I was at the market yesterday and had the pleasure of watching one of the best buskers in the world. He was a living statue, his costume was incredible and he was hugely talented. I really enjoyed watching him and was excited to see that he had a video of his act on his website. I went onto his site and got the shock of my life; the video wasn’t there! Possibly he has removed it because it didn’t do him justice, but I think it would be great if he put another video up there that showed how good his act really is.

I am asking all buskers out there to make sure they have a video of their act online somewhere where people can see it. Youtube, Vimeo and Facebook are great places for this. If you don’t have your own website then these other services will work just as well. You can even create your own channel on Youtube where you can upload all your videos, which makes finding them easy for fans and those looking to hire you for an event or festival.

If you are a busker or artist of some kind and need help creating your very own website then let me know at info@recruitingbuskers.com

As a young student in the mid ’80s I would often spend my weekends visiting London’s Covent Garden with friends. It wasn’t unusual to see many of the world’s greatest buskers and street performers working there. The list included Thomas Frager, “The Living Statue”; Paul Burling; Johnny Mac and the Seamen; The Flying Rodleighs; The Bobby McGees; Michael Davis and other members of “The Covent Garden Jugglers”; and of course, many others.

I was fortunate enough to have been given a tape recording by Paul Burling of some of his work. This included a recording of the legendary routine that he did with Johnny Mac, who went on to be part of the famous Circus Oz production group. It featured an amazing act that combined juggling and mime with Johnny playing a large double bass and Paul as a slightly off-the-wall character wearing an overcoat and hat who proceeded to take everything out of his pockets.

He was one of the most engaging characters I’ve ever seen working the streets – whether in London or anywhere else – and had an incredible talent for getting huge amounts of money from the passers-by. He did this by entertaining them for about five minutes before getting around

This week, I want to share with you the most amazing busking act I’ve ever seen.

I first stumbled across this act in the line up for the 2009 Iowa City Jazz Festival. Now, if you live in or around the Midwest, you are probably aware that Iowa City is an absolutely fantastic place to see jazz. The festival itself is a great time and the line up is always top notch.

As I was walking through the festival grounds on my way down to see some music, another band caught my eye. There was a large crowd gathered around one of the side stages and these fellows were absolutely killing it! I got there just in time to see a guy on a unicycle balance himself on one foot while playing a cello…

Needless to say, this grabbed my attention.
