    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! :charac2:

    And I'm looking forward to also seeing John Eaden in the Green Team this summer. :thumbsup2

    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. :wizard:

    Malcon10t likes the Green Team, and that's good enough for me. :thumbsup2

    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. :charac2:

    HTH :)

    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. :)

    In the Golden Horseshoe, there were usually good seats available about 30 minutes before showtime.

    I'm not familiar with the BTR Jamboree. I suspect 20 minutes before showtime should be o.k., but that's just a guess. :)

    Jason (DisneyGeek.com) posted 10 photos and a short video.

    Here are a couple of his photos:

    "A wider shot to show the crowd. There were more guests in the area than I had seen the past
    few weeks, but felt lighter than the crowds I usually see in the Horseshoe." - DisneyGeek (6/22)

    Thanks! I keep reading about how great it is, but because we never make a plan, we never seem to get to it. It looks like maybe 30 minutes out would be good. We really need to see it this time.
