How to become a Busker:

Attaining your license:

You must have a busking license to legally busk. Each city and town will have its own set of rules/regulations for attaining your license. To find them, you can usually go to the town hall or city hall website, or call the police department. Once you’ve done that, follow their directions and attain your license.

Some cities/towns also require that you take out a ‘performers insurance’. This is not mandatory in every place, but it’s very important. If someone gets injured because of your performance, you will be liable for their medical bills if you are not insured. It’s well worth the cost of the insurance, which you can get at most insurance companies (usually costing around $300-400 a year).

You may be a busker if you can answer yes to any of the following questions.

Are you interested in becoming a street performer?

Do you want to earn money using your artistic talents?

Are you tired of working for “the man” and earning minimum wage?

Do you love to perform for others, but hate auditioning?

Do you want to make money without going into debt for college?

If so, then you should consider busking. Buskers may have a variety of talents including juggling, playing an instrument, singing, dancing, acting, or doing magic tricks.

The UK has a long and interesting history with the art of busking which goes back to medieval times. The original word ‘busk’ comes from the Spanish ‘buscar,’ meaning ‘seek,’ or ‘search’ and it is generally thought that the word was brought to England by Spanish Gypsies who performed for money at marketplaces and fairs in order to get by.

The first recorded British busker was a man named Henry de Bracton in 1272. He was an itinerant harpist who travelled from town to town entertaining people in return for money, food or shelter.

The term ‘busk’ has been used ever since to refer to the practice of playing music on the street for money and its popularity has grown exponentially ever since. Many international artists such as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Ed Sheeran have all started their careers as buskers.

The time spent waiting in line at the office of consumer affairs can be spent wisely by making use of the public library, internet cafe or by writing your application on a computer. You can also make some extra cash by busking while you wait.

With that said, I’m going to talk about the different types of statue busking and how to do it correctly.

Statue Busking is where you dress up in a costume and pose as a statue. This type of busking requires some acting skill and ability to hold a pose for long periods of time.

The easiest way to get into statue busking is to buy a costume from an online retailer. The more detailed and life-like the costume is, the better it will look when you are standing still without moving.

The problem with being a busker is that it’s very difficult to make a living wage. The people who do make a living wage as buskers are usually doing something unusual. Take the guy in Union Square who dresses up like a statue and then comes to life if you put money in his box. Putting on a costume isn’t enough. You have to do something that will actually get people to stop and pay attention, and ideally something that they can’t see somewhere else.

Busking isn’t so different from starting a company, at least not the kind of company I’ve been involved with. Paul Graham has said: “If you want to start an startup, you should just start one.” To which I would add: “If you want to make a living as a busker, you should just do it.” But not just any way. Instead of trying to be the best at some skill, try instead to be the only one who does what you do. This is exactly what Paul Graham means when he says: “To do great things you need time, and as we have seen, most founders don’t start working truly great until they’ve tried several ideas.” And it’s also why so many startups fail: they try to be good at something rather than
