3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected but... March 4, 2007
Format:DVD
I can't say it was anyone's fault in particular but let me keep others from making my mistake. At the time I bought this dvd from Amazon I do not believe it said anything about being a "reunion concert."

This is a 1995 reunion dvd rather than the actual Christmas show from yester-year. If you like that sort of thing that's cool, but for myself I purchased the dvd for more of a time period nostalgic purpose and was pretty disappointed.

For those who would like a better description, the back of the dvd says:

"In the 40 year holiday tradition of the Lawrence Welk Television Show, the musical family of stars gather at the Champagne Theatre in Branson, Missouri, for an all new Christmas Reunion Concert."

Appearances by:

Norma Zimmer (Host)

Fern Welk (Lawrence's wife)

The Lennon Sisters- Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Jo Ann Castle- The Skater's Watz

Jack Imel- Winter Wonderland

Mary Lou Metzger & Ken Delo- White Christmas

Tom Netherton- The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Bobby Burgess & Elaine Balden- Christmas Waltz & Jingle Bell Rock

Guy Hovis- Some Children See Him

Anacani- It Came Upon A Midnight Clear

Joe Feeney- O Holy Night & How Great Thou Art

The show was really boring to me but I couldn't drive myself to give it 1 star because I believe that fans of the show that grew up with the show would probably really enjoy it. I did give it a 3 because I felt it could have been described better than what it was at the time I bought it.

This was purchased for my 90 year old mother in law who has severe dementia. Hearing the music and watching the show that she always loved gave her immense joy as she sang along.

Couldn't be happier. This DVD, filmed in Branson, was excellent. All the familiar faces were there, and their voices, dancing, and music were just as strong as ever. I would highly recommend this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lawrence Welk Family Christmas January 10, 2013
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I like most of Lawrence Welk's shows. This was nice to see because you got to see and hear the second generation of The Welk Show performers such as the Lennon daughters and sons sing. Bobby Burgess danced with his daughter Wendi and Joe Feeney sang with his son Christopher Feeney and even the Lennon Brothers performed. This taped performance was from 1995 and they all looked great!

2.0 out of 5 stars Trying To Keep The Welk Spirit Alive November 12, 2008
Format:DVD
Sadly, Lawrence is now part of Christmas past but his family lives on! If you are a fan of the Lawrence Welk family and curious to see how they've aged -- this Dvd is for you. Old entertainers are like old athletes. Their best years are behind them. I'd label this product -- For Fans Only

5.0 out of 5 stars Ah, Memories July 4, 2014
By blossom
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just like I remember. I bought this for my 80+ year old mother so we could enjoy Christmas the way we used to. My father passed many years ago and it is still difficult around holiday time. Mom doesn't remember a lot and is not interested in much, except music. This was a wonderful gift, and really lifted her spirits. She even sang along.
