THEY MADE A GOOD IMPRESSION!!
Apr 2015 • Couples
Hi, it's the travelin' agents from Consumers Travel World. This is a terrific show where two talented brothers do impressions of your favorite artists' hits from the fifties on up. Some of the impressions were great---the Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, and a perfect Buddy Holly. Others were not spot on, but everything was done tongue-in-cheek and so fast that it was like a great comedian doing a set...if you didn't like the last joke, here comes a different one. The female singer was a good singer, but not much of an impressionist. She also seemed to be having quite a bit of trouble with her earpiece at this performance. The back-up band was also excellent. Live music is the best. All in all, an energetic and very fun couple of hours!

Hi Sherry ! Since you live right across the state line from me, I know it is a fairly lengthy trip for you to Branson and Matt and Mark will be so glad to hear you say "I will go as much as I can." That means a lot to them to know their fans will drive miles and miles to see them perform. I know I make the trip as often as work will allow. You are soooo correct when you say it is like an "all new show." So many new "stars" and so many new songs and I love them all. When you mix all those new songs in with the favorites that fans ask them to keep in the show, you have a full nights entertainment. When you say there are lots of surprises in the show, you might say "There is one big surprise and two small surprises". I won't say anything else until more of their fans have a chance to see the surprises in their 2015 show for themselves except that the surprises are very entertaining. I, too, clap along with the audience but I try to refrain from singing along. All my life, I wanted to be a country singer but I can not carry a tune and can clear a theater in a few seconds; however, I do enjoy hearing the people sitting around me joining in on some of their favorite songs, Thanks for such a pleasant review and hope to meet you at one of their shows.

Hi Peggy and thanks for the review. I saw their 2015 show for the first time Friday night and it was awesome. They have put so many new "stars" and new songs in the show that it is like seeing their show for the first time; however, they did leave in some of the standards they do because they get many requests for "stars" like Buddy Holly, Elvis, Sonny and Cher and the Everly Brothers. I agree with you that they could do any "star" they decide to do, and do it very well. You can close your eyes and it will sound just like it did so many years ago, often times, even better. This early in the season I don't want to give away the names of some of the new "stars" so that those that have not seen the show, can enjoy the surprise as much as those of us that have been to the Branson Star Theater to see their 2015 show. And yes, it is great having them on the strip again and the Branson Star Theater is a beautiful theater. There is a surprise in the show that I am absolutely sure you are going to love but, again, will not spoil it for those of you who will soon be attended their show. Just be on the lookout for a new singer to the Branson scene, one that can really sing a country song like it should be sung. Oh, are you in for a surprise. I, like you, enjoy it when the boys change the lyrics to some popular songs and make those lyrics fit the Branson scene or the brothers joking with each other as only brothers can do. Hint, hint.....keep an eye out for "Poor Lonesome Mark" as Matt fills us in on some personal details that will keep you laughing. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review and hope to see you soon at one of their shows. Judy Lee

Best Show in Branson
Nov 2014 • Couples
I live in Branson and have seen almost all the shows (many of them several times). There are a number of great shows, SIX, Clay Cooper, Shoji, and others; but the best show in Branson is the Rankin Brothers! They combine outstanding musical talent with a selection of songs that remind everyone in the audience of some of their happiest memories. They perform songs across several genres and decades and their act also includes humor that will make anyone laugh and enjoy themselves.
We go see them several times a year and enjoy each time as much as the first time we went.
THEY ARE NOT TO BE MISSED ON A BRANSON VISIT!

Thank you so much for your kind review of February 5th. THE RANKIN BROTHERS ARE BACK ON BRANSON'S 76 STRIP (COUNTRY BLVD). The town of Branson is so excited that the Rankin Brothers Show is on the famous Country Blvd Strip. They are at the Branson Star Theater at 3750 W. Hwy 76, a long-standing theater that has housed many great entertainers and the Rankin Brothers fit right in with that list of great entertainers. Their schedule will be Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8pm. Their 2015 opening night will be April 1st at 8pm. This is going to be a banner year for the Rankin family. They have new "stars", new songs and new comedy skits planned for their audiences. It will be a big chore to beat last year's show as it was fantastic but, this season will do it. Don't make a trip to Branson without seeing this show, it will be the highlight of your trip. Hope to see you there. Judy Lee

A very talented pair of brothers
Dec 2014 • Couples
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, and several others. Mark, has the best vocal range, probably spanning more than two octaves. The female singer did Patty Paige and two others, and with a long black wig, was Cher with Mark as Sonny in a tribute that was "dead on".
Because it was the season ending show, it was video taped, and we bought a dvd, which they autographed. During that process, they asked us about our "Badger-wear" and what brought us to Branson, and when we explained an anniversary trip, they gave us a $20.00 gift certificate to "Shorty Smalls" restaurant. VERY nice people, and most talented. Our favorite "concert" performance in Branson.

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 mannerisms. If you closed your eyes, you would be sure it was Buddy Holly on the stage, It is a real crowd-pleaser. Mark's vocal range is absolutely amazing. As often as I see the show, I can hardly believe some of those notes that he hits. If you don't get a tingle when he hits, and holds, some of the notes, there is something wrong. As much as I enjoy all of the "stars" the guys do, I love their own voices. They are two very talented brothers. The Sonny and Cher skit with Lori Kelly that you mentioned is one of the crowd's favorites. You never know where Mark will go with the skit but it is always a fun trip. I am so glad that it was your "favorite concert performance in Branson". I often think how much a person would have to spend to hear just a few of the artists that are still performing and it would be an enormous amount. Yet Branson visitors and locals get to see all of them for one admission. I often have members of the audience tell me they enjoyed hearing Mark and Matt more than they did the original artists. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review and I hope to see you soon at one of their shows. Judy Lee
