The Hamner Barber Theater announced today that “Branson’s Premiere Impressionist” Jeff Brandt will be joining the talented cast of the Dalena Ditto Country Variety Show as Dalena’s featured guest entertainer.
Jeff will bring an entirely new dimension of entertainment to Dalena’s already superb production of timeless classic country and gospel music. Not only is Jeff considered one of the top singing impressionists in the country, he has earned a national reputation as a voice over artist and radio announcer including spending 10 years as the “Voice of the Ozarks” on Branson’s Home Town Radio KRZK – 106.5 FM. He was an announcer for The Beach Boys and a regular on the Penny Gilley Show, both live and nationally televised on RFD-TV. His voice has been featured on numerous national television and radio commercials.
Jeff and his wife Gina have called Branson home since moving here in 1990. After 28 years of marriage, they are enjoying the peaceful lifestyle of living in the Ozarks while keeping a very busy performance schedule. Settling in Branson is especially nice for this talented couple after spending many years entertaining audiences across the country in Jeff’s original show band called Galaxy.
From Branson to Las Vegas and Back!
Jeff has co-starred in several Branson shows over the years, from the popular Jennifer In The Morning and Doug Gabriel shows, to the high-energy Wayne Newton show which featured Jeff’s amazing vocal talents for 13 years both in Branson and Las Vegas. Wayne loved having Jeff as part of his show so much, that Jeff even moved to Las Vegas for 8 years to work with Wayne and that’s where he earned the nickname, “The Voice.”
“Jeff is one of the most incredible talents I have ever known. There are many entertainers who could learn alot from Jeff.” - Wayne Newton
Among Jeff’s other accomplishments are two appearances on NBC’s “Tonight Show,” a featured spot on the TV show “Las Vegas,” two featured film appearances in “Vegas Vacation” and “Smoking Aces,” performances at the White House in Washington DC, the National Republican Convention, and a special concert for the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, Frederick James Finch for his retirement ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base In Washington DC accompanied by the United States Air Force Band. Add to those impressive credits 8 overseas tours for the USO entertaining troops in Kuwait, Italy, Iraq, the Persian Gulf, Korea, Hungary, Kosovo, Centcom, Bosnia and you’ve got a well rounded performer who has not only paid his dues and earned his credits, but also took the time to give back to our military troops who protect the freedoms that we Americans enjoy in our country.

“An incredible young talent! Jeff is my shadow” - Rich Little
When asked what else makes Jeff Brandt and Dalena Ditto so compatible to perform together on stage at the Hamner Barber Theater, Jeff quipped, “like Dalena, I am born in Iowa. That’s a big selling point… ha!”
