wouldn't it be nice if we had this standard of busker in our midst?

Great stuff.  :thumbs:

We do have quality buskers - I doubt in the same quantity as Europe, but quality nonetheless. Busking has never really been popular locally though. More single show/performers at smaller venues.

Try some Lonesome Dave Ferguson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlZAxUG8H9E

We also had (now emigrated to Ireland) Rob Taylor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1YXetHfDmo - an old school mate. Went to hundreds of his performances over the years. Used to play a lot of pubs and small venues. Quality bloke who makes quality music.

Very cool!

I had an elderly gentleman in my shop the other day... Came in looking for a balanced cable he lost to attach a mic to his power speaker.  I couldn't help him (not our industry) but he did tell me all about what it was for. He will be busking... not because he needed to (he was reasonably well off and retired), but because he was BORED.  ;D

Same with my nephew a few years back - he played the violin for the east rand youth orchestra. Some weekends he and some fellows would park outside a local shopping centre, with parents sitting in a nearby coffee shop. Made some good pocket money  :thumbs:

Seen a few good buskers over the years but few can beat this batch

I saw them at the Hackescher Hof S-Bahn just before they got signed.  The arches had good acoustics it seemed.  They’ve played all over Berlin and elsewhere as a busking band
