My drummer and singer are interested in starting a side project. The singer is female, an alto with a breathy voice, kind of like Edie Brickel or the girl from Sixpence None the Richer. She also plays acoustic guitar. My drummer has recently taken up djembe, and has gotten pretty good at it real quickly. They are interested in playing coffee shops, and other places where they prefer bands that are acoustic or very quietly amplified. They are also interested in busking. There are a couple of areas in town where we might do pretty well setting up on the sidewalk. I have an Olympia ABG which is loud enough for accompanying them, as long as they are unamplified. For amplified gigs, I would probably use my Zon fretless, as the Olympia feeds back pretty badly when amplified. Anybody else doing these types of gigs? WRT busking - how do most municipalities deal with it, if there is no amplification involved?
