The Adventures of The Haygoodsgives a first hand look into the life and music of one of Branson, Missouri’s most popular and entertaining performing families. The Haygoods are 7 real life brothers and 1 sister who have performed in Branson for 20 years, for over 5 million people! The family includes Timothy, Patrick, Dominic, Shawn, Michael, Matt hew, Aaron and the only girl in the family, Catherine. They range in age from 33 to 17 and are a truly unique American musical success story.
The Adventures of the Haygoods TV show will have a weekly live music performance featuring the Haygoods playing their 20 instruments, the tight harmonies they are known for, and of course the energy and excitement which has become their trademark. The show will also feature weekly adventure segments in and around the Ozark mountains. The Haygoods play as hard as they work onstage. They enjoy many outdoor activities including caving, flying airplanes, riding ATV’s, overnight camping trips in the mountains and having outrageous adventures around the lakes, creeks and valleys of the Ozarks. The Haygoods also give back to the community by encouraging underprivileged children, giving them instruments and offering advice to help them reach their dreams of playing music.
The story of The Haygood family began in a small singlewide mobile home in the backwoods of Boerne, Texas. Mom Haygood started the youngest Haygoods playing the violin as soon as they could rosin the bow, as a way to keep them out of trouble. The family grew up playing music together and in 1988 started touring all around Texas and eventually all over the Midwest playing festivals and fairs. Playing music together brought them out of a difficult economic situation and also brought them closer together as a family. In 1993, the Haygoods packed their bags and moved to Branson, Missouri where they began performing at Silver Dollar City, a local theme park. What started as a 2 week contract ended up lasting 9 years! As the Haygoods grew up performing at Silver Dollar City, they took up more instruments and honed their talents, eventually moving their show to the Branson strip in 2002. Since that time the show has been a smash hit and has become a Branson tradition enjoyed by tens of thousands every year.
