Jeerk on stage in Branson.
Five multi-talented Swedish rhythm artists/dancers/musicians with varied backgrounds have made a footprint in Branson this summer.
Swedish rhythm artist group Jeerk is performing at the Hughes Brothers theatre in Branson, Missouri until late October. (www.hughesbrotherstheatre.com) The critics have raved about them since they started performing five years ago all over Europe – “The late Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly must be happy in heaven when they see something like this.” (LT, Östersund) “These five young men can do anything that can be done on a stage, and they do it magnificently.” (Ystad Allehanda)
The entertainers bring rhythm from everything in their way - hockey sticks, barrels, musical instruments etc. They tap, sing, dance - yes, they are doing all on stage that can be named entertainment. (Think Blue Man Group meets Fred Astaire in a Rock ‘n’ Rhythm show...)
Jeerk comes from Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast. Their show is filled with rhythms, energy and musicality.
