Exclamation Grand Country Music Hall

Branson Country USA - June 2, 2017

This week we welcome, from Country Music Recording Star, Moe Bandy!

Country music legend Moe Bandy has come a long way from his bull riding days in Texas. Not to mention his years as a sheet metal worker by day and playing Honky Tonks at night in and around his hometown of San Antonio, Texas.

The Texas singer with twin fiddles and steel guitar in the band kept Texas-style Honky Tonk music alive, but it wasn't easy. In 1972 Moe met record producer Ray Baker on a hunting trip and convinced him to listen to some demo tapes he had made. Baker agreed to produce Moe if he was willing to pay for recording session. Moe agreed and out of that session came Moe's first hit song "I Just Started Hatin' Cheatin' Songs Today". GRC Records picked up the song and released it nationally where it became a top 20 hit and that was just the beginning. Moe followed up with "It Was Always So Easy (To Find An Unhappy Woman)" and his first #1 hit "Bandy The Rodeo Clown". His songs never strayed far from the traditionally Honky Tonk fare. Loving, cheating, drinking and patriotic songs formed the core of his music.

Moe continues to perform to packed houses all over the world. More than anything else Moe loves to perform for his countless fans. Be sure to check out Moe's website www.MoeBandy.com because he just might be coming to a town near you!

This week a double-header as we also welcome, The Duttons!

The Duttons are international touring and recording artists who perform bluegrass to classical music and everything in between. Their show features a variety of instruments, including violin, guitar, bass, viola, banjo, mandolin, keyboard, harmonica, and drums, among others. The Duttons have garnered awards and recognition in national fiddling contests, classical violin competitions, and as studio musicians.

In addition to their instrumental virtuosity, the Duttons are accomplished singers and dancers and have been recognized as superb vocal talents. Behind the scenes, the Duttons collaborate to create unique production ideas for their crowd-pleasing show, which is produced by the family, including choreography, musical arrangement, technical support, and marketing.

Dean and Sheila Dutton were not professional musicians and they certainly weren't planning on raising their children as such, but when they realized that music was beginning to define who they were as a family, they embraced it wholeheartedly. Since that decision to pursue a career in music was made in 1991, the Duttons as a whole have not looked back and have gone on to enjoy a successful touring career and music business. Today, they own their own theater in Branson, Missouri, where they perform over 300 shows a year. They also own the hotel, restaurant, and gift shop associated with the theater, and another theater in Mesa, Arizona, where they perform from December through April.

While the Duttons' musical talent is immediately obvious, what sets them apart from most shows is their ability to connect with their audiences. People are fascinated by the all-in-the-family performers whose love for each other and for what they share is definitely unique. "I, for one, have never witnessed anything like this instant rapport between performers and ticket buyers - and I've been attending concerts for almost six decades," said critic Mike Kerverlas of the Sumter, S.C. Item. "In short, the Duttons are showmanship personified."
