The Duttons 2009

Went to the Dutton show last night and all I can say is WOW!!!  It's easy to see why they did so well in the America's Got Talent show - reaching the top 10 level.  That stage was overflowing with talent, from singing to dancing to mastery of musical instruments, this family has it all.  The music you'll hear ranges from rock and roll to classical and everything in-between.  I'll be honest with you, last night was our second time in two weeks we went to see the show.  My first set of pictures was too dark so I went back for a better set.  Of course we loved every minute of it and will have to go back again later this year to see the Christmas show.  

The Duttons open the show with "Play Me Some Mountain Music", "Rocky Top", and "I've Been Everywhere Man".  After being introduced to the entire Dutton Family, They keep the energy high as we hear "Cotton Eye Joe" and the "Orange Blossom Special".  In the next segment, audience member Larry is escorted on stage and 12 year old Jessica sang "Teddy Bear" to him.  The music continues with "One Fine Day", "Bye Bye Love" and a song by Dean, "Sixteen Tons".  He sings while some Dutton children trudge by behind him in prisoner costumes - very cute!  After listening to "Rock Around The Clock", we hear Judith singing a beautiful rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow".  The Wizard of Oz theme continues with a few songs by the Dutton kids - Rachael (9) as Dorothy singing "Follow The Yellow Brick Road", Benjamin (7) as the Scarecrow singing "If I Only Had A Brain", Natalia (8) as the Tin Man singing "If I Only Had  Heart", and Timothy (6) as the Cowardly Lion singing a resounding rendition of "If I Were King Of The Forest".  

Amy comes on stage to play the tiniest violin I have ever seen.  She later returns to play a solo of the Russian tune "Czardas".  It's remarkable how she can make that violin sing.  Tim and his daughter Rachael sing a cute duet, "Then I Will Go To Sleep".  We then get to hear a little Gospel, including "Keep Praying Till The Answer Comes", before the first half comes to a close.  The second half opens with a crowd favorite "Devil Went Down To Georgia" and Tim shows off a little playing all the instruments on stage.  Jonathon brings his family on stage for some Samoan songs while his wife Belle and daughter Jessica dance and their son Nathanael plays the guitar to assist his father.  Tim and Judith sing the beautiful song "When You Say Nothing At All", while Sheila and Dean (Mom and Pop Dutton), dance on stage.  The energy picks back up again with the Dutton boys singing "La Bamba", "Wipe Out", and "Johnny B Good". After a heart felt tribute to the armed forces, the Duttons finish the show strong with their most requested song "Boil Them Cabbage Down".  They formed a line and played each others violins - Incredible!!!

This show had it ALL!!!  Something for the adults, Something to keep the kids interested, Beautiful singing, World Class instrument playing, and High Energy.  What more could you ask for??
