From his origin in a small town in Japan, country music fiddler and singer Shoji Tabuchi has followed a long path to amazing success in the US.  Through the years, Shoji has polished and evolved his craft, and for over 20 years he’s headlined an incomparable show at his namesake theatre in Branson, Missouri.  Shoji’s versatility and musical talent are nothing short of amazing, and his show melds the music of Broadway, movies, classical, country, pop, rock and western into a fabric of musical perfection.  For years, Shoji has been the hottest, must-see show on the Branson strip.

Superior talent and performance from beginning to end!Reviewer: jmm

The fact that as of 2014, the show is celebrating its 26th year in Branson is a tribute and testament in and of itself. Times and things change...that's expected; but Mr. Tabuchi exhibits the energy of a timeless "Samson."

Word of mouth must be spread as testimonials to promote not only this "wizard" of the violin, but also the rest of his first-class entertaining show reaching all age groups.

When in Branson, seeing his show is a must. If you miss it, it will be your loss... and you'll regret it!

Had no idea what his music represented, when he first started performing, I thought he was singing in a foreign language. The show definitely improved from beginning to end.

Reviewer: Judith

He is fabulous showman with so much talent and mixes easily with the audience - I saw him in Branson and loved the show and couldn't wait to see him again locally. He plays such a variety of music he can satisfy everyone's taste - the extras, i.e dancing trees and people walking on an off the state were a distraction he didn't need. He is a show in itself - the musicians backing him up did a great job as well.....

Reviewer: David

The show was excellent! It was fun, clean, family oriented. Perfect for my young violinist daughter who is only taught classical violin. I was particularly impressed with Shoji Tabuchi's dry humor. It was an added surprise. I may make a trip to Branson MO. it was so good. It was the best show at AMT so far for me and I'm not exactly a bug country music fan.

Shoji Tabuchi puts on a great show. When you go to his show, you come away feeling Shoji really likes you. Thats the warmth he brings to every show. We have been going to his show in Branson, Mo. for 3 years now and always come away feeling his love.....amazing

Terrific Entertainer - and since we probably won't get to Branson - we were thrilled with the opportunity to see him at AMT.

Reviewer: Nancy

I thought that there would have been more background dancers--more of a revue type of show, although I did enjoy the show.

5 out of 5 stars
Reviewer: Joan

First and foremost he is a most talented violinist..with a great backup band. Secondly, I loved the variety of his tunes..something for everyone, and thirdly of course the costuming of Christina and her backups were so beautiful and creative but most of all was enjoying the warm personality of Shoji and fun watching the changing of jackets. A great show worth every penny!

FUNNY AND HE KNOWS HOW TO FIDDLE WITH A VIOLIN

4 out of 5 stars
Reviewer: Linda

Compared to his concerts in Branson, this show was a disappointment. The sound was difficult to understand. The band was louder than he was! We sat in U row. He is a very talented performer and can make that violin sing, but it just wasn't as good of a show that it could have been. Thought there would have been more backup performers and more songs of earlier years.

Reviewer: Marcia

Shoji is such a versatile, talented violinist. It was most entertaining but being that we saw the his show in Branson, AMT is a much more limiting venue.

Because we were expecting to see a much more theatrical involved production that had been described to us by people who had seen him in Branson.

We paid to see Shoji Tabuchi and felt that he was overshadowed by the 3 performers dancing around the stage and the loudness of the backup band. We would have preferred a concert focusing on his talent - forget the dancers and constant costume changes!!!

We just saw Shoji Tabuchi in Branson and his show is awesome! During our week in Branson we saw 16 shows and the Shoji show was our number 1 favorite. Everyone should see this talented man.
