Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, PCB Odditorium!

Over the summer, we spent some time at our “home away from home”, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in PCB, FL!  Anytime you can go to FL and enjoy some beach time is always a good time, but when you’re able to combine work and play for a successful trip, well, I call that a win/win!  Prior to our 4 shows over 2 days in July, Captain made several media appearances on local television news and radio broadcasts, and especially had a blast with Flip & Streeter from The Gulf Coast Morning Show on Kick’n Country 103.5FM!  After each show, we managed to get in some book signing time with new fans and had high fives for everyone!  Miller Audio Visual, Inc. put together this fantastic video of some of our favorite stunts that you can watch right here!  You can also see it in the Odditorium Theater next time you’re in PCB, FL!

 

Gone is Gone, “Echolocation”

A couple months ago, we had the opportunity to work on this video for the supergroup, Gone is Gone.  What is a supergroup, you ask?  Well, it’s when members of already established successful bands come together to form a new group.  Members of Gone is Gone include Troy Sanders (Mastodon), Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age), Tony Hajjar (At the Drive-In) and Mike Zarin (multi instrumentalist composer and founder of Sencit Music). We also knew that Shane Morton (Silver Scream FX Lab) was involved with the project and once we heard the storyline, we knew it would be a cool video to work on.  Once we got on set, we knew it would be amazing, given how many of our close friends were present and ready to bring the story to life. Produced by Newmerica Media, we couldn’t be happier with the final product and we hope you enjoy it!

We recently had the pleasure of spending a couple days at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in sunny PCB, FL, over the summer!  We were excited to be there as the first issues of the newest RBION book, “Shatter Your Senses” hit Odditoriums.  Captain & Maybelle are a Ripley’s Exclusive Feature in the book and we enjoyed doing book signings for fans each day!  We met some great folks and made new friends!

The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny

16992040_1895568100689380_3224008541976496608_o

Created in 2014, with it’s inaugural run in 2015, The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny is the only large-scale gathering of sideshow performers, producers, and fans currently happening in the Southern United States. It takes place every year in late winter in the great city of New Orleans to offer our Northern brethren a break from dark, frigid days, as well as to give performers a chance to brush up on their skills and dust off and polish acts before the start of touring season.

This year we are honoring a legend among Showmen: Ward Hall
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6VX2GMU-Ik

The goals of The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny are:
*to celebrate the great American art form of sideshow
*to foster growth in the community and among individual performers through workshops, panels, peer review, and one-on-one consultations with some of the top performers and producers
*to educate the general public about sideshow, it’s history, and traditions
*to have a damn good time with some of the most entertaining folks you’ll ever meet!
