The Mesquite Resort Association and Free Spirit Vacations and Events are pleased to bring a little bit of Branson to Mesquite, NV. Branson, Missouri is the Live Music Capital of the World and its popularity began during the early 1990's and has continued to grow as a destination that offers a great variety of entertainment and talent.
Branson is Folk
THE FOLK COLLECTION could just as well be named the "Singing the Classic Songs of the '60s Folk Era" group. Tony Unger, Ed Labowitz and Mike Sirota, grew up in the 1960's, when they fell in love with the story songs and 3-part harmonies of that acoustic era. They have been influenced by the well-known groups of the era, but also have their own blend, sound - and humor. They grew up loving folk music, and have struck a "chord" with audiences of all ages, who enjoy listening to the words and harmonies. You will leave singing, toe-tapping, and most importantly, smiling.
Branson is Variety
HARLEY WORTHIT is Branson’s premier comedian. He moved to Lake of the Ozarks in 1980 to play drums on Lee Mace’s Ozark Opry. This exposed him to the Ozark’s family style of comedy. In 1985, he was playing guitar on a show, and one night, the comedian and his wife had a serious fight and he left town. The show had ten more weeks before the end of the season and Harley was asked to come up with a character and fill the comedy shoes. The rest is history. He has worked with The Presley’s, Pam Tillis, Doug Kershaw, Pierce Arrow, Splinter Middleton, Clay Cooper and Delene Andre. Currently, Harley is performing at the Grand Country Music Hall in the Comedy Jamboree Show and in the Down Home Country Show.
RE:VOICED – Formerly with the band “The Cat’s Pajamas” at the Andy Williams Theater, these young men have evolved into a spectacular, high-energy group called Re:Voiced. Hearing the term, “a cappella,” most people’s minds travel back in time to the eras of that classic barbershop sound. Guys standing on a sidewalk singing in consonant four-part harmony, wearing stylish straw boater hats- you know the ones. Re:Voiced, however, is NOT your classic barbershop group. Encompassing five talented, charismatic men, re:Voiced is the vocal quintet that will keep your “ears on their toes” and will have audiences enthralled while experiencing their band without instruments sound. They’re more than just five guys with microphones; they embody the full sound of a band using only their five voices. Not relying solely on smooth vocals, re:Voiced brings professional showmanship, audience interaction and sleek sophistication to the stage to create a perfect mix of impactful moments that will leave crowds not just impressed, but also inspired.
Branson is 50’s and 60’s Rock’n Roll
