One of the nice things about my commute is the really good buskers at my stop, Montgomery.  We have three I like best.


  1. A middle aged man with a guitar who sings oldies with a voice like Freddy the Pig.  (For those of you who are illiterate, let me assure you this is not a slam.  Freddy had a “light, pleasing tenor.” ($1 at least once a week.)


  1. A young man cellist and woman violinist who play classical music.  ($5 every time)


  1. A jazz trio of three black older middle-aged men, the bassist/singer in dreads, a wild clarinet player and a staid drummer who seems, contrary to Moses’ opinion on drummers, to be the rhythm section.  ($1-2 every time.)

 There is also:

  1. An old old guy playing samisen.  ($1 to stop)
