  • Okay. It's That Time Again



    Slays me how this guy should command an audience but instead he gets malled.

    Crowds are over at the DJ table listening to synthetic drums and electronic handclaps and some idiot telling them to "put their hands in the air".
    Good Day. I said Good Day!

      Sad. He's quite talented and a natural entertainer. But several years ago I was watching an awards show or somesuch and people in the audience were talking and messing with cell phones while Tony Bennett was performing. If they'll do it to a living legend they'll do it to anyone.

          Yes. Rude and stupid. And very sad.

            The guy is really good. I have stumbled upon a lot of such incredible people playing on the street over the years and it is always a treat. I hope this guy finds success in whatever form it my take.

              This, for me, defines my taste in blues and this fellow makes me smile. He gives the blues a good chemistry.

                come to think of it i bet the sound wasn`t too good in what looks like a shopping mall with the glass roof and what not . we are getting the direct sound from the mics more than likely ,there is no way the public will have heard it like us , he is very good mind ,but still i am one of those who says you can do what you like and if someone is playing a guitar and singing that doesn`t mean to say i have to stop and listen. it makes me laugh when i hear band members complain about an audience for talking or appearing not to be listening to the band .

                  My kind of music and player. I would gladly pay a cover to hear him in a funky little dive and would probably buy his cd's.

                    And that is precisely why I play only in Open Mikes and never for money. The Open Mikes I go to always have respectful and supportive audiences who listen to and enjoy the music. I have turned down paying gigs and won't do open mikes in bars because I take no pleasure in providing a soundtrack for people's conversations.

                      I think it's a little judgy to say the people don't like or appreciate music just because they are going about there business in the mall. When I got to the mall it's a get in, get what I need and get out as quick as possible situation. I probably would have stopped and listened to him for a minute or two. There are a ton of videos out there of great famous musicians in disguise on subways and sidewalks with the same reaction. I doubt you would see the same reaction in a blues bar on a Friday night.

                      Well, of course it's "judgy". Life is judgy. At what point isn't it? You eat the Cheese-Wiz, then.

                        True my point was more that I don't think it's fair judgement in this case because the audience did not go their to see music.

                          Hell yeah, that was damn fine.

                          I check out a few of his other vids.

                          Good stuff.

                          Thx for turning me on to this guy.
