Have tween's or teen's?  Then the Haygoods show in Branson is a must see.

The show, which features seven brothers and one sister, is just as exciting as a roller coaster ride at a theme park.

From the arrival of Michael from the ceiling to the ending chord, the show has a little bit of something for everyone.  The show features songs currently on the charts and goes all the way  back to gospel standards. 

The beautiful harmonies of the family, which is celebrating 20 years in show business this year, were honed during camping trips and other family gatherings, and are like melted butter on sweet corn.  

Dominic Haygood, who leads the audience through the journey of beautiful melodies and rocking numbers, is delightful as he interacts with the audience and his siblings.

The show starts out with a few little rocking numbers....but what turned it around for me was their beautiful rendition of the Black Eyed Peas' "I've Got A Feeling."  They took a huge it and made it their own.  Five of the siblings play stringed instruments in their rendition and it was one of those WOW moments during the show.

Another came when the brothers started "Mountain Dancing," their version of tap, to AC/DC's "Thunderstruck."  Catherine Haygood doesn't mountain dance but leads her brothers with an impressive drum performance during the number.

Some of it is hokey....but hey, it's the Ozarks and audiences here eat it up.

You know what, I take the opening line of this story back....I saw 80 year-olds acting like kids during this show.

This show does not disappoint!

Full disclosure...I was given tickets to review this show but that did not have any influence on this review.
