The Rankin Brothers – Classic Music Revue

Welk Resorts Branson is thrilled to announce the opening of an exciting new show for the 2008 season; “The Rankin Brothers, Classic Music Revue”!

You’ve more than likely heard it said that everything old is new again. The Rankin Brothers Classic Music Revue is a fresh approach to timeless musical classics. “This is a culmination of a dream come true”, stated Matt Rankin. Brought up in Texas, where they honed their musical skills, performing in Branson has long been their goal. “Several offers came through, but we felt that Joe Sullivan and the Welk Resorts Organization were the perfect match for us and our families”, agreed Mark Rankin. And, after a recent performance at a local community luncheon, the Branson community seems to agree. Tammy Slentz, Sales Manager at the Welk Resort Branson explains, “After the Rankin”s appeared, our phones started ringing off the wall! The people absolutely love them!”

This multi-media show speaks to all groups and all generations. Based on a belief that classic music is timeless, the Rankin Brothers project a love and respect for the music they play. Along with their considerable vocal and musical talents, the Rankin Brothers have a stage presence that audiences adore. Maria Elena Holly, widow of the late, great Buddy Holly commented, “Our Visitors from England, as well as our local friends were absolutely wowed in grand style by the music and showmanship of the Rankin’s. They did a tremendous job with Buddy’s music.”

The show consists of musical numbers from the 50’s to the 90’s and for a few hours, time will stand still as they take the audience on a memorable journey with hits from THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS, SIMON & GARFUNKEL, BUDDY HOLLY, THE EVERLY BROTHERS, NEIL DIAMOND, CONWAY TWITTY, GEORGE STRAIT, ELVIS PRESLEY, and many others. Rounding out the cast will be the Rankin Brothers Band, female singers and dancers and a comedian.
