Awesome. And may I point out, PunkGirl123, that it wasn`t a guitar. The girl`s weird orgasm didn`t turn me on at all which was quite disappointing :-(

"That`s a banjo, a cello, and a harp."

Uh...it`s a MANDOLIN, a DOUBLE BASS, and a harp. Smart one. If you`re gonna try to sound smart at least know what you`re talking about.

The guy with the mandolin reminded me of Andy Milonakis. The kid with the big stand-up bass was funny because it was bigger than him. and the girl with the harp couldn`t sing to save her life. over al it was pretty good.

Yeah. Balboa Park, SD! I have seen and heard dozens of great groups and individuals there over the years. None are completely lame (unlike Fishermans Wharf in SF) A few years ago there was a guy that didn`t even speak alot of english, I think he was Romanian or Serb. He could sound like ANYONE. I`m serious, this guy had learned from listening to recordings and could sound like acoustic Tesla, Don Henley or anyone. He did "American Pie" by Don McClean (the long version) and never missed. Sounded Just like the original! My hat is off too all the minstrals, street musicians and bards in our country. It beats the hell out of the canned BS you get on the FM.

Everybody seems to be forgetting the "oh, oh" in the original song was/is pretty annoying too. But I will agree that the double bass and harp were tough to hear; the mandolin really overwhelmed everything else.

You got "harp" right. The "cello" is a double bass, and the "banjo"...I`m not sure, but it sounds like a mandolin.

That`s not really unusual, but not common to use in a street performance.

I`m tired of people hating this girl. They have some decently recorded songs on their myspace (...om/thewrongtrousers) in which she demonstrates her ability to utter more than an orgasmic screech.

`The fat guy he really does it casual. BUT OH MY GOD THAT CHICK, she makes me want to erase the entire female species. It`s that Paris Hilton feeling.`

She did suck balls but why blame all females for her existance? Maybe her mum just had an accident? Christ. Jerk.

wow that was awesome, he`s a really good singer. She, however, seemed to be forcing just a little `oh-ah-oh` which is not too hard at all to do, she was cool on the harp tho

Not that good. You could hardly hear the harp or cello (double bass?) over the electric mini-guitar. And the singing was terrible... not just the girl.

I was in a chess club and made a fair amount of cash doing it, so well, drat you.

I think 10-string guitar drat could take lessons from these three. You know, lessons on how not to suck.

i wonder what leads someone to learn to play the harp. wow im normally the "hater" according to some guy who`s name i dont remember off hand. i would rather listen to that then all the generic good cookie cutter singers with nothing unique in ther voice like ashanti. is that how ashanti is spelled? they can sing well enuf but they all sound the same. i cant tell most of the young black female singers apart. same with all the white male "singer song writer" losers. generic cookie cutter singers...

I`m not in chess club, but that was a very lame attempt at making a shot at people who are.
