1. You have a voice you could earn a living with. Why are you standing at the mall in shorts?
2. Find something to do with those flailing arms before you hurt someone - tambourine, maracas, etc. You just look awkward otherwise.
3. If you like doing this type of thing, as opposed to getting a spot doing real musical theatre, etc, at least get you and your partner some fancy threads, so people can be at ease that this is a genuine spectacle and that the finale doesn't involve frontal nudity, machetes, or feces flinging.
Just some ideas off the cuff. But very good!
Hello! Firstly thanks for your reply! It really made me chuckle!
I've heard musical theatre is INCREDIBLE monotonous! Plus I'm no actor.
The main project i have is Mayqueen and we will have played around 40 concerts by the end of this year. not bad for a band in its second year. http://www.mayqueen.de/ontour.php?lang=
and my second project is this "The Royal Squeeze Box" with which we will have played 20 odd concerts with before this year is over.
We're standing in the street because we decided to take part in a Street Music Festival (which it says in the Video Info albeit in German, Strassenmusikfest)where we performed in various placed around Osnabrueck, made some friends,a decent amount of cash (from busking), won a cash prize for our performances, and got two concert bookings. All in all, well worth having a sing song in the street on a sat afternoon for!?
Maybe you right about my arms? although i always think just bashing a tambourine shows a lack of imagination.
You're right about the threads... but we went there out of fun just to busk a bit. however i think Roman (Accordion) looks brilliant! Lets face it, its quite a challenge to look Rock and Roll whilst holding a Squeezebox! I think he looks the part with those shades!
Anyway, we started the project on the street to see how the people react to queen played on the accordion, and they seem to like it. since then we've found to agents and are getting regular concert. We started playing on the streets of Dortmund and within a year have played our way into performing at Dortmund Football Stadium (we should have a video from that performance soon- will post it here) I have so much fun and earn a good living doing this. Why would i want musical theater?
