Jonny in Branson!

This weekend I packed my bags and took a road trip to see my best friend Jonny in Branson, MO.



I was super excited because I finally got to see his show! Jonny is a singer and dancer for the Shoji Tabuchi Show, one of the most famous shows in Branson.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the city, Branson is the "Las Vegas of the Midwest." Like the actual Las Vegas, it has a huge strip with theaters featuring live music and variety shows. It is a famous tourist destination in the United States.

The Shoji Tabuchi Theatre is incredibly beautiful.

To give you an idea, here are photos I took of the women's restroom.




(above is the washroom attendant who provides perfume and lotion)

Awesome, right?

The show was spectacular. Shoji is an internationally famous Japanese country music fiddler.

If you ever find yourself in Branson, I insist you see this show. You can find the website here.



The music was phenomenal.

Jonny, of course, was the best part of the show. (And I'm not just saying that as an adoring fan and devoted bff).



He was the best dancer.



He was the best singer.



He was adorable.

Jonny has been doing the show for more than a year now. He's also in the midst of recording an album. So he's well on his way to becoming a huge star. It's really exciting to be along for the ride!

I had such a fun weekend with him. Spending time with Jonny and watching him sing (whether it is on stage or in his living room) makes me happy. I love him so much!

I was sad to come home.



I'm counting down the days until I see him again!

I hope you all had a terrific weekend as well!

Wow, that bathroom almost doesn't even look like a bathroom at all! And that show sounds wonderful :)

A washroom attendant?! Um. wow. I am from the Midwest, but the first thing I heard of when I thought of Branson, was Branson, NE. ha-ha Definitely wouldn't look like that ; )

I think if I can't make it to Las Vegas, I might have to take the shorter/cheaper? route and check out Branson, MO

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Your friend Johnny definitely sounds like a star. Aren't you glad you met him before the world noticed? Great times for both of you. If I ever drive through Branson, I will check out that place, unlikely, I know, since we are Seattle-based now, but why not, right? In Spain this week, not quite next door to Branson either. ;-) Veronique aka French Girl in Seattle

A Japanese Country Western Fiddler?

Wow.

Also - I love having talented friends. I had a friend who was nominated for a Tony and I couldn't stop telling random people about it. I'm pretty sure it got annoying for everyone else.

Tights Lover said...

Wow. That sounds like quite a weekend. I had never heard of Branson, but it sounds pretty cool.

The show looks amazing, I'd definitely love to check it out. Hell, I'd go just to see the ladies' room!

OMG. OMG!!! That bathroom!!! Jennifer, I need that bathroom in my life. Holy cow. That is drop dead amazing. I'd actually kinda never leave. I live in Vegas (well, like a quarter of the time), and Vegas has no bathroom that looks like THAT, let me tell you.

I'm glad you two had so much fun! We readers like it when Johnny comes to visit!
