I'm a busker in the United States. Dayton, Ohio, to be exact. Dayton has suffered great tragedy in the past few months. But WE'RE STRONG! Making music and bringing spirits UP on the very streets where tragedy took an essential part of a community's healing, I believe. Keep up the good work you're doing in order to keep busking legal. Remember...Buskers WORK! Sincerely yours, Martin Alexander/ A Guy And A Guitar

Hey - support and love your work - thanks! I'm a rockie - but want to kickstart my music career somehow - and busking seems like a very nice option - especially in the good places - would love to get more info and get to know other buskers also. :-)
