Branson Country USA - November 16, 2018

This week we welcome , from Hamners Unbelievable Variety Show , Jeff Brandt!

Jeff Brandt is an integral part of the Hamners' Unbelievable Variety Show and shares the musical portions of the show with Tamra Tinoco (and others). Jeff is another World class talent whom we are honored to feature in our production.

Jeff is originally from Iowa where he got his start early forming his own band Jeff Brandt and Galaxy. Jeff and Galaxy toured the midwest region extensively in his early career and this past year the group was inducted into the Iowa Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. From Iowa, Jeff made his way to Branson in 1990 where he performed at several venues in the area. He was quickly recognized by Mr. Las Vegas, Wayne Newton while in Branson and spent 13 years as a featured performer in Wayne's show. He earned the moniker 'The Voice' during his tenure in Las Vegas and that still applies today!

Jeff has had two appearances on the Tonight Show, a featured spot on the TV show, 'Las Vegas', two feature film appearances in the movies "Vegas Vacation" and "Smoking Aces" and has also performed at the White House in Washington, DC.

Jeff has been honored with awards and accolades. Most recently as the 2017 Impressionist of the Year by the Branson Show Awards, and The 2018 Terry Awards Male Vocalist of the Year. Jeff is married to wife Gina and together, when not wowing the crowds in Branson, they operate the Brandt Family Farm, a wedding and event venue in Branson and continue to perform with their band Jeff Brandt and Galaxy celebrating 40 years together as a band in 2019!

Amazing Entertainment Awaits in this Great Branson Show! - Hamners' Unbelievable Variety. At "Hamners' Unbelievable Variety" Branson show, you'll be treated to a sensational array of Branson entertainment! Led by master magicians, Dave and Denise Hamner, the show is packed full of performing artists; the variety includes sensational singing, phenomenal dancing, stunning illusions, and a singing impressionist too spot-on to be believed! The Hamner's deliver magic that's at once awe-inspiring, dazzling, and touching. Their talent has been recognized by the magic industry with the Magical Masters Award from their peers in Las Vegas, Siegfried & Roy, who presented them with the Bronze Lion Head Award; they also appeared on NBC's World's Greatest Magic. The birds in their act are an audience favorite; it's an astonishing sight to see gorgeous cockatoos and macaws appear out of nowhere and fly over and around the audience. Their original feats of magic have been seen in Las Vegas and Disneyland, but it's Branson they love best!

In addition to dazzling magic, you'll be treated to outstanding vocals, courtesy of Tamra Tinoco, who once scored the runner-up position in the Miss Missouri pageant. She's a seasoned singer who's appeared on the Grand Ole Opry as a guest of the legendary Porter Wagoner, and worked with artists like John Davidson, Jim Stafford, Vince Gill, Ferlin Husky, and The Osmonds. What Branson show is complete without fantastic dancing? Choreographers, AJ Heard and Ken Brown give "Hamners' Unbelievable Variety" its happy feet!

And we also welcome Country Music writer and recording star, Becky Hobbs!
Whiskey-voiced Becky Hobbs is one-of-a-kind. She is a gifted songwriter, as well as a captivating entertainer. On stage, she plays some rockin' keys, yet she can rope you in like an Oklahoma cowgirl with her from-the-heart ballads.

That same year, she was honored as the U.K.'s Country Music Round-Up's "Most Promising International Act."

Also, in 2011, Becky's CD, "Nanyehi-Beloved Woman of the Cherokee" was released. It contains 17 songs written for a musical, based on the life of her 5th-great grandmother, Nancy Ward (1738-1822).
