The Branson Tri-Lakes News published a whole article about Shoji Tabuchi and his successful tour dates that helped spread the word about Branson and all the great shows and performers that fill the town with world-class entertainment.
Shoji has been a popular entertainer in Branson for 27 years and he continues to draw crowds of people to this theater for nightly performances. I went to see his show a few weeks ago and spoke briefly with him during intermission. Our conversation was short, but it’s clear that he cares about all his fans and his passion for what he does shines both on and off the stage.
His show incorporates his wife, Dorothy and daughter, Christina who both play a major role in making the Shoji Tabuchi Show the fantastic show that it is. Dorothy is responsible for all the choreography and Christina’s vocals have audience members absolutely raving. Unfortunately, the night I went to see Shoji, Christina wasn’t performing. She is expecting a baby girl in a few weeks and can’t perform every single night. But I plan on going back just to catch her onstage!
This year the family completely reworked the show to include all new costumes, new lights and special effects and a new Japanese segment featuring Taiko drums, the huge Odaiko drum and traditional Japanese clothing. That was probably my favorite part of the show and it was great to see him share a little bit of his own culture to the stage.
If you haven’t had the chance to see the Shoji Tabuchi Show in Branson, you’re missing out. Experience it for yourself and come see why this talented fiddler continues to bring thousands of visitors to the Ozarks.
