Righteous Brothers' Bill Medley & daughter McKenna Medley

Righteous Brothers' Bill Medley & daughter McKenna Medley
This show is no longer active

Now performing at the Starlite Theatre, 3115 W Highway 76 (located on The Strip near the Titanic Museum).


Bill Medley, best known as one half of the singing duo The Righteous Brothers, performs with his daughter McKenna Medley. The Righteous Brothers' first hit was "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," produced by Phil Spector in 1964. Follow-up hits included "(You're My) Soul and Inspiration" and "Unchained Melody." The duo broke up in 1968, but returned with another hit in 1974, "Rock And Roll Heaven." On March 10, 2003, The Righteous Brothers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.


In 1987 Bill Medley's duet with Jennifer Warnes, "(I've Had) The Time of My Life," was included on the "Dirty Dancing" soundtrack album and the single reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100.


McKenna Medley, this year just 24 years-old – but performing on-stage since the age of 5, is the daughter of The Righteous Brothers' Bill Medley. She's been performing in Branson since June of 2006 with The Comets, Dave Somerville, her dad Bill Medley, and Paul Revere & The Raiders (McKenna's older brother, Darrin, has sung and performed with Paul Revere also). Last season (2010) she joined her father on a number of duets and performed songs on her own. The show was a success and returns in 2011!


The legendary rock star Bill Medley and his daughter McKenna will take you on a breathless journey down memory lane that you won't want to miss!


Watch this video of Bill Medley, America's Got Talent winner Michael Grimm & Larry Hanson. It's an amazing performance of "This Will Be The Last Time."


And this video for McKenna Medley with her dad singing "Bridge Over Troubled Water." You'll see why she has won Female Vocalist of the Year in Branson.


The shows are at 3:00 pm or 8:00 pm; September 1 through October 24, 2011.
