With the recent announcement the Baldknobbers would be relocating to a new theater, representatives from “Jammin’ for Jesus,” a monthly concert event that also doubles as a fundraiser, confirmed they will also call the new venue home beginning Sunday, April 2, at 2 p.m.

“We are excited to be a part of ‘Jammin’ for Jesus’ gospel singing at the Branson Famous Theater,” said the theater’s General Manager Brandon Mabe. “It’s an opportunity for the Baldknobbers to welcome the community to our new theater and enjoy the gifts of these artists.”

The first “Jammin’ for Jesus” of the year will be hosted by Mabe and Bruce Haynes, and feature vocalist Wendell Johnson, Marsha Sue Mitchell, Darrell and Nemra Rhoden, as well as Beverly Lee, Greg & Suzy York, David Mays, Bud and Lynda Lynn, Freedom, and resident saxophonist Gary Dooms.

In addition to featuring gospel music, “Jammin’ for Jesus” will benefit the New Life Restoration Center.

“The New Life Restoration Center’s mission is to heal those addictive individuals that are hurting by sharing hope and compassion,” said the center’s Director Danny Byrd. “During this Easter Season, we share our love for those in need of life’s direction.”

As always, admission to the monthly “Jammin’ for Jesus” is free with a donation of household paper goods to benefit New Life Restoration Center. Items needed include paper towels, napkins, toilet tissues, paper plates, and similar products. In addition to collecting goods, a love offering will be taken.

“Jammin’ for Jesus” will kick off at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 2, at the Branson Famous Theatre, formerly known as the New Shanghai Theatre, located at 645 South State Hwy 165.
