#1 Hits Of The 60's
It’s no surprise that Branson Mom, Branson Dad, and Branson Son are fans of the #1 Hits of the 60’s, but this year I can tell you the cast has raised the bar on the energy they had on stage. Of course the music is all the same – you really can’t change the past for what songs were hits in the 60’s now can you. But that’s one restriction that this years cast have overcome by their enthusiasm on stage.
I took over 700 pictures during the show and most of them were blurred because they were moving around the stage so quickly, shaking their hips doing the Twist, or the Monkey, the Swim, the Batman, the Locomotion, the Peppermint Twist, or the Jerk. They did slow down just enough for me to get a few good pictures for you to enjoy near the bottom of the page.
Of course a favorite place for people to go in the 60’s was the Drive-in and they bring you back to that time on stage. Snack Time commercials from yesteryear, couples arriving at the Drive-in with one partner and leaving with another, and – as one cast member put it – we are all beautiful people and children of the cosmos man…….
We are treated to Rock and Roll from the 60’s like
“Born To Be Wild”, “Johnny
Angel”, “I Feel Good”. Motown
songs like “Heard It Thru The Grape Vine”, “I Got Sunshine”, “Ain’t
No Mountain High Enough”, and “My Guy”.
Of course what 60’s show would be complete without songs from the
Beatles like “I Want To Hold You Hand”, “Hard Days Night”, “Can’t
Buy Me Love”, and “Hey Jude” or songs from the Beach Boys “Surfin’
Safari”, “Good Vibrations”, “Surfin’ USA”, “Two Girls For Every
Boy”, “Help Me Rhonda”, “Little Surfer Girl”, “Little Old Lady From
Pasadena”, and Ha Ha Ha Ha “Wipe Out”.
The 60’s was an
era of good times and bad. This
show brings you back to that time and honors the Vietnam veterans for their
service as well as honoring the memory of Martin Luther King as well as John and
Bobby Kennedy. Now I haven’t even
touched on most of the songs you’ll hear cause they sing over 100 during the
If you enjoy 60’s
