In my opinion Branson needs something to spur a regroup in Branson. That is what we were hoping to bring by re-opening the Grand palace. The project would have brought top artist as well as some artist that we would hope at some point in time would consider Branson for longer stays at one of the theatres we had planned on purchasing.
The problem is everyone that either is in a position to this or has the money to do it believes that Branson is fine. There are high times and great spotlight moments in Branson just like in the last week when we had American Idol here and some of the theatres are stepping up and bringing in some great acts but in my opinion it is just not enough to spur the kind of growth we need. I have reached out to people like John Joslin, Johnny Morris, Jim Morris, Lee Iacocca, Narvel Blackstock(Reba's Manager & husband), Garth Brooks as well as a ton of people in the entertainment industry from California.
They have all had my proposal in hand with a great return on investment but I don't walk in those circles. I am just a man with a vision and nobody gets it. These ideas would transform and inspire a new build up in Branson. At any rate without something happening soon I am sure that the FDIC will sell the building for what ever they can get out of it. Hopefully they won't want to tear it down like some want to.

I had a gentleman from the FDIC call me this in my dealings with this building. Since August 20, 2008 I have had my eyes set for a purpose that only God knows to raise this building back to the splendor that only the Grand Palace can accomodate.
Many people may think I am nuts and that is okay but Branson needs this building. It is the only place that can bring in the acts on a consistant basis that can give the big names we need in this town once again.
Some feel like the tornado should have leveled it and we would have been better for it. Well it did not happen so it stands for a reason. I still believe that in America you can set your eyes on something and if you are determined some way or another that dream can be accomplished.
|My team and I are working our entire lives around raising the funds to do the renovations and bring the jewel of Branson back to a working status. |
From the time it was announced that it was going up for auction on the 21st of August 2008 my life has been wrapped up in creating a business plan and seeking investors to help us with this endeavor.
It has not been fun or easy and we have been turned down by alot of people including some really big name people. This does not deter us and we are still moving forward knowing that someone can catch the vision with us and help us to get to that place.
I know everyone is anxious as we are but wanted to just let you know that the fat lady has not sung yet and we are still working to bring this lady back to life.
