"Amazing entertainment in Branson"
July, 2016
We've seen many shows in Branson. Shoji's one of the best. It's amazing -the show's presentation of basically only 4 entertainers and a band. You'll enjoy it.

Went to his show about a month ago and it was excellent. Haven't saw him in three or four years he just gets better every time we see him. His prices are cheaper than they used to be also.

"One of the most enjoyable shows we have seen!"
January, 2016
We enjoyed this show very much and did not want it to end. Mr. Tabuchi is so talented and funny, we enjoyed all of his music and comedy, in addition to his daughter and the many other singers/dancers included in the show.

"Great Show"
November, 2015
This show is well worth seeing and is entertaining for all ages. We had a five year old with us and he really really enjoyed the show. We had not seen the show for about 15 years and I was thinking there is no way it is still as good, but it certainly was.

Reviewed November 13, 2018
We had never heard of Tabuchi before (even though he's performed throughout the USA for decades) and were blown away by his musical skills! He played traditional Christmas songs in many musical styles -- from bluegrass to rock'n'roll, classical to country! His humorous bantering between sets was fun and the costumes, singers and dancers were fabulous! A great show!

"Glad to see Shoji again"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 07, 2018
It was so nice to see Shoji play again since the last show we watched was quite a while ago. His Christmas show was at the Clay Cooper Theater and included a few non Christmas songs (Orange Blossom, Pure Imagination and Through the Eyes of Love). Shoji played a few Christmas songs along with back up singers/dancers. I loved watching the portions of Shoji playing his violin and could have done without portions when the rest of the team/his daughter played. Not terrible but if you want to just hear Shoji play, this won't be the way. It was nice to see him back for the little bit he was - wish it were more.
