The street musicians are becoming more regular outside our windows and around town. I’ve already witnessed some great performers. I recorded a high-energy, talented jazz combo one day down by the marina. The video is very large; one of these days I’ll load it and share it. In the meantime, I’ve decided to share a couple of very brief clips. No need to thank me now. After you hear them, you probably won’t want to.
This first performer actually has quite a voice. But he reminded me of some of the lounge acts I witnessed in places like Palm Springs, California. He puts his “lounge” on the back of his scooter and walks the paseo in the evening.

Oh, Bring Back My Bonnie [Raitt] to Me
As for the next guy, who arrived moments after Loungeless Act departed, he pretended to play “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean.” I was tempted to toss him money from the terrace if he would simply go across the sea to find his Bonnie instead of waiting around for someone to bring her back. But the next time I see him, I’ll give him something as a thank-you for the video clip and photo. At the very end of the brief clip, you can hear the best of what this guy had to offer. And that’s all I’m saying.
