Amazingly Creative Street Musician

The lady and I were in Notting Hill today when we  spotted this highly creative street musician performing on the side of the road. If the video isn’t clear enough, he’s playing on a tennis racket, an old typewriter and a cutlery set – Yes, you read that correctly. The song, “Hit the road Jack,” was written and first recorded in 1960 by rhythm and bluesman Percy Mayfield. The song reached a wider audience and international fame after it was recorded by Ray Charles in 1961. I hope you can agree that Mayfield and Charles both would have approved of this busker’s innovative take on the song.

    That’s not just a tennis racket. That’s a wooden tennis racket! Oh what we gave up for a slightly faster serve by switching from wood to metal. HOpe you left the guy a couple pounds. He’s awesome.
