What a great show! Instrumentalists and voices were top notch! Must see while in Branson. The pianist played "How Great Thou Art", and it was absolutely breathtaking.

Fantastic show. Very talented performers and band. Comedy was good but a little slow at times. Great Christian attitude and wonderful for the whole family. A definite go see.

The pre-show comedian was hilarious. He kept us laughing the whole time. The music and energy of the show were non-stop. Loved the tribute to the military and to gospel music. Will definitely be going back.

The Baldnobbers have been around for a long time & they are still entertaining. During intermission they come down & sign autographs for whomever wants one & seem genuinely happy to do it.

Excellent performances by the band and the vocalists. Good clean comedy courtesy of Hargis Marcel and Droopy Drawers. Thank You Mabe Family for continuing to present a family friendly show.

The Baldknobbers show was my bucket list Branson show, and it didn't disappoint. By far the best show I have seen in Branson. The piano player was the best I have ever seen. The mix of comedy and country/gospel was spot on. Will definitely return...More

Stage haze is all they use and is safe for anyone.
I saw it last year, and I believe it was close to 2 hours. We were highly disappointed in the show, I would recommend seeing another.
