Buskers can now let the world know they're a street-performer by wearing their hat on their t-shirt. You can even add a face if you wish.

There's an old busker saying - "A busker isn't complete without his hat. Then, he's finished."

Also featured are "suit & tie" tees and even the Professional Street Performers Association's logo on all kinds of shirts, tote bags, buttons, drinking cups, stickers, posters, and even hats.

Let the public know you're a pro!

You can even create your own logos on apparel for other buskers and street-performers to enjoy. Artists will relish designing their own shirts. Check out the links below for even more busker t-shirt...

The pianos are found in the middle of the street with buskers and street performers along the sidewalks. The painted pianos were donated from Craig's List and part of the program "Your Keys to the City" creating unique "useable art" for citizens to enjoy.

"We start the first week noting that 5.6 million people ride the subway each day which makes it not only a hot spot for talent scouting and people watching, but also a snow-globe of sorts for some of the strangest behavior in the city".

Busker #1 is a cigarette smoking man underneath a train (don't ask). Then he jumps up and performs balancing and dare-devil stunts in-between cars. With cigarette in hand, he finishes by tap-dancing across the platform and away from the encroaching NYPD. The busker...
