The Hamners are best known for their one-of-a-kind act in which they produce several beautiful Macaws and Cockatoos that appear amid flying cards, flaming swords, falling coins and jewels. The birds then perform an incredible flight over and around the audience before gracefully returning to the stage. Other original illusions include Stargate, The Lightning Levitation, Vertigo: The Fall of Death, Secrets of the Lost Ark Revealed, and the magical finale to their Veteran’s tribute, “Thank You’s Not Enough.”
Jeff Brandt - Jeff is considered one of the top singing impressionists in the country. Jeff has co-starred in several Branson shows over the years, from the popular Jennifer In The Morning and Doug Gabriel shows, to the high-energy Wayne Newton show which featured Jeff’s amazing vocal talents for 13 years both in Branson and Las Vegas. Wayne loved having Jeff as part of his show so much, that Jeff even moved to Las Vegas for 8 years to work with Wayne and that’s where he earned the nickname, “The Voice.” Among Jeff’s other accomplishments are two appearances on NBC’s “Tonight Show,” a featured spot on the TV show “Las Vegas,” two featured film appearances in “Vegas Vacation” and “Smoking Aces,” performances at the White House in Washington DC, and the National Republican Convention. Add to those impressive credits 8 overseas tours for the USO entertaining troops in Kuwait, Italy, Iraq, the Persian Gulf, Korea, Hungary, Kosovo, Centcom, Bosnia and you’ve got a well rounded performer who has not only paid his dues and earned his credits, but also took the time to give back to our military troops who protect the freedoms that we Americans enjoy in our country.
