We have been coming to Branson for many years and can not believe we missed coming to this amazing show. What a talented family. The instruments played and the vocals were some of the best we’ve seen. We will definitely come back again and will bring the rest of our family.

Way to go Haywoods’!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed the show! Good family entertainment! The harp playing was beautiful especially when four of them started playing it.

The show was professional and polished—a little too polished. This family is definitely talented, and the music was fun and diverse. The light show was impressive, but I got the feeling that a lot of it was purposely distracting from the performers, who lacked energy—probably because they were lip syncing and not playing their instruments half the time.

The end of the show employed a blatant tactic to force a standing ovation, by paying tribute to US veterans with a few seconds of the National Anthem. It’s not necessary to stand for the anthem, but most people don’t know that, so people started standing up. Far be it from me to remain sitting when a Midwest crowd stands to show their patriotism. I didn’t want to be beaten up in the parking lot after being taken for a commie. So I gave a standing ovation along with the rest of the crowd. At least it got people moving out of the building faster.

We were entertained, and it wasn’t a waste of two hours, but we’ll probably pick something else next time.

Sir, we don't lip sync anything anything and all instruments are played live as
they have been for 26 years and 7,500 shows for 6.5 million people worldwide.
This is the first review in the 26 year history of the show that has ever said anything like this.
We have a very good soundman who knows how to make everything smooth and sounding great.
We give everything we have and 100% energy. Every. Single. Time.
It appears your perception of the show was very affected by your disapproval of Midwest crowds standing for the National Anthem. People want to stand, they choose to stand, and they want us to honor our Veterans
at the end of every show. They specifically request this. If you choose to label folks Patriotism as a "tactic to force a standing ovation" so be it. There was a standing ovation the song before the ending Sir, but you forgot to mention that in your review. Even if in jest, talking about getting beat up in a parking lot, and insulting Midwest folks saying they would "take you for a commie" is highly inappropriate.

One of the best family shows I have ever seen. Great for all ages, a variety of music. Impressive light show. Non stop action. Very talented family, true respect for our country, God and veterans.

My husband and I took our 2 kids aged 11 and 13 to see The Haygoods. We all absolutely loved it! They are an amazingly talented family with tons of energy and enthusiasm. After the show they signed autographs, took pictures, and spent a good amount of time asking us where we were from, what plans we had for vacation and gave a few recommendations for what else we could do while visiting. Their show is entertaining for all ages. I’m excited to listen to their cds I purchased!
