The Buskers are Back!

Real Estate Agent with Retired CA BRE# 01048160

The Buskers are back in San Diego this weekend. What is a Busker? Well it is a term assigned to street entertainers. Have you ever heard of Cirque du Soliel? Well, they started out as street entertainers, stilt walkers. Look at them now, some of the most athletic and artistic shows on the planet. Bet you wish you could just throw a buck in the box to see them entertain. Actually you will need to fork over about a hundred of those bucks per person for their amazing artistry and acrobatic performances and after the show it will seem like a bargain at the price. 

 Buskers at Seaport Village

This young guy has amazing balance and strength and performs as though it is effortless. He is also part of a team of performers that do other amazing and skillful balancing acts.

Each year in the early Spring, the Buskers are back in San Diego for two days of performances at Seaport Village on the San Diego Bay. The cost? a few dollars in tips. What do you get for the money, entertainment and an education in what the human body can do with years of training and discipline.

So if you are of a mind to be impressed, come on out to see things that will impress you for the talent, artistry and sheer strength. Sounds like I just described Cirque du Soliel. Well many of their performers started out in these very same type Busker festivals. And now you know what Buskers are.

William - See that guy doing his contortions on the ground?  I haven't been able to do that for about 20 years; but I admire those who still can!

I used to see a lot of these guys when I lived in Chicago.  I really saw some amazing talents there at times.  I did not however, know that they were in fact Buskers.  So once again, I learned something new in the rain.

These buskers must be fun to watch.  I love Cirque du Soleil and didn't realize that's how it started out.

The Buskers should be good topics for a series of blog.  Looks like you need to be doing videos.

Hi William,

I too have never heard the term buskers but it is a cool word anyway. Looks like they have an audience and the crowds must enjoy them too. Thanks for sharing. (AR wordcheck knows it is a word)

Having grown up in England, William, I was used to seeing buskers on the London street corners. Nice to see it happening here too. Buskers is an English term.

William, my sense of appreciation in their physicality is enormous.  I didn't know they were called Buskers but I will be on the lookout for them to bring the talent here.  Remarkable!

I have not heard of that word buskers before but I'm glad I learned it from you today! Coincidentally, while waiting for the traffic light to change at a busy intersection in Flower Mound yesterday, there were several buskers entertaining the people stuck in traffic. As it turns out a group of teenage boys were throwing some gymnasts up in the air and the girls were doing flips and tricks in mid air. Every time a girl did that I thought to myself..... ooh, ahh.... if that was my girl I'd kill her for doing that without a net!

WOW! Amazing that these entertainers are displaying their art form through body movement to the extreme. I'd break a few bones and strain a few many muscles lol

Hi William,

That guy must be incredibly strong.  I can't imagine being able to do that.   Thank you for teaching me a new word, "busker"   The buskers sound very entertaining.
