Direct from Branson, Mo., comedian Jim Stafford joins forces with entertainer Moe Bandy for a heartwarming evening of country music and homespun humor at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 21 at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center at Northwest Florida State College in Niceville. “Jim Stafford & Moe Bandy — The Grand Tour” will appear in the center’s mainstage theater and is billed as a “good old-fashioned musical comedy and variety show with a little vaudeville thrown in.” Tickets range from $25 to $45 and are on sale at 850-729-6000 or www.mattiekellyartscenter.org.

Stafford creates hilarious antics from everyday life and satirizes the obvious with his music and comedy, while Bandy is your original “good ol’ boy” coming from a background of bull riding and steel working before making it big in country music.  Famous for his million-selling records, “Spiders & Snakes”, “Cow Patti”, and the infamous “My Girl Bill”, Stafford combines hysterical comedy with masterful performances on the classical guitar and heart-warming stories of the human spirit.

Bandy’s songs range from bluegrass to classic country, and his show includes a touch of his famous comedy routines as well. His long string of hits include “Bandy The Rodeo Clown”, ”Till I’m Too Old To Die Young”, “Americana”, “Hank Williams You Wrote My Life”, “It’s A Cheatin’ Situation”, “Just Good Ol’ Boys”, “Barstool Mountain”, “I Cheated Me Right Out of You”, “I Just Started Hatin’ Cheatin’ Songs Today”, “Rodeo Romeo”, “You Haven’t Heard the Last of Me”, “Holding The Bag” and dozens of other chart-toppers.

Other new shows for 2014 include the Acrobats of China, Feb. 5; Glenn Miller Orchestra, Feb. 12; Generations: A Collection of Black American Music, Feb. 28; and Lady Smith Black Mambazo, March 21.
