Hi there guys just to let you know did my first time out on the streets in Auckland, New Zealand. It was not my first time busking as I did some back in the UK in London. I did suffer from getting the confidence to go out and procrastinated a bit.

But I hit the streets to day and had a good one hope to build from here and be hot as for the rugby world cup.

Thanks to all that have helped and no doubt will carry on.

G'day Yellowcustard
Good to see you are back out there.
Are you doing the same show from before or a new approach????

Hey Yellow Custard, where did you play? Vulcan Lane ?
Devonport is also good at weekends and Takapuna market Sunday mornings is a good earner,

Hey Yellowcard,
If your coming to OZ and Adelaide let me know. I was living in Brixton London, years ago and took my first 'tour' to NZ andOZ starting off with the Aukland Busker festival. It was a big jump for me, comfort zone was pushed and a great time was had. In great part by hooking up with Nick( hi Nick).
Life has never been the same.
Have a great one and let us know how's it going.

First up I did a similar thing as back in London. Which is Diablo’s to catch attention then some close up magic to a small crowd. I found the foot fall a bit lighter than London yet people still gave quite nicely. Also I think that people are lees exposed to stuff I do over here so I was a bit of a novelty.

Nice spot advice nick nickolas Do you need a licance for Takapuna market.

Hi James James I don’t know if you rember but I spoke to you on the south bank once I used to do Diablo’s and hang out with Pete the dog.
I plan to carry on with this as it seems to work. Yet I think I need to get a tight 10-15 minute set of 3 to 4 effects and just keep doing back to back shows for small crowds. It is also the rugby world cup soon so be interesting to see what happens.

Ill keep you posted.

Alan, it sounds like you're having loads of fun mate! Plese keep us posted as to your experiences...
I prefer also to limit my sets to 10-15 minutes.

Wish I could remember. I do know Pete the dog though. The South Bank brings back so many memories. Lots of great ones.
