    For my its whether i like the music his putting out!

    Originally and making an effort scores highly with me, and as a bit of a techy-geek (well, i worked in sound and light for two years) an abomination of a PA system wrecks it for me too.

    The only busker i've bought a CD of was Ed Allyene Johnson, but i did also drive to york (from stoke) for that also.

    Anyone with a ukulele gets my money.

    Helps if its a fun, quirky song.



    I don't give any money to people who sing religious songs though.

    If their music is really good and if they seem like awesome people, usually good buskers make the atmosphere in the public area all happy and fun =]

    Hey guys - I busked today for the second time, and after a bit someone came right up and put 50p on my gear - I hadn't put a hat down. So I decided to lay my guitar case out, and after about an hour I had £13!

    It was a quiet street, but Christmas Eve of course, so people perhaps felt generous.
    Awesome haha! Also, remember to put a few pound coins and 50p coins (not too many) so it makes you look like you're worth more and people are more likely to give more
