Dave and Daphne are here

dave and daphneDave and Daphne are here again. This couple loves to entertain and you can see it when they get on the stage. This group has won a couple of Valley Star Awards including Duet Musical Group of the Year, and in 2019 they won Entertainer of the Year.

Once you see them on stage, you know they earned those titles. Their shows are full of laughter, tears, and a pull back in time with their classics and banter. They sing a little bit of country and little bit of gospel.

A Valley favorite: Ralph Kuster

20171207 Ralph KusterRalph Kuster has been a Valley favorite for several years. He is well known for his variety of acts, wide-ranging vocals and the energy he puts into his shows. With what he does now, you would not believe that he spent many years teaching golf.

When not teaching, he could be found singing something in his car, in his room, or anywhere else he had a chance to sing. His love for singing eventually led him to pursuing a career in music in 2005.

It was in 2006, performing in Nashville, where someone told him he needed to go to Branson. He later found out that someone was a member of Toby Keith’s band.

Once he got to Branson, he created his own show and rented his own theater, paying for all the expenses of running a show. It was a struggle, he said, but he kept going. By 2008 he had a leading one-man show in Branson.

The event is not open to the general public, but only to Activity Director Association members. Tickets are required for the events.
