Band of the Day #2546

Downtown Berkeley has stepped it up recently – there are more artists there, more people singing and dancing, more street vendors with interesting little bits. This is, I believe, the John Brothers Piano Company, and I arrived after work to find them putting on quite a show for everyone. The trumpet player also rocked the clarinet, then joined the pianist for a fantastic duet. I was reminded of Pearce’s piano trio from Santa Cruz, when the players were constantly switching places on the bench.

Nearby a bear made of scrap is ready to take a selfie, and a woman painted silver stood silent with her parasol. She winked at me as I passed, drawing a surprise smile out of me.

Cities are constantly changing, for better or for worse, and it’s good to see Berkeley so lively.
