Went to a show 4/11/14. We were very disappointed. We have went to there shows, many, many times. Sometimes twice a year. First of all Jarrett Dougherty is not there. That is HUGE for us. We were not aware of this. They have lost there Bass singer and moved around. They have also moved to more POP songs. In the pass they always did a good job on moving in newer country (Big & Rich, Tim McGraw, etc.) this was gone. The lady singers did mostly pop, other than one Miranda Lambert tune. But the mix this night was on the Sax and keyboards. They has almost not guitar in the mix. Anyway, it is more of a Pop type show. Very disappointed. We will not see show again.

Not only does this group have musical talent but they have one of the funniest comedians ever. It has been a long time since I have had to concentrate on breathing simply because I was laughing so hard. Great time.

It is said that all good things must come to an end, but when more good things open up it is wonderful. Pierce Arrow has lost Jared Doherty as their comedian, but they have an interesting new comedian, who brings out the best in the audience. Some of the funniest comments were what he brought out from the members of the audience as he talked with them on stage. There are new singers who hold great potential, too. The band is wonderful.

We've now been to the Pierce Arrow show four different times. We wanted to take our grandchildren because of the comedian. How disappointed we were to see (without advance notice) that he had retired. The replacement is okay, but he's not anywhere near as funny and entertaining as the previous comedian. The vocalists are just "okay," too ...more turn-over. The singers are considerably "cheesey" and non-convincing of their proposed faith. They speak of the importance of religion, but something about them conveys a certain hypocrisy that sours the experience. One of them looks like he just got off the drug wagon. The lead singer and "host" of the group has a very psuedo-smile that belies what he's saying. The female singers are hardly more than "okay," also. They would never make it anywhere but Branson. And it's interesting that the females have been new with every show we've attended. The show does not, however, reflect the heavy-duty country sounds that are prevalent in several Branson shows, which is fine with us. We're not twangy, scoup every note, country enthusiasts. The show is probably actually one of the better shows in Branson, but it's a long way from what it used to be ... and that's primarily because of the loss of the comedian. Will we go again ... no way.
