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 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
