Glad to hear the Duttons are ok. But their bus is not. It is total as they were heading out to an event to meet with fans. Here’s the note they sent me.
Dear Lee, We hope all is well with everyone! We have had an exciting few weeks. First – we are sad to announce the death of our tour bus. While we were en route to New Jersey to meet up with a bunch of Dutton Fans for Dutton Cruise 2019, our tour bus decided to learn a new trick and rolled over…literally. What a miracle it was that all 23 of us walked away from that accident with only bumps and bruises and an overwhelming sense of gratitude. Our bus is destroyed, and we had a couple of violins crushed in the wreak, but worst human injury was a broken toe and a broken nose on Amy. What a blessing we all feel to be alive and well – AND we made it on Dutton Cruise 2019 and had an amazing week every with many of you!
Now the funny part about that is, this email is to tell you about our upcoming tour dates – and we don’t even have a replacement bus yet! But don’t worry, where there is a Dutton, there is a way! (Or, rather…where there is a Uhaul and a bunch of mini-vans, there is a way…) Coming up right away we have two shows in UTAH – so get ready UTAH – BRANSON is coming to you!!

Got the opportunity to visit Shrek the Musical last night, at the Amazing Welk resort.
Compliments: If you don’t have your summer plans yet, this amazing play is running for 3 Months only. And is worth every penny. Bransonisfun.com got to attend the opening night, for local eyes only. And I was deeply impressed. Shrek is played with great precision, and easy. The Donkey is played with tons of talent. And Lord Farquad steals the show! You’ll see how he navigates his amazing costumer.
Caveates: It is two and half hours long, with a great finaly and intermission of about fifteen minutes. It might be tough to keep the kiddos attention that long. The theater is spacious and the seats very comfortable. There are about 30-50 people in the cast, and at times, it is hard to take in.
I just love Branson. And I hate to hear, stories of a business closing down. But the Branson mill, after several years, of struggle will be shutting it’s doors. I haven’t gotten word yet of exactly, what day it will be closing. But all the vendors have marked down a ton of their inventory, and there will be more to come. The 90 plus vendors, are looking for somewhere to hand their hats. Rattle Snake Eddie has set up shop on the strip. Which could be good for him. Rattle Snake carries an assortment of leather products, hand made. Guitar straps, and tons of other stuff!
From what I understand the owners, are going to repurpose the area, to keep the little mall with the paddlewheel thriving. But they haven’t announced yet, what it will be . So stay tuned, and when we know, you will know! Bransonisfun.com
It’s official. Today at the Grand Palace the Big announcement is being made. The T.i.f.f.(Tax incremental Financing). When I drove by today, they were setting up tables, and tents, and getting ready for their big announcement. If you get time, go by and lend a hand to support your local community.
