The Liverpool Legends From Mexico City Carnegie Hall To Branson

The Liverpool Legends Mexico tour ends after playing to crowds like 17,000 in Mexico City. From Mexico City they played at Carnegie Hall from the same stage the original Beatles played in 1964. That concert must have been a very moving experience. Having played this year at the Rose Bowl Parade for the third time then a stop at Busch Stadium in St. Louis they now are performing in Branson Missouri at the Caravelle Theater.

botw_lb_072890_6.gif

Wow, I was just thinking about the original Beatles when the world held it’s breath when they walked on stage to perform on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. I remember that show and I remember my mixed reaction to the type of entertainment they provided. At the time I really had not made my mind up if I liked the Beatles sound or not. I guess it justs takes time to learn to like the English Accent and the beat of their music.

For those of us that were teen agers at that time I’m sure seeing the Liverpool Legends impersonate the Beatles will really bring back memories.  Branson is really fortunate to have them  playing at the Caravelle theater this season. After all the cool places they have performed they are really ready to give the Branson fans a very exciting concert at low Branson Missouri show prices.

Louis Harrison was the sister of Beatle George Harrison and travels with the Liverpool Legends as spoke person and MC. Marty Scott plays George Harrison and Kevin Mantegna as Ringo Star and Bob Beahon as Paul McCartney with Bob Dobro playing the keyboard.

Branson is really the birth place of the Liverpool Legends as they formed up there and they are really happy to be returning to Branson for their eleventh season. They say they really call Branson home and several have bought homes in town and they are proud to call Branson Missouri home.

I can’t emphasize enough that when you are in Branson you should take in as many of these remembered type shows like the Liverpool Legends, The Lettermen, Marty Robbins, George Strait, George Jones, Buck Trent, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Conway Twitty, Jerry Presley and the Legends in Concert. Even the Osmonds still play here from time to time and you know that these shows may be discontinued at any time.

The Liverpool Legends play at the Caravelle Theater Tues, thru Sat. at 8PM. They can be reached at 417-334-5100

The Duttons Family Show in Branson…

The Duttons

This Family is known as Branson’s most versatile music group. The Variety is astounding! Throughout the show, each Dutton plays at least six different instruments and each song features something unique.

Mom gets on the Bass and Dad gets the guitar and all the kids just jump in where able and the whole family just makes beautiful music together. It is truly a pleasure to see such a talented family playing here in Branson. They perform all kinds of music from Gospel, Jazz, Rock ‘n roll, bluegrass and classical. There is singing and dancing with Amy and Abigail on the fiddle and Josh on the harmonica and they all join in harmony. To put a family like the Duttons together takes a huge sacrifice in personal desires and professions along with countless hours and years of learning to play not just one instrument but multi instruments. As the grandchildren come along they have to be considered and they need to be educated and trained if they are to fall in the families footsteps. The DuttonsIn Branson their is probably the biggest selection of Family musical groups anywhere in the world and the Dutton show is one you just don’t want to miss. They are located at The Dutton Theater 3454 W State Highway 76 Branson, MO 65616 and by the way don’t forget they have the Dutton Inn and Deli so you can work up a package deal there.

The Oak Ridge Boys

The Oak Ridge Boys at Their New Theater in Branson…

Oak Ridge Boys

The Oak Ridge Boys are probably the most famous 4 part harmony group in the USA at this time but to think back they have been in business from the early forties. During the Second World Way the group was know as the Oak Ridge Quartet and they were on the Grand Ole Opry regularly. By the 60’s they have had over 30 different members. They were doing mostly Gospel in the early years. In 72-73 Richard Sterban (Bass) and Joe Bonsall (tenor) had joined William Lee Golden (baritone) and lead singer Duane Allen.

They came out with hits like Elvira, Bobbie Sue, Dream on, Thank God For Kids, American Made, I Guess It Never Hurts To Hurt Sometimes, Fancy Free, Gonna Take A Lot Of River and many more.

In 1975 they appeared with Roy Clark who asked them to do more Country songs. So in the late 70’s and 80’s they came out with more upbeat and uplifting music and avoided the Cheating and Drinking songs. They either appeared with or opened for many shows and artists such as Paul Simon, George Jones, Brenda Lee, Johnny Cash, Roy Rogers, Billy Cyrus, Bill Monroe, Ray Charles and others.

The Oaks also did charitable and civic cause work such as fund raisers for the Boy Scouts of America and The National Committee for Prevention of Child Abuse and Feed The Children and others. In 1987 Steve Sanders replaced William as Bass and he shortly after resigned and William came back as a member and Bass vocalist.

