Yehaa Bob No Longer Performing at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort

Share This!

Fan-favorite, Yehaa Bob Jackson will no longer be playing his boogie woogie piano and calling out to Guests via his trumpet at who the River Roost Lounge at at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort.

The popular Walt Disney World performer announced on his Facebook page today that Disney had let him go. In the post, Yehaa Bob stated:

And that’s how it ends, not with a bang but a whimper. I’ve just learned that my act will not be returning to Disney. I made so many friends of the last 23 years, it was a great time, we had a lot of laughs together. I’ll be continuing my Sunday shows for now. I’ll keep you posted, I’m still digesting all of this-

 

For those who never caught Bob’s show, he performed Wednesday through Saturday nights, and involved the crowd in a comedy, musical, sing-a-long experience. Yehaa Bob performed twice per night and the show was so popular that every seat was typically full well before showtime.

Perhaps most impressive though, (which is saying something because his musical talent was impressive) was Bob’s memory which he displays by recalling the names and places of residence of the audience members he speaks to prior to the show. (And trust me….he would keep calling on you, all night!)

Right now, as Bob stated in his posts, Guests can catch him performing live on his Facebook page on Sunday evenings. So, for those who would like to catch some of the fun that was had at lounge, you can get a glimpse of it there.

No matter what, your hair will still look great Bob!

    I felt a great disturbance in the World, as if thousands of drunken singalong fans suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

    Seriously though. I hope some other venue owner in the area understands the value of the Yeehaa Bob community and offers him a similar gig. I’m more than willing to go off property to see him.
    In fact, as Disney management kills off the live performances that make the place magic (as opposed to the Magic(TM) sold in stores), I’m less likely to extend my stay at a resort past my park days. I often stayed an extra night to make sure I could catch one of his shows. Won’t be doing that again, and I doubt I’m alone.

    28, 000 Disney theme park employees laid off. It’s over for the foreseeable future. Cherish your memories. 2020 + 45 = 0

    They’ll keep one and multiply him digitally, like the Oompa Loompas in the Willy Wonka remake.

    Loved his show…..this is so sad. First, the Grand Floridian Orchestra and now Yeeha Bob. I’m afraid to ask what is next
