This guy is performing at the 86th St Subway Station in New York. He’s singing “Someone Like You” by Adele (quite wonderfully, I might add) while playing the djembe.
This guy’s a regular in this subway station. Once I heard him sing Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight“.
Here’s a spontaneous subway performance someone sent to me. I love seeing things like this!
EDIT: It turns out this video was taken by a singer in New York named Jessica Latshaw. You can find her blog here!
Anybody see any buskers in the cars of the New York Subway? Well, this past Holiday Season was a big one for them!
Several New York buskers have been raking in the dough this season, with some making as much as $50 an hour. Usually it’s drunks and yuppies that give the most money, and the Holiday Season is the best time to find people like that on the subway!
It is legal to perform music on the train, but if you are impeding passengers and asking for money, the MTA or NYPD can charge you. Still, there is no shortage of brave buskers gracing passengers with their music.
