Barry Williams is far removed from the role that made him famous, but he will never let his Greg Brady character die. Williams has made a new home for himself in the vacation capital of Missouri, a beautiful area known as Branson.
“Tony [Orlando] was the first guy to encourage me to come here,” says Williams of the “Halfway to Paradise” singer, who has been performing in Branson for 23 years now. “He said, ‘Barry, I think you’ll do well here.'”
“I checked it out, fell in love with the Ozarks,” added Williams. “And here I am with my musical variety show 70s Music Celebration!”
Williams and his 70s Music Celebration! show cover it all and totally capture the 1970s essence: disco, pop, one-hit wonders, TV theme songs, and more.
Some of the show’s most recognizable features include performances of “Hotel California” by the Eagles, “We’re An American Band” by Grand Funk Railroad, “You’ve Got A Friend” by James Taylor, and the theme song to Dukes of Hazard.
In addition to his 70s Music Celebration! show, Williams is also gearing up for the first ever Brady Bunch Convention at the Hilton Meadowlands in New Jersey, being held during the weekend of August 15th.
“It’s a huge convention that’s all Brady related,” says Williams. “It’s got activities, and games, and shows, and time together planned.” Cast members from The Brady Bunch — including those who made guest appearances during its run on television and in The Brady Bunch Movie — will make appearances. Williams will also perform as his character’s rock star alter ego, Johnny Bravo.
