A new venue, a revitalized cast and the return of the “classic lineup” has brought the Circle B show to the pinnacle of the cowboy shows in Branson.
The biggest change in the Circle B Cowboy show this year is the new venue. They’ve moved to Branson Central next to the Acrobats of China theatre. The venue is much more suited for the show, bigger, more open…and it leaves you with the feeling of being at an old fashioned barn dance when you’re listening to the Riders of the Circle B do their thing.
The “classic lineup” was there tonight as I define the classic lineup…Kemp, Michael and Christiana Horn, Earl Vaughan and Louis Darby. Each of them were on the mark as if they all had been playing together without a break. (Hopefully Louis will be around for a while.)
The musicianship remains as solid as ever and there’s something about Louis Darby in the mix that seems to elevate the performers.
A new addition to the show is the trick roping and tricks of Andy Rotz. Rotz is a Guinness Book of World Records record holder in trick roping and is a very pleasant and solid addition to the Circle B Show. It provides an element of depth to the show and the roping and shooting is a great way to provide a break in the music for the audience.
It’s worth the time. It’s worth the cost. It’s worth the smile you’ll have on your face from start to finish!
