The Hughes Brothers, and the “Worlds Largest Performing Family” is one of the great success stories of American entertainment.
With a cast of 50 (and growing), "it" is Electrifying! Incredible Harmonies, Entertaining Antics, Dynamic Dance, Soaring Instrumentals, Creative Production Numbers, and of course, Brotherly Love combine to make this one Huge Show!
Even though the brothers have been performing together for 28 years, 13 of which have been in Branson, they are still young, ranging in age from 30 to 40. Their musical training took place naturally as they were growing up. Raised with musical parents, who were always being asked to perform for various events, the brothers' talents simply seemed to fall into place. They've been harmonizing and performing as a group since the youngest brother , Andy, was only two years old. This undoubtedly accounts for their amazing polish and musical flexibility. But their incredible vocal sound is just one facet of their talent. Audiences are impressed with their high-energy movement and dance. They are also proficient and versatile instrumentalists. They have a rare ability to make you laugh one minute and tear up the next. Their strong presence, sincere charm, love of fun and seemingly endless talent are just a few of the reasons they are very well loved in Branson.
The brother's equally talented wives also perform in the show. Marty's beautiful wife Cindy was the first of the brothers wives to marry into the family. Cindy along with Jason's wife Mara, became a part of the Hughes Brothers first Christmas Show in Branson in 1995. Both Cindy and Mara helped as the Hughes Brothers have advanced in their music career, they were both right there helping in every decision and many rehearsals. They paved the way for the rest of the wives and children to be a part of the show. Today audiences have come to expect to see the brother's wives and all of the children in show. The Hughes Brothers started as a group of 5 brothers. Now the show has grown to involve the entire family of 45! Jason met his wife Mara as they performed together in a show at a theme park named Lagoon. Ryan's wife Carina is a classically trained prima ballerina and has danced on stages from San Francisco to New York City. As Andy's wife Becky sings and dances alongside Carina, you may notice a certain resemblance between the two. It's no coincidence; they're sisters! Becky studied ballet along with Carina. Adam's wife Vikki was the last wife to marry into the family. She has a wide range of talents from the stage to scrapbooking and actually beat Lindsay Davenport in a game of tennis. None of the wives are strangers to the stage; most are performance veterans, having sung, danced, and acted throughout their lives."
Some say "keep it in the family" and that's just what the Hughes Brothers have done! As the family has grown, so has the presence of the children in the show. And these kids have all the talent of their parents and grandparents! Soaring instrumentals and innovative dance are the hallmarks of the kids' performances. And you just have to see the Violin segment which includes a full-blown Melodrama!
