Brevard Busking Coalition have created their own genre of music: Hyperbolic Supersonic Urban Folk
"Between the six members they play over 30 instruments, and what a racket! Strains of Frank Zappa meet XTC, or perhaps the Holy Modal Rounders playing Tejano music, it's all there." -- James Mann, Ink 19
“Try and imagine Frank Zappa & Les Claypool hanging in a tribal drum circle being recorded for a National Geographic Special at Bonnaroo.” – John Leach, Brevard Live.
"You guys sound like Tom Waits and They Might Be Giants fighting over a girl." -- Some drunk guy, Indialantic
"I'll have whatever the band is having!" -- His girlfriend, Indialantic
Take six multi-instrumentalists/singers and lock them in a music store over Memorial Day weekend with no electricity and plenty of fluids. When you return, you'll find a giant pile of abandoned instruments: banjo, bass, guitars, mandolin, melodion, ukulele, didgeridoo, kazoo, singing bowl, big bass drum, bongos, cajon, djembe, doumbek, frame drum, kit, ramwong, talking drum, udu, agogo bells, cowbell, cymbals, flexitone, frog, goat hooves, guiro, klaves, metals, shakers, triangle, vibraslap, and more. Cripes, it'll take weeks to sort this out. No sign of the band, they seem to have sublimated into the musical aetherspheres. Or maybe they were lurking by the door and took their chance to escape behind your back while you were distracted. Better get a broom.
Melbourne Art Fest, Sebastian Riverfront Art and Music Fest, Eau Gallie Fine Arts Fest, Paralounge Drum Gathering, Jerry Daze Music Festival, Baskets of Bounty Music Fest, and many many boutique bars, street corners, and other fine establishments.
