How They Met

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

Team Gordy & Debbie

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 open their own show at  Jackie B. Goode's Uptown Cafe and Dinner Theater and since 2009 they have been entertaining in Arizona, Texas and Florida during the off-season of Branson, Missouri.



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.
