...opens busker festival at 8th & Mass St.
Sometimes your that bat...& sometimes your the ball, as my friend Pewamo likes to say.
This weekend I get to participate in the first annual Lawrence Busker Festival. Along with my band, Zydeco Tougeau, we did not have to travel a long ways to participate, but it was fun & Educational.
The thing I really like about performing on the street is the close contact with the "audience", who often become part, or the main attraction, of the show. This is really true of little kids...
When we can get one or more cute little kids dancing on the sidewalk, they become the "main attraction" & we become the accompanyment,,,,, which is fine with me.
Also, it's fun to get people who are on their way somewhere else, to stop, & listen & sometime dance, or smile or laugh.
We like to play every Friday evening, weather permitting, but this weekend we got to be part of a much larger event. Here's some photos & story....
