Australian ‘One Man Band’ Juggles Shakers While Playing Multiple Instruments, Combines Talents Into Rhythmic Masterpiece.

It’s not too often that you hear about someone moving from the pub and into the street, and getting MORE people to pay attention to them. It’s even rarer that this move would even increase your chance to travel and see the world.

Juzzie Smith begins his evenings by suiting up, setting up, and laying out his weapons of choice; many of which will be used simultaneously. Crowds gather ’round him on the sidewalk in curiosity, anticipation, and then suspended wonder once Smith begins. To say they’re anything but mesmerized would be an understatement.

From the first note blown through his harmonica, to the last chord strummed on his cigar-box guitar, everyone watching can feel the music in the air, as if it were the wind moving them to the beat; only to once again be controlled by Juzzie’s rhythm.

To close your eyes and hear Juzzie, would likely confuse you. You’d think there were a multi-pieced band. But once your eyes opened, you’re transfixed on the movement of the beat, melody and Smith’s dance that keeps the music moving.

He grew tired of playing music in pubs for money, and realized that he could take his one-man show to the streets, to the people. His busking throughout Australia has gained great grassroots momentum, leading him to playing more and more festivals.

He recently played at the Blues at Bridgetown Festival, where an enthusiastic onlooker captured the virtuoso in action.

Take a look, dance along and maybe try to find a way to do two things at once as well, today.
