How do they do it? Nobody knows. Somehow, The Johnson Strings artfully combine extreme musical talent, funny moments, stunning video, and family stories to create an evening of pure JOY!
The Johnson Strings’ 2018 show is chock full of fun surprises and unique musical twists. (Have you ever heard Stars and Stripes on the banjo? Or seen a comedic Scott Joplin rag that squeezes 6 people onto just two pianos?) This close-knit family is sure to tug on your heart strings with soaring musical renditions of favorite movie theme songs like Fiddler on the Roof and Magnificent 7 interspersed with hilarious thoughts and true family stories. If you like singing, you’ll love their a capella rendition of The Lord’s Prayer and the many other famous vocal numbers sprinkled throughout The Johnson Strings Show. How about some smokin’ hot trick fiddling? Let’s hear it for the fans of the Orange Blossom Special! Be enchanted. Get inspired. Join the family and enjoy a wonderful evening of music and laughter! The Johnson Strings: one family working together, living the dream, and capturing the hearts of those they meet.
Got a sweet tooth? Be sure to check the made-from-scratch cookies at The Johnson Strings show in Branson! Chef Karen, one of the performers in the show, makes amazing, triple-chocolate Missouri Mud Cookies, Chocolate Chip cookies with Toasted Almonds (an old favorite, elevated in a fresh, new way), and melt-in-your-mouth Amish Sugar Cookies! Stop in at their theater anytime between 6:30pm-9:30pm on show nights (Monday, Thursday, and Friday) to give those cookies a try!
Tip: If you buy 4 cookies, you get the 5th one FREE. (Who doesn’t love having an extra cookie for breakfast the next day?)

What people are saying about The Johnson Strings Show…
“FRESH, NEW HIGH QUALITY FAMILY MUSIC!
There's the Branson sound and then there's the Johnson sound! I put this off when hubby had been suggesting to go, thinking it was just another show. It's not. This family has raised the bar of ‘excellence’ to a new level! If you appreciate fine music, ‘GO!’ ” - Jim C
Superb talent, delightful entertainment! A must see in Branson! Something everyone will enjoy! Probably the best overall we've seen in Branson!” - Andy
Went with a friend, I normally wouldn't think to book a show with violins, cellos, a big bass and a grand piano. But I'll admit this was a superb show! An extremely talented family, no doubt about it. I'll definitely go back to see this show.” - Rich G
“A show you can trust!
True talent! Such an outstanding conservative-Christian family working together in harmony to bring refreshing song arrangements in many styles. This is real music and it will energize and inspire you! I've been there three times and can't wait to go again! Our 3 year old grandson was on the edge of his seat for the full 2 hours! I'm glad Branson has a show I can fully recommend for any age! The cookies are homemade and very delicious! If you have children or grandchildren taking music lessons this will inspire them to practice and show them how much fun playing music can be! I've been to many Branson shows and never in my life have I been more impressed. It's the best music show I've ever experienced!” - Tamara M
