The greatest show in Branson
July 23, 2010 - Pam Rodgers
I just went to the Haygoods show, and I claim it to be the best show on the Branson strip. I have seen this family of performers perform live together every time I have been in Branson since 2000. There are eight siblings total, seven boys and one girl. They can all sing, dance and play a lot of different instruments. From guitars, bass, pianos to fiddles, harps and saxophones, this is one talented family.
Tim is the oldest and he plays main fiddle and acoustic guitar. Patrick is next on the piano and he used to play fiddle but not so much anymore. Dominic is next and he is awesome. He's got a great voice and plays the fiddle and saxophone. Then comes Shawn, who wasn't performing tonight. We found out he was on vacation. Then comes Michael who also has a great voice (they all can sing but he and Dom are my favorites). Mike plays the guitar and the fiddle. Next is Matthew who plays bass guitar (he was another that used to play fiddle but not anymore). Then comes the only girl, Catherine who is very talented. She plays the fiddle, saxophone, the harp and percussion. I have also seen her play a solo on the piano but not in the most current show. The baby of the family is Aaron (hardly a baby at 17) and I have seen him grow up to be just as good a performer as his brothers. I first saw him when he was 7. He plays fiddle and saxophone.
The show has a little bit for everyone. They sing a variety of music from every decade. They also are tap dancers, and it is fun to see them working hard doing great things with their feet. One of my favorite parts is when they sing acapella. It’s great to hear the awesome harmony they can create. It is great entertainment. I highly recommend anyone who comes to Branson to check out this show. They own their own theater (the Americana) and the family has been performing in Branson for 18 years. They are a lot of fun!

From left, it goes Matthew, Dominic, Aaron, you can kind of see Catherine over Patrick's head as he sits at the piano with Tim standing on the piano and Michael on the far right (he's the one with the guitar). Did I mention I had a front row seat?
