Description: The Branson's first show that started in 1959. Today, the family legacy...
The Branson's first show that started in 1959. Today, the family legacy continues to wow audiences by delivering everything from traditional country to today’s #1 hits and lots of side-splitting comedy. Now, the 2nd & 3rd generations of the Mabe family carry on the family tradition of performing an all new show each year. Both longtime Baldknobbers’ fans and new fans alike appreciate the Baldknobbers’ family traditions that have made this show popular from generation to generation. In 2011, the Baldknobbers original costumes, instruments and artifacts were added to the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.

Went to this show expecting good music, but was very dissapointed. Seemed the performers "screamed" in place of singing. They worried more about their costume changes instead of the songs they were trying to perform Lots of talent in Branson, but this show doesnt have any

Saw the baldknobbers last spring (2014) then watched the reality show. They have updated the show, costumes were good, music good, great band, comedy funny. Don't not go cause you think the name is corny, there is a reason they are called the baldknobbers and it doesn't mean Hicksville show.

We go to Branson frequently but had never been interested in the Baldknobbers until we saw the show on TV. It really made us want to see them in real life. Is it a bit corny? Yes, of course it is. That's part of it's charm. The opening pre-show act was incredibly funny! The singers are good, especially Megan. The... More

Talent was below average. Comedians killed the show. Performers kids running in and out of back stage, up and down aisles...very annoying.

A wonderful chance to connect with Brandons History. A traditional country music show. The music was great. The comedy was a little dry but it was funny. I would reccomend the show to anyone. Mike Ito was great on violin. Patty Mabe is a class act all the way around. The Baldknobbers show is definitely worth a night.

Seating was very cramped, and we are average size. If you are above average size, skip this theater. You won't enjoy this just average show if your uncomfortable. They need to upgrade their seating. I will not visit this show again.

The show was stale and outdated. Talent was far below other shows in Branson. The wife and I left at intermission.
