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.

My kid's enjoyed the show. The performance was great and had a good variety of music. Seats were comfortable.

we felt that the best part of the show was the music, and that wasn't the best we had ever heard. It seems to me that it would have been better to have more musical parts and a lot less comedy. We were not looking for a comedy show when we got tickets for this theater . The Christmas show... More

The show is stuck in a time warp, it just hasn't evolved over the past 35 years. Way too much comedy for the show. The Mabe's seem to have familyissues that come to surface on stage. Singing was OK. The MC was the son who needs to recognize he shouldn't do it all, his voice is twang sounding, his cousin... More

First, I must complement the singers. All of them are talented, and Megan is especially entertaining. The wardrobe choices were excellent and very flattering to all of the women. Now for the bad (and it was REALLY bad): The comedy bits were appalingly weak. They were corny, stupid and an insult to both the audience and the truly gifted singers... More

I really liked this show. It was very family friendly content wise and entertaining in an 'ozark' kind of way. I love comedy so especially like that part of it. Singers were excellent. Enjoyed the Christmas show very much. On the other side I need to mention that some of the ladies clothing was very... um...distracting? I'm a woman and... More

The Baldknobbers is always an enjoyable. Hargis and Droopy-drawers are very funny, but this time didn't seem as funny as in the past. Nathan and Mike and the rest of the band were very good. The Christmas portion of the show was more enjoyable than the regular portion of the show

This group was the original in Branson and I love that it's multigenerational in talent. Some of their costumes were recently included in the smithsonian which was amazing to me. I've been going to see them for over 30 years as I grew up but hadn't been to the area in over 10 years so decided to see them this... More

We attended the show on Thursday, Nivember. 5, 2015. This was the Christmas show and also honored our veterans. Loved the comedy with Droopy Drawers Jr. and Hargus Marrcel. Mike Ito was outstanding! I even bought one of his CDs. "Mama" Mabe was very good and looks good too! You would never believe she she has grown children! Daughter Breanna... More
