This pair, with a talented blond woman, do very convincing tribute imitations to a huge variety of musical stars, from Sinatra, to Crosby, Rick Nelson, Elvis, Sonny and Cher, and many others. Matt does a great Buddy Holly, recognized by Holly's estate as one of, if not the best, in the country, as well as one of the Everly Brothers,... More

Hi Badger Bob and thanks for a great review. Yes, they do a wide variety of "stars" and do each one spot on. Each season they add more and more "stars" in their show, along with new comedy skits, keeping the show updated and entertaining. Matt's tribute to Buddy Holly is a one-of-a-kind tribute. He has it all.......voice, looks and... More

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.
