Moe Bandy honored with special proclamation

Another popular entertainer was honored this week by Mayor Larry Milton and the Branson Board of Aldermen.


Country legend Moe Bandy was present at Tuesday night's Branson City Council meeting when May 28 was proclaimed Moe Bandy Day in Branson.


Bandy, known for such hits as “Too Old to Die Young,” “Bandy the Rodeo Clown,” “It's a Cheating Situation,” “Americana,” and many more top songs, was one of Branson's favorite headliners during the 1990s and beyond.


Bandy opened his Americana Theater on Branson's 76 Country Boulevard in 1991 and continued to perform in the music mecca for many years. His theater, originally built and occupied by the Plummer Family, was the third theater to grace the 76 Strip.  


Bandy's show was popular with motor coach groups from across the country and music lovers of all ages. Moe Bandy continues to perform road shows around the nation. His website lists upcoming concerts in Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Florida and several dates in Alaska.


Bandy was honored and celebrated for his many contributions to the Branson live entertainment industry.


Said alderman Marshall Howden “As we get around to honoring all of our Branson legends, the list would never be complete unless we included Moe Bandy. It was so touching for alderman Clay Cooper and myself to see how much this honor touched Mr. Bandy. It was a special night at City Hall!”
