Melbourne Busking (street performing)


Senior Member
Hey everyone,
Here are two clips of me playing the buckets in Melbourne Australia. I did this to make money because I didn't really have any while I was there. I was able to make enough for food and anything I really needed. I would go out on a friday or saturday night, busk all night and come out with at least a hundo after three or four hours. It was insane! I loved it. I had too much fun. I met the greatest people. Hope you enjoy. I had some other links to videos of me with my jazz trio, but I took them down because the sound quality was so pour, but you can still find them on my you tube channel if you're interested. Thanks.

Love the panda moment, nice groove too. Can't help you on the bucket drumming, never tried it. Looks like fun though.

Thanks. It's heaps of fun. The best part are the people,usually drunk, who start dancing, which is great for me, because I get to look at beautiful women wearing next to nothing dancing right in front of me, to my beat. It's pretty sweet. I had the best times doing this. If you're ever in another country, and have no money, being a drummer will always help you out. Just grab two branches, get a couple of objects, and start banging away, and you're guaranteed to make a couple of bucks, if at least for your effort. (There's always a few sympathy dollars)
