Mark Mayville's insight:

I think this would be a much better alternative for someone who really does have the goods. It would save the hassle and expense of going to these live auditions where the vast majority are not going to be selected anyway. If someone really does have the sort of talent that these producers are looking for, they will be found.

Street performance or busking

Street performance or busking is the practice of performing in public places, for gratuities, which are generally in the form of money and edibles. People engaging in this practice are called street performers, buskers, street musicians, minstrels, or troubadours.

Street performance dates back to antiquity, and occurs all over the world.

Performances can be just about anything that people find entertaining. Performers may do acrobatics, animal tricks, balloon twisting, card tricks, caricatures, clowning, comedy, contortions, escapology, dance, singing, fire skills, flea circus, fortune-telling, juggling, magic, mime, living_statue, musical performance, puppeteering, snake charming, storytelling or reciting poetry or prose, street art such as sketching and painting, street theatre, sword swallowing.

Street performance or busking is the practice of performing in public places, for gratuities, which are generally in the form of money and edibles. People engaging in this practice are called street performers, buskers, street musicians, minstrels, or troubadours.

Street performance dates back to antiquity, and occurs all over the world. Performances can be just about anything that people find entertaining.

There have been performances in public places for gratuities in every major culture in the world, dating back to antiquity. This art form was the most common means of employment for entertainers before the advent of recording and personal electronics.

The word "busk" comes from the Spanish root word "buscar", meaning "to seek" – buskers are literally seeking fame and fortune. The Spanish word "buscar" in turn evolved from the Indo-European word *"bhudh-skō" (to win, conquer) via the Celtic word "boudi-" (victory).

In medieval France buskers were knonw as troubadours and jongleurs. In northern France they were known as trouveres. In old German buskers were known as Minnesingers and Spielleute.

Mariachis are Mexican street bands that play a specific style of music by the same name .... [and] busk when they perform while traveling through streets and plazas, as well as in restaurants and bars.

Hoagy Carmichael: 'Stardust Melodies' : NPR

Hoagy Carmichael: 'Stardust Melodies' : NPR | music theory | Scoop.it
With a laid-back, familiar style, the composer, pianist and singer created popular hits for decades — and logged numerous entries into the great American songbook. When asked about his tuneful gift, he credited his early roots in jazz.
Mark Mayville's insight:

I actually play a couple of Hoagy Carmichael songs, and they are indeed very beautiful songs. Stardust is quite unusual in that it has a different kind of pattern, and has wider leaps between notes than most songs you hear. It is still a beautiful song that works very well with the underlying harmony.

This is the amp I got on ebay for less that $100. I use it all the time now when I go busking because I can plug my tracks into the back, and play over them. I'ts like an ultra mini PA system that runs on AA batteries, and can be taken anywhere. It sounds great!!! I like this video because this guy demos everything plus he play some very tasty licks while doing it.
