Artist of the day: Beebs and Her Money Makers
(It's Tropical Heatwave week! All week we'll be spotlighting some of the Florida artists performing at this year's WMNF Tropical Heatwave on Saturday. Today: Beebs and Her Money Makers.)
Former Miami resident Rachel Goodrich did pretty well for herself playing the kazoo. Maybe Orlando’s Beebs and Her Money Makers can follow suit.
The fun-loving group has been working to establish itself as one of Orlando’s leading party bands, with a sound that veers from pop to ska to blues to funk to R&B. They’ve played with artists like Dumpstaphunk, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Perpetual Groove and more. Not only are they working on their first full-length album, due later this year, they’re also plotting a comic book about their superhero alter egos. One look at their wildly colorful onstage getups, and a comic book starts to make sense.
On Saturday at Tropical Heatwave, Beebs and Her Money Makers will perform from 7:20 to 8:20 p.m. at the Cuban Club ballroom. Click here for a full Heatwave schedule.
