Branson, Missouri is the Live Music Capital of the World. Branson’s popularity began during the early 1990’s and it has continued to grow as a destination which offers a great variety of entertainment and talent. The Mesquite Resort Association and Free Spirit Vacations and Events are pleased to be bringing a little bit of Branson to Mesquite, NV. As part of the four-day festival “Mesquite’s Bransonfest Out West, Branson entertainers will delight audiences at the Casa Blanca Resort. Two matinee shows will feature inspiring entertainers, all over 60 years young. There will also be other events, such as a slot tournament, fitness activities, a fashion show and MORE!


Day 1
Arrive in Mesquite, NV and check into your hotel.
At 5:30pm, the Festivities begin with a Pre-Show
At 7pm the Opening Night Show - Branson is Americana featuring The Folk Collection and Harley Worthit will begin.
THE FOLK COLLECTION could just as well be named the "Singing the Classic Songs of the '60s Folk Era" group. Tony Unger, Ed Labowitz and Mike Sirota, grew up in the 1960's, when they fell in love with the story songs and 3-part harmonies of that acoustic era. Ed and Tony have been a duo on and off since High School. Mike joined the group in 2003.
Much of our repertoire is familiar to audiences of all ages. They have been influenced by the well-known groups of the era, but also have their own blend, sound - and humor. They grew up loving folk music, and have struck a "chord" with audiences of all ages, who enjoy listening to the words and harmonies - and joining in when the mood and song fit. Don't miss an opportunity to share an evening with THE FOLK COLLECTION. You will leave singing, toe-tapping, and most importantly, smiling.

HARLEY WORTHIT is Branson’s premier comedian. He moved to Lake of the Ozarks in 1980 to play drums on Lee Mace’s Ozark Opry. This exposed him to the Ozark’s family style of comedy. In 1985, he was playing guitar on a show, and one night, the comedian and his wife had a serious fight and he left town. The show had ten more weeks before the end of the season and Harley was asked to come up with a character and fill the comedy shoes. The rest is history. In 1987, he moved to Branson, finding work with the Wilkinson Brothers as Ole Jorgenson. After a short three months, he was hired by the Plummer Family and then by the Ozark Mountain Opry, which is where he started using the name "Harley Worthit." He went on to perform with the Presley’s from 1988  2001. Since then, he has worked with Pam Tillis, Doug Kershaw, Pierce Arrow, Splinter Middleton, Clay Cooper and Delene Andre. Currently, Harley is performing at the Grand Country Music Hall in the Comedy Jamboree Show and in the Down Home Country Show.
