Branson's Famous Baldknobbers


The “Famous Baldknobbers” attraction in Branson has entertained music and comedy fans in for more than 50 years! Long before Branson became known for its variety of shows, excellent shopping and dining, museums, and first-class golf, the Mabe Family assembled on the banks of Lake Taneycomo in downtown and played for visiting fishermen. Known as the first family of performers to create a Branson show, they abandoned their lakefront venue in the early 60’s to build a theater in Branson’s new area for entertainment, Highway 76 - fondly known to all who live and visit here as ‘The Strip.’ Generations of Mabes have always kept audiences in stitches with their comedy antics, currently the kingdom of Droopy Drawers, Jr., and tapping their feet to popular classic and new country tunes. A strong line-up of musicians and vocalists at the “Baldknobbers” has always been led by family members; currently, Patty, Tim, Denton, Brent, and Brandon carry the Mabe torch that was lit by their parents and grandparents back in 1959.

The Mabes work hard to bring you a fabulous show each season, introducing new songs and always making sure you get a lot of good laughs! You can’t visit Branson without seeing the long-running shows that helped pioneer this live entertainment capital, and that includes the “Branson's Famous Baldknobbers!” Among attractions in Branson, there are few like the Baldknobbers.

Top Notch Show

This show is one of the BEST in town! It is so upbeat and exciting to see! There is lots of variety in the songs, the performers outdo themselves in each of their songs, especially the patriotic montage! And the band is amazing! These guys are SO talented! The comedian is very funny too! You are kept laughing and come away with a happy feeling! When you visit Branson, this is a MUST SEE SHOW!!
