We are Family – Sister Sledge 4 weeks ago
Tonight, Augusta and I went to a coffee shop downtown for the ukulele club. However, they only meet once a month and tonight was not the night. So, we had a couple of hours to kill before we met our friends at the Bob show.
So, Augusta said, “Wanna go busk?” (Ha ha. I only made up my goal list the day before yesterday. That was fast!)
“Yeah, I wanna busk.” So, we did. The first time for both of us and we made $9.05. We procured a fan named Paul and we met some other nice folks as well.
We realized that folks like hits. Most of the money came our way when we did “You’re So Vain”. We’ll do it again, yeah. It was motivating and fun. Augusta is great to play and sing with; she has great energy, harmonizes like a dream and our voices are pretty together.
This goal – like many of my current goals – is not a one-off; I want to make busking a regular part of my musical development process. 9 months ago
