    Props for the unusual instruments, but I found myself cringing every time the girl opened her mouth.

    They were good, but like Cy, I cringed when the girl opened her mouth.
    I`d drop a toonie for them if I were there. They seemed pretty good with their instruments, but then again, I know nothing about music.

    I don`t know, to me it sounded more like it was just an unfortunate matter of her pitch maybe not going well with the camera mic. It could have been fine live... Who knows.

    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...

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

    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.

    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.

    Cut the girl some slack. Her name`s Kelsea Little. And the band here is The Wrong Trousers. They`re awesome. You should check them out. :)

    That was excellent. All you losers that are not brave enough to perform and just whine about others... can... if you can`t say something nice do not say nothing at all instead of letting these annoying gas bubbles from your mouth.

    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.

    "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.

    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 :-(
