Their perfect blend of country music, gospel music and comedy will keep you at the edge of your seat and roaring with laughter all night long. The family has been recognized on a national platform as well. In 2011, the Mabe brothers original costumes, instruments and artifacts were added to the permanent collection of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. The family has also appeared in multiple television programs, most recently starring in their own reality television series, "Branson Famous".

Stage haze is all they use and is safe for anyone.
I saw it last year, and I believe it was close to 2 hours. We were highly disappointed in the show, I would recommend seeing another.
