I've heard several references to it this week, but have never heard of it before then. Sounds intriguing!

U Smell Smoke, so glad to hear you made it!  I actually thought of you as we were entering, and I heard one of the ushers tell another that if there were any seats left after 10:30, they would fill them with visitors that didn't have tickets. I loved it and can't wait for it to air. I think you are right about the dates, and it's on TBN Sat. night 8/7C time. I just googled it, and apparently it's also on Sun. nights, and you can watch current episodes online on the TBN site, so yay! It will be interesting to see it after edits.

Today was a great day to be at the city as they celebrated Law Enforcement Day.  If you were lucky, you had tickets to see Mike Huckabee filming his show at the Opera House. That was a very cool experience, and the entertainment was great with appearances by The Haygoods, Moe Bandy, Irish Tenor, Tony Orlando, Dino (carrot cake guy), the Presleys, and the new Governor of Missouri, Mike Parson.  The Governor was a real surprise that wasn't announced earlier. It took about 2 1/2 hrs. to film, and I loved watching it play out.  A very cool experience! Cell phones had to remain off and no photography, so I don't really have any photos.

After the show, we went over the Riverfront to see the K-9 demo. There was a short delay because...they were awaiting the arrival of Huckabee and the Herschends! They each spoke for a few minutes thanking all the law enforcement officers.  After the demo, there was an ice cream social that I believe was meant for law enforcement and families, but I think nearly everyone walking by had ice cream.  All in all, it was a very good day at the City today.

Here's your link - definitely not the easiest thing to find on their website.

Finally made it to the park today for my first visit of the year. Hot, muggy day that made shows even more attractive.  Time Traveler was a walk on when we rode it in the afternoon. Wife and daughter walked right around and rode it again.  Not really my kind of coaster.  I can say I rode it though. Didn't seem very crowded to me today. A lot of rides were walk ons.  Guess the heat kept some folks away.  As others have said, FM looked nice but still no music. Went to PK first as it is my favorite. No surprise, it didn't open on time. Was saddened to see how much they have stripped back the craft demonstrations.  Cedric mentioned this is their last year.  Said it wasn't their choice and wasn't happy about it. But, his show wasn't real crowded and several people left during it.  Be interesting to see what they will replace it with.  Guess we'll go back tomorrow and try again.  Mike Huckabee is taping his tv show there tomorrow at 11 in the Oprea House. Several locals gonna be performing on the show including the Haygoods and Presley's among others. Might have to check that out.

USmell Smoke, tickets are required to get into the Opera House.  Not sure if they're still available, but they are free minus a $1 processing fee.

Law Enforcement Day tomorrow at the City! Free admission for law enforcers. Anyone going to see the filming of the Mike Huckabee Show at the Opera House tomorrow? There are also K-9 demos at Riverfront.  Should be a good day!

I think that would be your best day (Sun. before).  Many people in town, especially families, leave on Sunday for the drive home.

We went late Friday afternoon and had no trouble finding a spot in the lot for tram stop 2. Echo Hollow was maybe 1/2 -- 2/3 full for Atlanta Rhythm Section -- much of the crowd left early (will be surprised if ARS is ever asked back).

ARS was not a good fit IMO.  Not much interaction with the crowd and just didn't seem to be into it.  Crowd was not responsive, as well.  More people around us were on phones or just sitting.



I was trying to remember if I ever heard the lead singer or any other band member of any other group at SDC use minor foul language off and on during a show. I noticed he stopped himself at one point when he said something about children in the audience. Probably some of the people who might have attended to see ARS were at the Marshall Tucker Concert at the Mansion.

I have attended many special concerts over the years at SDC. ARS was the least enjoyable of the ones I have attended.

Honestly the only reason we went Saturday morning was to get credit for attending Star Spangled Summer festival. Although we will be back in Branson more than once this summer, I'm not sure we will go back to SDC  until after the SPS festival is over.

Nope, Hubs and I talked about it, also.  Neither one of us remember any foul language from a band, either, or a band member whining about the cost of producing cd's with a production company, how they don't make much money on it, and the best way is to produce your own cd's.  Our least favorite of the concerts over the last couple years, and I've seen most of them. The whole thing was just off..

I'll correct that - The entire week is a frenzy!

Veterans Day weekend is a frenzy!

Terry Sanders posted a statement on FB written by Cedric Benoit to let everyone know that a meeting took place two weeks ago informing him that this would be their last year at the City.  While I don't usually stop and listen to a full set, I always enjoy the familiarity of walking by and hearing them play.  They will be missed.  I hope this doesn't mean Danny Eaken and the Pickers are next.
