Billy Hill and the Hillbillies - the Green Team is coming back this summer!

The Green team is coming back* on Tuesday, June 19.

"It is true loyal fans...the Green team is back at Disneyland.
We'll be playing on Tuesday and wednesday at the Ranch.
The other teams will be performing there on the other days
so when ever you go you'll have fun. Hope to see you there."


Here is a video of the Green team: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfwsXZWEXJ4

YAY!
That was the group that we saw when our family went on our first Disneyland trip. We loved it!

I saw 'Elvis' Billy on my last trip. I know he's a favorite for many, but I preferred the other Billy!

I'll have to try to catch them, to see how they stack up. But honestly, I can't imagine Billy Hill without Kirk Wall!

I like Kirk Wall, too!

And I'm looking forward to also seeing John Eaden in the Green Team this summer.

Ditto. He is awesome. I can't wait to see him in 2 weeks. I started a thread a bit earlier regarding the new location since I couldn't find the old one. Does anyone have details?

What exactly, is the Green Team? From what I saw of the video it is a Christmas thing, but we are in the summer.

The Green Team is led by John Eaden, and they're back after a 3-year hiatus.

Malcon10t likes the Green Team, and that's good enough for me.

The Green Team starts playing today (June 19) in the Big Thunder Ranch - Festival of Fools Arena.

They will be playing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the summer.

But what is the difference between the "green team" and the regular show?

Kirk (Elvis) is my favorite. I am just not a fan of the green team nor the Laughing stock show. Sorry don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings but that's just the way I feel. Good to see they will have variety though for everyone.

Jen, the green team is the group that was performing during the girls trip a couple of years ago, when Jessica was called up on stage.
The blue and gold teams are who we saw on this last trip. HTH.

Yes, all three teams will be playing at the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree.

As far as we know, it's only for the summer.
