reza show on 7-5-2020@8pm. Reza show was terrific. We showed up at the theater with the voucher to get our tickets and seat assignments. We were assigned row 21 seats 1-4. Usher used the tickets to direct us to our seats. Minutes later another usher came by to see our tickets and said everything was fine. Then another man came who appeared to be in management and again asked to see our tickets. He asked us to stand, leave our seats, and walk to the rear of the theater. He said the tickets were for next Thursday and blamed for the error. My email confirmation and the ticket voucher from all said July 5, 2020 @8pm. My seat ticket from the theater said the same. The manager took my voucher and seat ticket, left, and returned with new seat tickets for row 23 in the back corner of the theater. He escorted us to our new seats saying gets it wrong a lot. We will visit tomorrow to advise them. We were not at all happy with how we were treated and the theater will not own up to its mistake. The four of us were quite embarrassed by our treatment at the hands of the theater staff and have vowed not to return to this theater. Again, our beef is with the theater and not with the Reza show, which was excellent.

I always enjoy seeing this show because it is so upbeat. The band is incredible and hearing Brandon Mabe, his lovely wife and the rest of the entertainers sing is a good feeling experience. I especially enjoy the gospel part of the show. Just an FYI; on Wednesdays they have an all gospel show that you will definitely enjoy.

We loved the preshow entertainer! He was a Cajun comedian and had us rolling in stitches of laughter! Fabulous musicians and comedian. Hargus is hilarious and we loved his facial expressions. Loved the new female singer and glad the male singer was back! Brandon and Meagan did a fabulous job of singing! Great show!
