Mosman bans buskers by BC on Dec 28, 2008
:tied: BUSKERS, charities, democratic protests and even raffle collectors have been banned from the streets of one of Sydney's most affluent suburbs.

The harsh rule of law has come to the mean streets of Mosman, where the council has banned any activity on land owned by the council that has not been given special council authorisation.

The policy was created after complaints about pesky charity collectors on Military Rd at Mosman Junction and Spit Junction.

However, not everyone in the district feels the need for protection from such undesirables. Shirley Jenkins, a former councillor who voted against the ban, said: "We're starting to take the zest out of life.

"I don't know how many buskers we have in Mosman but I enjoy those around Circular Quay and the thing is that Mosman is boring if we don't have some of these things."

Man jailed for stealing busker's hat by BC on Dec 27, 2010
:hot: (ENGLAND) Busker and supply teacher Phil Gray was happily busking away when a passerby casually took the hat off Gray's head and disappeared.

It all seemed to be a joke until the grim reality set in. The hat was gone - never to be returned.

Fortunately, an audience member was shooting a video with his cell phone of Gray performing when the incident occurred.

Gray claims the creep who stole his hat had talked with him several times earlier in the day.

In the video, you actually see the crime committed. The thief was later picked up but no hat was to be found.

Jim & Bob Entertainment by jimcozzi on Feb 27, 2011
I am a bird handler & entertainer from Key West and Orlando area. I am relocating to the Atlanta area and interested in coordinating buskers in Atlanta. I do numerous pro-bono charity events like: Hospice, Make-A-Wish, Give Kids The World Resort, and Muscular Dystrophy camp.

I have also appeared on television like NBC Today Show, HGTV, Food Network and appeared as the official entertainer for Jimmy Buffet's Meeting of The Minds-Parrot Heads Fan Club convention with over 3,000 people in attendance.

If you live in Atlanta or know any buskers there, please have them contact me. If you could refer me or need to add a tropical themed act, I would greatly appreciate referrals.

How to be a Tube Busker in London by BC on Feb 1, 2014
:therapy: (LONDON) It seems there simply aren't enough buskers in London's tube these days to satisfy the growing masses.

Also known as the underground subway, a clear and present message to the "powers that be" is rumbling around the tube. Buskers believe many more should be permitted to display their art form in the nation's capital.

As it turns out, you can now take a quick internet lesson on How to be a Tube Busker with a recent article at the Londonist.com.

There's only one thing standing in the way - "the system". Tube busking has now been legal for 10 years. The article goes into a step-by-step process that may, in the end, prove the licensing procedure to be entirely futile.

You will be judged by a 3-person jury that may or may not be qualified to determine what is art and what...
