Jim Stafford

Last night we went to see Jim Stafford at the Jim Stafford Theater.  This is his 20th year here in Branson at his own theater. He is known for his guitar playing and earlier comedic songs such as “Cow Patty” and “Spiders and Snakes”a-js1.jpg

We had pretty good seats and the large theater was about 80% full.  The parking lot is on the side of a hill and they have golf cart shuttle service up the hill.

All of the photos were taken without flash and set on “theater”.  That setting doesn’t lend itself to very good zoom shots.

Jim is now 65 years old and is breaking in his kids as part of the show.  His 12-year old daughter Gigi demonstrated her proficiency with both the piano and the harp.


Son, Seth, shown above playing the piano with his sister and below with his father, is only 16-years old.


He was fantastic on the piano, but his work on the fiddle or violin was unbelievable.


Basically this is a variety show with a pair of very talented dancers.


And a girl, (forgive me for not catching her name) that did a wonderful job with a Hank Williams song.


She also did pretty well with a comedy skit with someone from the audience.


We enjoyed the show and appreciate the fact that he is trying to break some new stuff into the act now that he has reached the ripe old age of 65.   I’m sure that he is tired of doing some of the same stuff for all of these 20 years.
