If you’ve ever been to a live music performance, you know what it’s like to hear outstanding vocalists. It is an experience like no other, and there is no better place to experience live music than in Branson.
Branson has been serving up fantastic live music since the late 1950s, and that tradition continues today. Here are four great reasons to take in a Branson live music performance.
1. Authentic Music & Singers
Many current performers have been singing for over 20 years and have made family entertainment their career. Branson is full of amazing entertainers who love what they do. Some popular genres you can find include country, bluegrass, gospel, and tribute music.
Our own Mark McCauley, New South Gospel’s bass singer, has been on our stage for more than two decades! Other performers in Branson have entertained folks for most of their lives, and their kids are now passing on these traditions. Further, our award-winning emcee, Mike Patrick, celebrates 20 years with Grand Country in 2023. He’s been producing and performing in live music shows in Branson at various venues for most of his career.
2. Fun for All Ages
In a time where it can be difficult to find family-friendly fun, Branson shows still deliver. Most shows are specifically created for the family experience, with songs and jokes that are clean and wholesome.
Branson’s mix of gospel and country shows, as well as popular throwbacks to the ‘50s and ‘60s, delight older generations as well. They will enjoy sharing some of their favorite older songs with children and grandchildren alike.
3. Audience Interaction
Many live music shows offer audience interaction, allowing audience members to become part of the action. This isn’t something that you get at a movie theater or play. By allowing the audience to participate, the show becomes an experience with fond memories that last a lifetime. Kids will giggle, laugh, and smile when seeing themselves or family members up on stage joining in on the fun.
4. Something Extra
When you watch a live music show in Branson, especially a variety show with a bit of everything, you aren’t just getting music. Sure, there are excellent renditions of popular gospel songs, twangy country music, and patriotic hits. But there is much more. Most live music performances are complemented by comedy acts to get you laughing to go along with great storylines to keep you engaged.
At Grand Country, our Amazing Pets show offers incredible cats, dogs, and birds performing spectacular tricks for the audience. Kids will love seeing the animals jumping through hoops and following complicated commands as they show off their skills. Our Comedy Jamboree is also an improv comedy show that gets the audience involved, and it delivers 70 smiles per hour.
