I imagine it must be very rewarding to be playing music on the beach. with all the babes walking by and the people dancing to the rhythm you provide — it must be a little invigorating. you create music and do some covers. you demonstrate your personality and others like it. you do a little dance and walk around with your instruments and you energize your viewers. you have to be creative and come up with silly comments and remarks and lovely words and music to make them stay for a while and keep them coming back.
i imagine you must go crazy when all this energy and creativity is pouring out and you have no audience to share it with.
but …. at least you have a bucket with a few dollars, the sun is shining and you can walk on the sand and wet your feet and it’s a beautiful day. :)
