" There he is, playing that crystal-faced grand piano with all of the flourish and flair that you’d expect of a musical showman that has attained his star status. All of that beautiful plinking and plunking and then those handsome runs starting at the higher end of the keyboard and flowing down seemingly forever. Surrounded by a well-costumed and choreographed cast of a dozen dancers and some of the best sound and lights in the business, Dino is up on stage, getting it done.

OK- let’s get this out of the way up- front. Dino’s last name is spelled: Kartsonakis. Now if you want to know how it is property pronounced you’ll have to go to some Grecian expert, or if you’re in Branson, maybe stop- Dino’s 24 Karat Cake Cafe and ask one of those guys. While that last name isn’t so easy to remember, after seeing his show, it’s easy to understand why Dino is so hard to forget. He has millions of fans, several gold records and a Grammy Award. This guy Dino is a wonderful showman, has a huge production, and an on-stage personality that is genuinely warm and gracious. Greatly- gifted performers who freely and publicly acknowledge God as the true source of their talents are doing the right thing with the Lord’s gifts. And Dino’s sound is heavenly, too.

BRANSON REVIEWED! was created to help the millions of tourists cut-through he clutter that has come to dominate the Branson show scene. According to their un-edited PR, just about every show was awarded best this or that. And while we don’t intend to give out awards, we do hope to give our readers the independent opinions that will help them find what’s best for them.

There are a whole lot of awards handed-out in the entertainment world today. In fact, there are so many awards shows that all of those trophies, crystals and plaques just don’t really mean that much anymore. Well, there are two exceptions, the Academy Awards and the Grammies. Originally called the Gramophone Awards (in fact, the gilded statute is hand-crafted to resemble an old-time gramophone), a Grammy is equivalent to an Oscar. Every other award? No better than being named winner of a pie eating contest.

The Grammy Awards began in 1958 and Frank Sinatra won his first that initial year and would go on to receive nine more. They are really something to behold. Visitors to Branson can check out Mickey Gilley’s award case just inside his theater and, right next to his photos with President Reagan is his well-deserved Grammy. Know that Grammy winners are the real deal. Now in addition to winning one, Dino was nominated for a second one for that great Chariots of Fire soundtrack. But the piano man isn’t looking back or resting on his laurels either. No, he’s moving ahead, producing big but endearing seasonal shows in Branson and touring at mega-churches and other venues throughout the country.

The evening BRANSON REVIEWED! made it out to check-in on Dino we were immediately reminded at what a great draw the great piano showman is. Thousands and thousands, in awe, hanging on every majestic note, and later, on the magic of his ministry.

Dino is a fine piano man and an even better man, husband and father. Wife “singer” Cheryl is in the show as well, adding vocals and leading the ballroom dancers in some over-the-top colorfully staged production numbers, but, in the center of it all always- and rightly so- is Dino, doing his thing. He’s playing with passion.

Some musicians are classically trained. Others play by ear, but Dino Kartsonakis does so much more. Oh, sure, he’s properly trained, but what he does best is play the piano with heart. And soul. If you are in Branson during Easter or Christmas, BR! respectfully recommends The Dino Show.
