An amazing one man band performance
Thursday, 11 May 2017
An artist who performs at street level , to passers by and
Maybe a sitting down audience , usually for money . There
Are many types of buskers ,. There are , living statues ,street
Clowns , fire eaters , tango dancers ,puppet masters , jugglers ,
Magicians and there are street musicians . Like everything
Else in the entertainment business , there is a lot of good
Stuff and there is also , a lot of crap ... Personally I like
To draw a dividing line between street musicians and other
Street artists . A street artists motive is usually to entertain ,
Where as a street musician might be more concerned about
The quality of the music he projects , rather than the , passers by’s , reaction to it .... At the end of the day we are all buskers , though .
Busk entertain people in a public place , e.g.
playing music for money
He was using a combination of small, battery powered amplifiers and a digital drum machine , all blending in just right giving out a pretty neat equalized sound , it looked so impact and easy to carry , it was just perfect . He was doing late sixties, early seventies underground classics , you know the then cult things ,. Syd Barrett , traffic , spooky tooth and some early ´who` rarities , you know , the ´fuck me , I’ve heard that before thing .` This guy was good,this guy was original .
Get frustrated,get angry and even get depressed but don,t get bored,believe me it will show...
Make your work challenging,not impossible but challenging,leave enough room for to stretch yourself...Its better to be a musicians musician rather than a three chord wanderer bashing out recycled crap taken from a copy of 101 hits for buskers..Learn the tricky bits at home not on pitching ground...The street is where you preform,not where you sound check..
Protect your reputation,don,t stain your uniform..Before you step out make sure that everything is working,don,t jump out without a parachute..
