Persistence Pays Off

Today I have an audition at the Universal City Walk to street perform there. Evidently they are a bit exclusive with who they allow to perform there. Not only do you have to audition, but they give you time slots, telling you where and when to perform. I had called and left 9 voice mail messages over the course of 3 months. After the last message, last week, she actually called me back and set up an audition for today at 2PM. She also told me that they weren't looking to sign up any new acts at the moment but that she would watch me work.

I would really like to be able to work the City Walk in to my busking options. Friday night I worked Hollywood & Highland, Sat & Sunday at the Promenade. With a kid show on Sat for texture. My shows are good and I'm having fun with them.

Hi Tom,

Good luck and I know you are going to do well. You bring to the table a great act of magic and years of performing experience.

Many people that book acts in the high visible spots in the world have no idea how much they need people like you and people like us.

Keep up the great work because great acts like you make more work for other great acts.
