Busking in Brandenburg
Note: Busking, defined: “Street performance or busking is the practice of performing in public places, for gratuities, which are generally in the form of money and edibles.” We recently received this great story from Jake and Sarah, and their adventures in Busking with a Voyage-Air:
“For Voyage-Air Guitar:
“My name is Jake, and I have one of your guitars. I am currently traveling around Europe on a 500cc motorbike with my Voyage-Air guitar and my girlfriend Sarah.
“I am blown away by the quality and ergonomic design of the Voyage-Air guitar. It sits strapped on our topbox, with ratchet ties, and we have just spent all of yesterday busking outside the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.
“We’ve so far managed to fund our trip from Manchester to Berlin entirely from Busking and we can't thank you enough! My guitar plays beautifully, and has endured extremes of temperature and strapping down on the motorbike. We bought a waterproof cover for a backpacker to keep it dry. The only thing we can think that might improve the overall package would be a fitted waterproof cover to keep the case dry. Which we would be happy to test out for you, of course!”
A few days later, we received this e-Mail message from Sarah:
“After planning and saving for a while, Jake stumbled across Voyage-air Guitar on Google. He was looking for something travellable, that had a better sound quality than miniature travel guitars, and was overjoyed when he found Voyage-Air.
“The guitar is currently touring Prague with us and our motorbike.
“We have a funky set up, with Jake playing the guitar and singing (with a harmonica and kazoo to boot) and me playing a fruit box (like an irish boran), the spoons, mini maracas, ocarina and a penny whistle. With the novelty of the act and the fold away guitar we're attracting a lot of attention and photographs. We are funding the trip almost entirely with money made busking!
“We're planning on heading to Africa in the nearish future, and on to America if possible, but it all depends on how we do really!”
