If i could have but one wish, i would have the sons of the pioneers sing their wonderful songs forever. They are a true classic - past, present, and future. I have been to three of their branson performances and find them to represent authentic americana. Each one of the sons of the pioneers is a jewel and play an integral part of the harmony of the group as well as being accomplished soloists.

Being a musician myself, i thought the mix could have been better. The fiddle and bass were not loud enough and the tenor who played the fiddle vocal mic should be louder. Mixing from the stage is a hard thing to do. Not wanting to be critical that night, i will write that here. The music and vocals were great. I just hope they have more business so they can keep playing there. We would go and see them again..

We drove all day to get here from texas and this show and dinner were worth the drive by itself. The food was great and so was the service. The sons of the the pioneers put on a top notch show singing many of their cowboy classics we have heard over the years. After the show we attended the shepherd of the hills presentation. An evening we will not soon forget.

I think they are branson's best kept secret. It is so refreshing to hear pure, clean harmony and to actually understand the words. Western/cowboy music speaks to the soul of part of our national history. If anyone is interested in great musicians with mellow, awesome harmony, please see the sons of the pioneers. Roy rogers, one of the original sons in 1934, would be very happy. It is also refreshing to leave a theater without our ears hurting and ringing from so much plugged in and loud music.
