"I have been to three of their Branson performances"
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.

"An evening we will not soon forget."
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.

"Don't miss this show."
One of the best shows in branson and the harmonies were unbelievable! Didn't hear a wrong note the whole show. Excellent musicians! Can't wait to go back and see again. Bought the cd and have listened over and over. Food was excellent and more than enough for any appetite. Good humored and moral people here! Don't miss this show.

"Branson's best kept secret."
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.

I preface this by saying i'm not a country music fan but this was western swing music which i have learned to enjoy. This was probably the best collection of musicians that i have ever seen and this is a tremendous show they provide.

A fine show, with very pleasant harmonies on (mostly) familiar sonGs brinGinG back some Great memories. Also fills in some history many of us didn't know (e.G., that roy rogers not only sang with backing by the sons of the pioneers, but was actually an early member of that group before he ever took the name and had the career we know as roy rogers). Note, however, that this was the only time on our trip when our branson shows voucher was _not_ recognized at the show box office. Don't know whether the problem was at your end or theirs, and fortunately they were able to seat us for the show (albeit in the back row, rather than the much better seats we had at all other events), but very important that such glitches be investigated and eliminated, please.

Excellent musicians & sound if you like cowboy music. We are from colorado springs, home of the flying w wranglers & are used to seeing a thousand in the audience. The sons only had 50 on a friday night - a real shame. They are very good & worth your time. The meal was more than we could eat.

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..
