Editors’ Choice Award Best Variety Show 2009 - Grand Jubilee

October 22, 2009, 8:00 PM

Seven BransonCritic staff members and spouses attended the Grand Jubilee show on Thursday night for the presentation of the 2009 Best Variety Show, Editors’ Choice Award.  Chad Ray, Director of Operations, made the presentation to Mike Patrick, Producer/Director/Emcee/Entertainer, backed by the entire cast on stage (Music Director, Danny Yancey, was not available).  Chad gave a brief background of BransonCritic.com and then read some quotes from Branson Critic editors, including:

“Grand Jubilee overflows with strong vocal performances backed by expert musicianship. Hilarious comedy is appropriately spaced throughout the first half.  The Grandpa Dandinio magic bit is the funniest comedy routine this writer has ever seen, anywhere, by anyone.”

GRAND JUBILEE 2008
at the Grand Country Music Hall, Hwy 76

June 26, 2008

The Grand Jubilee Show has been a favorite since my wife and I started coming to Branson five years ago.  Start with the dynamic Grand Band; top musicians in their field who can produce music of any genre you care to hear, and they all do it extremely well.  For the Grand Jubilee show, the music is country, rock and gospel.  Award winning Danny Yancey is the music director and plays the pedal steel, banjo, and rhythm guitar.  Danny is endorsed by the Gibson Banjo Company and in this show you can see why.  Matt Hanshaw plays lead guitar with a vengeance and he does some flattop picking in the bluegrass segment that the audience just can’t watch fast enough.  Robbie Blackwood lives behind his drums, he plays for 3 shows per day at the Grand Country Music Hall, and then again on the live Branson Country USA radio show on Friday nights.  He is fun to watch as his solid driving beat is precise, moving, and colorful with the occasional twirling drumsticks, and yet he doesn’t dominate the other instruments or vocals no matter how soft the songs get.  I’ve watched Larry Allred closely on electric and upright bass.  His light-hearted personality would make you think he doesn’t take his musicianship seriously.  Wrong.  Larry is very serious about his bass playing.  He is as much into the tempo of the music as the drummer and if you watch closely, you can see him coordinate with the others by eye contact and body gestures.  I really like to see and hear him walk all over that bass on several numbers - almost like he were playing lead guitar.  Larry is also very serious about his singing; he provides backup vocals during this show but is a fine solo performer as well.  The wild man on the fiddle just can’t be beat.  Wayne Massengale is a master on the fiddle and a veteran entertainer.  He gets the crowd into his music every time he is featured.  Not only is Wayne expert on the fiddle for bluegrass and country numbers, he also provides the smooth violin sound for more classical songs - you know, the sweet background sound in a sad, serious song that conjures up a tear in the eye and a lump in the throat.  Wayne uses that fiddle to elicit the desired emotion from the audience.  Wayne also plays rhythm guitar, mandolin, conga drums, tambourine, and sings backup vocals.  The piano/keyboard sounds come from Michael W. Davis.  Michael does all the vocal arrangements for the Grand Jubilee show.  When you watch him play the piano you immediately see, as well as hear, the musical talent.  He is all over that keyboard like he was born with it and he is versatile in singing various backup vocal parts.  He is also terrific as the lead vocalist on, “Born to be Wild” and, “Crocodile Rock.”  And there is more instrumental talent on display when comedian Jim Dandy is featured playing nearly every instrument on the stage.  A favorite is when he plays twin fiddles with Wayne Massengale.  Host Mike Patrick is also an accomplished piano player and vocalist; he performs the Jerry Lee Lewis hit, “Great Balls of Fire.”  His piano playing makes him one of my favorites because he is so much fun to watch as well as listen to.  He is a fine singer who sings what I consider my kind of music.  I also enjoy his talents on the Sunday Gospel Jubilee and Ozark Mountain Jubilee shows at Grand Country Music Hall.
