Gordy & Debbie are Branson's Multi-Award Winning Duo and the Stars of the former popular Branson Show, "A Tribute to George Strait Dinner Show" at Jackie B. Goode's Uptown Cafe and Dinner Theater. Gordy was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Debbie hails from Kimball, South Dakota and with their mid-west charm shining through their personalities, they have been in the business of entertaining people for over 25 years with their talent!
Gordy and Debbie met each other in Branson, Missouri at a singing competition called "The Branson Idol" in April of 2005, of which Gordy was a contestant. At that time Debbie was entertaining as a singing server at Branson's popular Hard Luck Diner and what began as a great friendship blossomed into a love affair and the couple married on December 10, 2006
Shortly after meeting each other, Gordy and Debbie began singing together and realized there was a special chemistry in their craft. They began seeking every opportunity to perform anywhere and everywhere they could...whether it paid or not! Eventually doors began to open for even bigger opportunities and on September 1, 2010 they opened their own show at Jackie B. Goode's Uptown Cafe and Dinner Theater. In December of 2021 Gordy and Debbie chose to end their Tribute to George Strait in Branson after 12 1/2 years of success in Branson and they have now taken their talents to Mesa Arizona where they perform regularly. In June, July and August Gordy and Debbie take to the road and play all throughout the mid-western United States.
Both of the Gordy & Debbie shows incorporate the feel of a big production show, complete with backdrops, 10 foot video screens
with video production, colorful stage lighting and an awesome Bose sound system to enhance their performance as they entertain.
A Tribute to George Strait is the show that takes you on a journey through

his first number one hit and how George got his big break that launched him

own stories about George and features music in the show from some of the
female artists that have opened for George Strait down through the years,
