:sax: (CLEVELAND) Maurice Reedus, Jr. is one happy man since Cleveland has opened it's streets to buskers and street-performers.

Thanks to the "Sax Man" legislation, he can now blow his horn legally on the streets of Cleveland after twice being arrested this year.

"Let Freedom ring!" declared Cleveland City Councilman Joe Cimperman once the legislation was passed. "All of the major cities have lots of street performers. This is the home of the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame. This should be a musical town."

Officially, the Street-Performer's Ordinance covers, but is not limited to, "acting, singing, playing musical instruments, pantomime, juggling, magic, dancing, reciting and clowning."

Reedus is also the subject of a new movie. While everyone knows of the iconic Sax Man, few know his truly fascinating story. The Sax Man Documentary will debut January, 2014.

In St. Louis, a District Court judge ruled Tuesday that street performers do not need to audition or purchase a license to perform. The city has been regulating street performers since 1997. Last year, it upped the permit fee from $25 to $100 dollars insisting the increase is needed to cover the cost of inspectors checking for permits. It was this ridiculous notion which led buskers and street-performers to contact the ACLU.
