BRANSON, Mo. – The Hughes Family has enough life and talent to light up Branson even in January and February when most shows are on winter break.
On a cold weekend in January, the Hughes Family was only one of two shows that performed on a Saturday night. That all changes in March and April as Branson shows reopen.
Maybe the Hughes Family performs 12 months a year because they have 44 (by my count) mouths to feed with at least one more on the way.
This is a wonderful family show with what is billed as the largest family of entertainers in the world. It is anchored by five brothers – Marty, Jason, Adam, Ryan and Andy. These singers show a remarkable range in their vocals and they have an unmistakable quality – they love to sing and they love to perform together on stage.
Marty and wife Cindy have 13 kids and one on the way. Nineteen-year-old daughter Kristina is captivating on the fiddle and Dallin, 17, is quite a contortionist when it come to dance moves.
Jason and wife Mara have eight (I think that’s right) children. All of the Hughes children are wildly talented but Jacson’s 17-year-old son Aaron is a born showman and that is hard to miss.
Adam and wife Vikki have one son, Liam. Ryan and wife Carina have seven kids and Adam and wife Becky are raising four beautiful youngsters.
The five brothers alone would be a great show but the kids add a special dimension. There are shows that will push a kid on stage who is not ready or is just not talented enough but that is not the case with the Hughes children (except for the really little ones, of course).
