I used to busk in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts back in the early 70s with a Bluegrass band called, "The Beantown Rhythm Boys". It was a lot of fun. I've been thinking it would be fun to busk again. Hoping that Street Jelly will be that place.
While using a wireless transmitter on my violin in a crowded nightclub, one night I decided to run through the crowd while playing a fast tune. When I rounded a corner, there was a chair in front of me that I hadn't seen. I jumped up on it, but it went over dropping me to the floor like a rock. I only stopped playing for a measure or two... stumbled to my feet, and limped back to the stage with a bloody knee finishing the tune as I went. The band was doubled over in laughter.
I have several violins... standard, five string, six string, seven string, chin cello. They are all special to me. None have names.
