The Human Jukebox

You might remember Eddie Barbash and Jesse Scheinin from my The First Day of Spring (NYC) post back in March 2012. Well, Eddie (alto saxaphone) pops up again in this video, along with Charles Yang (violin) and Michael Thurber (bass).

These days everything's interactive, including these Brooklyn street performers. They allow the audience to be part of the show, controlling the music being played, and the speed at which it is played, by the donations they make, thus turning the performers into a ‘Human Jukebox’ of sorts.

The money went to Wingspan Arts, a non-profit organization that aims to expose diverse groups of young people to the arts.

It's fun. Enjoy. And sing along at the end.

That was absolutely wonderful, thanks, Henry. The editor made a fun and well-intentioned fund raiser into a totally feel good movie. Boy those boys can play!
