I'm in brisbane so i can busk pretty much anywhere without a permit except two popular malls.
Actually come to think one of my brothers has a small bluetooth speaker do you think that'd be enough?Hi. Welcome. hope you get a chance to respond to your responses. Many post, leave a single question and the forum waits unfruitfully for feedback.
It's a tough gig having no BT's but doable and actually less painful than toting a heavy Bluetooth speaker round town for sure .
Like others have said get your set pinned down and assess what numbers are ok without accompaniment. For example you probably don't want to do baker street , or careless whisper but perhaps Big Spender, Benny hill, Pink panther blah also folk type songs could be ok. Try them.
You are not giving much info on horn.
I saw a dude last summer with a drum style Bluetooth speaker slung round his shoulder and his wee curly soprano and I thought "clever boy". I may try that instead of the 100 watts on a trolley and 10m in Backpack gig bag.
Invest your tips in a speaker. You will be able to play better , probably ( make a more musical) performance and for longer.
Look forward to hearing back from you.
Hi here's a link to the kinda thing the guy was using with his soprano. If it were me I would want to be able to swap out the rechargeable battery to increase my time out there. 2.5 hours was my last set and I was doing that 3 nights a week in 2017 using 100watt speaker and an external motorcycle battery.Actually come to think one of my brothers has a small bluetooth speaker do you think that'd be enough?
Is it? When did that happen? Back in the day Swampthings (my busking band) usually had a hatter- frequently my wife or we occasionally had a guitar, bass and drums track which freed me up to go and hat the crowd.......Sorry Randy but having a collector or bottler is illegal in uk and may get you arrested.
Out of date. The union protested councils requiring street entertainers to have a licence. Private property has its own rules.From what I understand in searching in the UK is that it's entirely dependent on the local counsel.
You may need a busking licence or permit from the council before busking in that area. Find out the council's rules on busking and apply online.www.gov.uk
