Rivera Beach by guitarman on Sep 27, 2008
:guitar: Living out of my car, I was 26 on Rivera Beach in Florida. I was already hot in more ways than one. The police had already noticed me hanging out with my guitar and knew I was meeting girls and getting laid. Once, a cop came up on us knowing something was going on but found no evidence. It was inside my closed guitar case. Then, a jamming buddy made a sign and we crossed the street to an alcove between 2 restaurants. The sign read "Donations gladly accepted for munchies and strings". We made $12 and took off for much greener pastures down in the French Quarter.

RE: trouble with the law by Candi on Jul 1, 2013
I'm afraid Officer Friendly has it backwards. The burden of proof always resides with the Plaintiff, in this case the city. They would have to prove you actively solicited money. This would be impossible if it never happened. They would also need witnesses. Just accepting...

RE: income by hairy on Mar 22, 2012
I think you're missing the point of busking. It's to perform an ART for tips. This takes TALENT. If you're just into $, stick with begging, go to school, become a lawyer, and make a few million $.
