Video Flashback to 1994…
One of the most popular Branson shows in the mid 1990’s was the Glen Campbell Goodtime Show at the beautiful Glen Campbell Goodtime Theatre.
The production ran from 1994 – 1996 and introduced several talented new performers to the Branson entertainment scene, including ventriloquist Jim Barber who now co-stars with Dave & Denise Hamner at the Hamner Barber Theater on Shepherd of the Hills Expressway.
On a recent article entitled, Secrets of The Hamners Magical Parrots Revealed?, we shared a Branson Show Video Flashback from 1998 in which The Hamners appeared on the Nationally syndicated TV series, Young America Outdoors, while they were headlining the Branson City Lights show at the Remington Theatre in Branson.
In this video clip, we go back 18 years to 1994 to see Jim Barber perform an original music routine he performed with his comical ventriloquist character named “Baby”.
The music of the song “Junk Food Baby” was composed and performed by Glen Campbell’s longtime musical conductor T.J. Kuenster. The lyrics were written by both Jim Barber and T.J. for this performance at the Glen Campbell Goodtime Theatre. T.J. also composed several other musical scores that are currently being performed by Jim Barber in the 2012 edition of the Hamner Barber Variety Show including “Chico Pete,” “I Like Girls,” “Vote For Me,” and the theme song to the Hamner Barber Holiday Production, “The Wings of Christmas“ that is a highlight each year during Branson’s Ozark Mountain Christmas Celebration.
