Our show takes place at the Branson Star Theater. This is an amazing (and historic) building. This stage was once the long time home of stars like Willie Nelson, Mel Tillis, Loretta Lynn, and Yakov Smirnov. Every time we take the stage, it's crazy to think of the talented folks who have performed in that very same spot. What I love most, though, is how available the stage is. Our show is featured here so we have complete free run of the theater any time we want. Literally, if I have an idea at 4 AM, I can go into the theater, turn on the lights, and work on that idea. We're really not used to having a spot where our show is always set up and ready- but we are loving it!
The audiences so far have been amazing. When we perform in a new spot, we never really know which part of the show the audience will respond best to (and it really is different depending on the geographical area of the country). In Branson, though, the people are great. This is a show town and people seem to really get into that.
Here's something else that's crazy. Lots of performers know each other, given that our paths tend to cross quite often. We love to meet new folks who have a passion for what they do on stage. Here in Branson, we've made quite a few new friends- singers, dancers, and a lot of very talented musicians (this has always been a country music town, so the musicians here are amazing). Here's one guy who's really cool, though:
Here's another great guy. This is Chris McDaniel:
And... here's one more very talented individual:
So... if you're anywhere near Branson Missouri, you really need to come see all the amazing things in this town- and let us know you're coming so we can say hi!
