Fans of Billy Hill and the Hillbillies, the bluegrass and country band, take heart. The band, which ended its long run at Disneyland earlier this month has found a new home - Knott's Berry Farm.

The band, now called the Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies, start performing in Critter Country in 1986, In the Spring of 1988 they started playing at Disneyland's State Fair and the rest was history.

In November 2013, Disneyland announced the retirement of the band to the outrage of many fans.

On Jan. 6, 2014, the show closed and now the band changed its name to Kirk Wall and the Hillbillies "in order to perform at outside venues without confusing our guests," the band said on its website.
