    Billy Hill and the Hillbillies moving to FOF area

    In the Samland column, it said that Billy Hill and the Hillbillies would be moving out of the Golden Horseshoe Saloon to the Festival of Fools area behind BTR on June 18th. The column implicated that the reasons are a larger area but wasn't real specific. I'm confused as to what will go in the GHS and if the Bill Hill... show will loose it's intimate charm in this large arena atmosphere.

    Thoughts??

    Only one way to find out...go and see it. I'm sure he will still talk to people in the first rows, and I'm sure he'll still have people clap along, the show may change a little but mainly be the same show just with more people being able to watch

    me too. The Billies and Golden Horseshoe are synonymous.

    I do not know if this is true or not, but the Billies have played back there before so this is not a new thing.

    The improv comedy team they have there still I imagine... I dunno what they call themselves. It is kinda funny that some call this sacrilegious when Billy Hill and the Hillbillies didn't even originate at the Golden Horseshoe.... they used to play in Critter/Bear Country, then made a move over, and have played at the ranch for awhile as well.

    It is my understanding that the Laughing Stock (the comedy team) will be in the Horseshoe full time during the summer. Also, the Billy's green team will be coming back for the summer as well, so the show will be 7 days a week instead of 5. The green team will play on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and does not include Billy Elvis or Billy Fiddle.

    I've seen the Laughing Stock a few times. It has been the "Finding Sally a Husband" show each time. Do they have other skits as well?

    ^Yes, they also do a skit where they elect a new mayor of Frontierland and one where they solve a bank robbery. They get people up onstage to reenact the bank robbery.

    Re: Billy Hill and the Hillbillies moving to FOF area

    My opinion only, but Laughing Stock in the Horseshoe 7 days a week would be a waste of an excellent venue. I'm not at all impressed with their performances.

    And yeah I know that this was not the original space where the Billies performed, but they have for a very very long time and is probably the place where most people have seen them. Their show and the Horseshoe are just a good match.

    So...the FoF is where the Big Thunder Barbeque is? or just near it.

    I love the Billy Hill show. But realistically, the average guest doesn't know about the show at all. They only know about the show because it randomly started while they were eating. This may turn out to be good thing if word is spread about the show. It's probably a good sign that they want to make it 7 days a week.

    Well, somebody knows about the BH show with their standing room only crowds! Also, they used to go 7 days a week with different teams of Billies.


    This has been a Filmways presentation dahling.
