  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) June 26, 2013 - One of Orlando's favorite bands is rocking the Vans Warped Tour in style this summer, thanks to an unusual new sponsor.

    Ripley's Believe It or Not! Orlando is sponsoring "Beebs and Her Money Makers" on behalf of all Ripley's locations in the U.S. and Canada.

    Beebs and Her Money Makers blend psychedelic rock, funk, ska and soul into a high energy performance. Led by the kazoo-wielding Michelle Beebs, the band has played to sold-out shows across the U.S. since releasing their first album, "Welcome to Bartertown," two years ago. Their new album, "No Sleep Tonight" was released on May 30 and the new single "Jumpin" has crowds, well, jumpin'.

    The Vans Warped Tour, which launched this month and runs through August 4, will take the band to several cities that are home to Ripley's attractions, including San Francisco, Orlando, Dallas and San Antonio, as well as venues close to Ripley's attractions in Hollywood, Niagara Falls, Baltimore, Ocean City, Atlantic City, Times Square and Wisconsin Dells.

    Ripley's has wrapped the band's tour bus (the BAHMM Mobile), so fans will notice its "unbelievable" look. The bands' merchandise and tents will also have a Ripley's look to them. Discount cards will be handed out at the concert venues, allowing guests half off admission to participating Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditoriums. The band also shot the music video for "Jumpin" at Ripley's Orlando Odditorium.

    "We think our visitors and Beebs fans have a lot in common," said Joe Kasinski, Director of Sales and Marketing for Ripley's Orlando. "They all know how to have fun and are into things that are out of the ordinary. It's a perfect partnership for us as well as the band."

    Ripley's Orlando Odditorium is located at 8201 International Drive.
