“Let the drums roll out, Let the trumpets call, while the people shout, “Strike Up The Band!” The “All Hands On Deck! Show” has been awarded the 2017 Branson Terry Music Award for “Morning Show Of The Year.”
“The All Hands On Deck! Show” is an homage to Bob Hope, and an American 1942 Roadshow & Radio Broadcast reproduction featuring the songs, dances, laughs, and favorite radio commercials that America has loved for 70 years! The production was nominated for: Morning Show of the Year, Band of the Year, and Drummer of the Year.
“We love sharing our musical message of patriotism with folks all across the U.S.A, and they really seem to enjoy the fact that we transport them back to a time our country had that can-do spirit of working together,” said creator/producer Jody Madaras in a recent intervieweing a part of the Branson community. The people here are just the best, and we are deeply honored by receiving the award for outstanding “Morning Show of the Year.”
“The ALL HANDS ON DECK! Show” features Broadway veteran and Pemberville, Ohio native Jody Madaras (creator, producer, Ted Crosley), Valerie Hill (Betty Blake), Emily Gardenhire (Daisy Maxwell), and Taylor Hopkins (John Handley), and the rich sounds of the LIVE 9-piece Hollywood Victory Caravan Orchestra (featuring Branson’s Drummer of the Year nominee Rob Wilson), classic commercials, tight harmonies, impromptu skits, and 42 of the greatest American songs ever written, as well as a full-circle patriotic salute celebrating the American way of life; reminding us of a time when our country was fully united.
