Serenade in the city..



After a cold wet and windy weekend yesterday was the perfect spring day. In the city to check out 'this and that' I had an encounter of the delightful kind :) Walking along Hay St..  what was that I could hear?  An accordion, and a trumpet! Yes it was.. a one handed trumpet at that! One man band extraordinaire Reef was entertaining passers-by with a mix of French, Italian, South American music with a bit of Beatles thrown in for good luck. Naturellement I put in a request for something français, it was a lovely moment on a spring day in the city, merci beaucoup Monsieur Reef! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. doesn't the lady in the orange dress look amazing!

  3. The other way round here, Grace - wonderful weather on the weekend, now grey, cold and rainy... didn´t even go to the city today. Never heard of a one handed trumpet!

  4. How amazing he can play the trumpet with ONE hand. I cannot do it with two hands and doubt I would be any better with three.

  12. A trumpet in one hand and the other hand tickling the ivories, now that takes talent.

  13. How cool! We used to have a sidewalk musician in our area, but the store managers near where he always played got him thrown out of the plaza. :-(

  14. How fun! He must be very talented to be able to play like that.

  15. My infant nephew is called "Reef" as well.
    Another fun scene from the magic city, brought by the magic elf!
    Was that your stylish friend in orange?

  16. Street musicians can be great fun. Had friends who would play music on the streets of San Francisco. They never made much money, but enough to pay the rent. (They were also very talented playing mostly Blue Grass music.) That's a stylish lady in the orange dress.

  17. I never understand how people can play multiple instruments at one time. How do you compartmentalize your mind and muscles well enough to do that? (And, as you might imagine, I did immediately notice a potentially fine looking woman in orange at the edge of the photo.)

  18. Far better eye-hand coordination than I could muster.

    Women who orange dresses better know what they are doing.

  19. That takes so much work and talent. I always admire folks than can stick with something difficult long enough to become an expert.

  22. A multifunctional band by one man, great. The lady in orange seems to has come straight from the catwalk!

  23. A great character. Lovely fresh spring-green leaves too, and am envious of that orange dress Grace ;-)

  24. Talented man playing two instruments! Love that orange dress too.

  25. If only I had a tiny fraction of his musical talent.
