When it comes to variety entertainment, nobody does it better than Barleens. With 17 different shows to choose from this season, you are sure to find a number of ways to please your musical palate and keep coming back for more!
Variety Show One is a banquet of musical styles that includes country, rock and roll, blues, boogie woogie, big band and even some timeless classical masterpieces. Musicians in the ensemble hail from all across the United States and have performed in some of the most prestigious venues across America. Together this multi-talented cast creates dazzling renditions of vocals, music and impersonations of such high caliber that you'll have to remind yourself you're not in Vegas.
Variety Show Two is another feast of musical genres that highlights individual “Opry Entertainers.” Trumpeter, vocalist and hilarious comedian, Howard Schneider, is one of the featured players who along with the horn section are showcased in this performance. You won't believe how spot-on his Louis Armstrong impression really is!
Drink in the memories of the 50s and early 60s at the Old Time Rock and Roll Show One. This show features the memorable hits that topped the Billboard charts during this great music era. See how well you remember the lyrics to these classics when you join in with a call and response with the masterful musicians of Barleens.
The Old Time Rock and Roll Show Two is another chance to relish more classic hits and legendary artists of the 50s and 60s. This exuberant show will transport you (via a Pink Cadillac, no doubt) through the years when rock and roll was king. Enjoy your vintage rock and roll odyssey right from your seat!
Younger baby boomers can get a taste of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s in the thrilling show, Bobby Van Rooy & CC Ryder. This lively show will have you shakin' your groove thing as this band brings back the nostalgic beats of soul, disco, funk, rock, rhythm and blues, pop, and swing.
If you are a fan of country music, you'll love what Barleens has on tap for the Country Jubilee. The Opry gang has orchestrated a show that will keep you clapping, stomping your feet, and singing along to your favorite country tunes from this era and decades past.
Speaking of palates, world class entertainment is not the only tasty treat you'll find at Barleens. Because before the music even starts while you visit with your friends, you'll enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal, served with Barleens signature warmth and hospitality by some of the cast and crew. Indulge in the famous Arizona Opry Chocolate Cake, which is still made from an old time family recipe and served before dinner in Barleens tradition.
There is nothing quite like enjoying dinner and a show. It is even better when you can enjoy them both at such a reasonable price. While one would expect to pay top dollar for such a first rate experience, the dinner and show is just $39 per adult and $30 per child, 4-12 at Barleens.
