The Rankin Brothers was one of our favorite shows in Branson. These two brothers are very talented in singing many different styles of music, such as Elvis, Sonny & Cher, Righteous Brothers, Willie Nelson and many other artists.

These guys are very talented. They are very entertaining and you could tell they were truly enjoying themselves. You can't believe the talent and ability to imitate voices. We sure enjoyed the show. Also met their parents who were in the audience

The Rankin Brothers were a great show. It was recommended to us by friends. We really enjoyed it. They perform 50's & 60's music and sound like the original singers-great variety of artists!

We have seen this show several times we have never been disappointed. They sing and preform the songs like the original singer of the song. I hear the song on the radio and the person I think of is the Rankin Brothers. They are the most polite people and willing to talk to you after the show.

We all really loved this show! They chose some great songs. Great variety! They were great at all the impersonations. The music and the singers were so close to the original version. First half was their regular show and second half Christmas. Loved the Josh Groban and Andy Williams tributes! Willie Nelson was great too! The brothers did a version... More

They weren't bad, just not as wonderful as I had heard. I heard some singing off-key, which really bothers me. The impressions were not spot-on like others we had seen. In fact, I wasn't sure if he was trying to do an impression or just singing the song. I will say, they all had nice voices and the harmonies were... More

I loved the music. They played classic hits from Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison, Beatles, John Denver, Sonny and Cher, Neil Diamond and a bunch of others. They kept a constant motion through the different hits and were really spot on with their performance. People were dancing in the crowd and it was a real fun feeling. The atmosphere was... More

The Rankin Brothers, Mark and Matt, have another great Christmas Show this year with many new songs. Lori Kelly definitely adds to the Christmas spirit with her songs. The entire show is filled with such great talent by the vocalists and their band members. The first half of the show is their traditional songs of the 50's, 60's, 70's and... More
