For those who love Branson and enjoy variety, The Homer Lee & Friends Variety Show is a must-attend event. On August 26, Hamner's Variety Theater will be host to the hottest ticket in town.
Terry Wayne Sanders has been making
Branson audiences laugh from more than 35 years. His characters, Homer Lee, Grandma Beulah, Joan of the Ozarks, Fred Smoot are among the most loved in Branson history.
Several days a week, Mr. Sanders can be found performing at Silver Dollar City, Big Cedar Lodge and Shepherd of the Hills. On his days "off" (maybe working at only one of the three), he acts as spokesman for the MDA, Branson's Tour Guide and The Vacation Channel while mixing in personal appearances at Baker Creek Seed Company, private parties, corporate functions and TV programs.
In other words, Terry likes to stay busy. Therefore, co-producing two entirely different shows (Homer Lee & Friends Variety Show & Homer Lee & Friends Christmas Homecoming) was a logical choice.
Mr. Sanders explains, "The variety show is all about (pause) well, variety. We have a very eclectic group of well-known performers lined up that actually fit together quite well. The flow of the show is very smooth and well thought out by myself and my producer Dan Eslinger."
Eclectic indeed. Here are some of the names on the lineup, Barry Williams, Clay Cooper, Ezra Noell, Mario Rosales, Mickey Gilley, SDC's Homestead Pickers, Spoken 4 Quartet along with appearances by Bob Hubbard from the Foggy River Boys, Cliff Braschler, and others.
"We want people to have a good time, look back and say, I was there the night that... (happened)." adds Mr. Eslinger. This truly will be a once-in-a-lifetime event. To order your Homer Lee & Friends tickets online click here.
