Meet The Jolly Pops

The Jolly Pops are a children’s music and entertainment group founded by me, Billy Hartong, aka "Mr. Billy."

We run programs for Preschool and Elementary aged children that include everything from Monthly Classes to the annual concert at your Spring Fair.


Our programs provide music, movement and fun learning through experience.  Our unique approach to rocking with the kids will leave your school or event with a one of a kind experience and great time to be had by all. 

I live with my wife, three daughters and French Bulldog on a lake in Chanhassen, MN.  I am also an assistant instructor at The MacPhail Center for Music serving in the Sing, Play, Learn Program for early childhood.

We are Happy Dads, We are Jolly Pops.

“The kids love to sing, dance and jump to The Jolly Pops music.  The lyrics are full of humor that kids not only understand, but seem to come from their very own day-to-day play ideas and experiences.”

- Emily Andrews, MS SEIT Preschool Specialist