If you have been driving around Branson you may have seen the beautiful theater near the intersection of highway 248 and 65. Mr. Gene Bicknell the present owner of the Mansion Theater bought the theater that was built for Glen Campbell in 1994 and with the help of General Manager Larry Wilhite they have completely remodeled it by replacing all the carpet, lighting and sound and now have a great 2150 seat theater called the Oak Ridge Boys Theater. This new theater like most in town is used for other shows and Country Tonight and Dalena Ditto also use this new venue. Oak Ridge BoysThe Oaks have done 160 day country wide tours but are glad to now have a new home to return to and Branson is glad to have their nationally acclaimed talent. The theater is located at 462 State Highway 248 Branson, MO 65616(417) 239-1333

The Dixie Stampede

The Dixie Stampede is a Great Equestrian/Dinner Show…

Dixie Stampede

The Dixie Stampede show is probably one of the best shows in Branson if your interested in Equestrian events. This show comes complete with a 4 course dinner served right in your arena seat but before that pardner there is other good stuff to see and do. Dolly Parton had 3 of these Dixie Stampedes one in Myrtle Beach SC. one in Pigeon Forge Tn.and the one we think is the newest, biggest and the best right here in Branson, Mo.

This production is a Joint Venture with Dolly and the Herschend family that owns and operates Silver Dollar City , Ride the Ducks, The Branson Bell Showboat, The Wilderness, White Water, Roaring Rocks, Plus camping and Rv Parks. This show has been here in town for several years and comes to you from one of the most attractive venues possible. It starts out with it’s huge 35,000 sq. ft. arena surrounded by a beautiful brick facade holding all the outdoor horse and livestock stalls and indoor office and back stage areas. Horses I would recommend you buy your tickets ahead of time and possibly get a package deal with the other shows and attractions they have. Then I would come about one and a half hours early. If you are able you can walk around the entire horse and livestock boarding stalls and look at all the beautiful animals. Then 50 before show time they have an area they call the Carriage Room Opening Act where you will see some pre show entertainment before being ushered into the huge arena. I don’t remember if you select your seat before or if you just take what they give you when you are ushered in. But in aether case you will probably get seats right on the 50 yard line OH that is for football but here it is the center of the arena which is a long oval. There is actually not a bad seat in the house as there is two levels of seating and each row is elevated way above the row in front. cows When everyone is seated you will be served popcorn and beverages in a souvenir mug. I won’t tell you about the show so it won’t ruin it for you but it is one high energy wild west ride threw time. You will hear great music and animal acts as well as all the horseback riding events. You will possibly see horses, pigs, ostrich, longhorn cattle, camel & buffalo. You will see feats of balance and daring as well of plenty of great stuff for the kids and also several patriotic events. The meal is served in 4 courses so you can eat a little at a time as you watch the show and you will see plenty of both. Grub and Show that is.

The Baldknobbers

The Baldknobbers was the First Show in Branson…

Baldknobbers

The Baldknobbers were the first show in Branson. The Ozark Jamboree, Branson’s first country music and comedy show, started a tradition that goes back to 1959 when brothers Bill, Jim, Lyle and Bob Mabe began entertaining visitors in downtown Branson on the Taneycomo lakefront. Advertising consisted of Katie and Joyce (wives of Bill and Jim) donning country dresses and walking around Branson’s small downtown area with signs announcing the show.

Named after an Ozarks vigilante group from the 1880s and performing with washtub bass, banjo and dobro, plus an old washboard and the jawbone of a mule for rhythm, The show was an immediate hit with fishermen and tourists to the Branson lakes area.

Outgrowing the original location, the Mabes moved their show into an old skating rink, converting it into Branson’s first live entertainment theatre. Expanding again, The Baldknobbers Jamboree Theatre was built on 76 Country Boulevard in 1968. Now the oldest show in Branson seats 1,500, Branson’s fame as America’s live entertainment capital is worldwide, and This show started it all!

Baldknobbers Wow The above History came from their web site and a beautiful and quality site it is. Just to think back when the Ozark Jubilee moved from Springfield to the basement of the Branson City Hall where they had to put the stage and all the chairs away after every show at night so the City Hall could function during the day. Then they moved into the old remodeled skating rink and then into the new theater they are now in. They were not the first show on the strip as the Presleys started on the strip while the Ozark Jubilee were still in downtown (OLD) Branson. This family has just lived through a couple of hard years as some of the show stars have passed away and being the show is so family oriented it was tough to fill in those missing spots that were so firmly set. The family will always see those spots with the original members in them even though others have stepped up to fill the vacancies.The Mabe family is really some kind of Branson Live Show Pioneers and you can’t help but love everyone of them.

Baldknobbers They really have it all with the theater, restaurant, motor inn and gift shop you can really “Get ur dun”They are located at 2835 West 76 country Blvd. Branson, Missouri417-334-4528
