Long before Branson was known as the family friendly entertainment destination a group came together to start performing at events in the area. That group took the name of the vigilante group from past generations and eventually became the Baldknobbers. The Mabe family started the group in the late 1950’s, and the show is still going on with the original family at the helm.
While other shows in the area may have a similar format, most being variety shows, the Baldknobbers set that successful formula that all of the other show follow. A night at the Baldknobbers includes gospel music, current country and pop songs but also characters that the act has had for three generations.
In between the main acts you will get small comedy skits with Droopy Drawers Jr and Hargus, two stereotypical dolts from the Ozarks. But don’t expect them just to be a side act, they will make their appearances during the main performances as well and interact with the musicians as they are singing. The family works well together as an act, and the talent exudes throughout the whole show.
The Mabe family brings to the stage serious talent and you will enjoy the show from the audience involvement, comedy, patriotic salutes and music. There is a reason the show has lasted for almost 60 years and will for years to come. Be sure to stay after to talk to the Mabe family, and you will that with talent comes a down to earth family that truly enjoys what they do.
