The Johnson Strings Reviews
The quality of musicianship displayed by this performing family was awesome. I believe they are the best string group in all of Branson. They played a nice selection of music from classical to pop to ... more »

I recently attended the Johnson Strings, and was very pleasantly surprised by the show. Another member of my family looked into the show and purchased the tickets, so I knew almost nothing about the show or what to expect going in. The show consists of a father and mother, with five of the their kids (and sometimes a sixth) who play music together. All the members of the family play one or more instruments during the show, with an emphasis on string instruments. The family also sings very well. The show is divided into two parts, with an intermission in between. The selection of music is delightfully eclectic, with a mishmash of classical, popular, bluegrass/fiddle tunes, gospel and more. I guarantee you'll love all the music, whether or not they're genres you usually listen to. The Johnson family has a wonderful stage presence, and the performance is extremely polished and professional. It's also incredibly entertaining and funny, and will no doubt leave you grinning and clapping with delight. I also appreciated the intimate venue; it's quite a small space, so you're always close to the action. After the show, you're able to meet the members of the Johnson family, and they are extremely warm and friendly. They also run all aspects of the show themselves, from ticketing, ushering, concessions, etc. Without a doubt, I would recommend the Johnson Strings. I've seen almost every show in Branson, and this ranks among my very favorites. Looking forward to seeing their Christmas show!
Fantastic music! Amazingly friendly and personable too! This was great entertainment for the whole family. All of our kids play strings and they LOVED it. Thank you Johnson Strings for a great evening!
