This video has over 25 million views. Pretty fun group just to watch, let alone listen to. Turn your speakers off and just watch them play and you can almost tell what they're playing. Bone player got a lot of funk and spunk!

Looks as if the audience they gathered was really enthusiastic?   Amazed  No?

I completely agree with Fishlips. But you have to dig that kind of music played that way. Not everyone does and it doesn't mean the group ain't right; just different and somewhat unconventional; clearly not for everyone.

Lucky Chops is my idea of what a street band can be under ideal conditions. Bravo to them!

I just thought it was fun, something different. I enjoy their energy and they obviously have fun playing. It's OK to enjoy playing, even just for fun or doing silly stuff. Have you got a video with 25 million views?

That band came up in another thread regarding the sax player, again with varied levels of approval.

I think they're part of what makes NYC fun and interesting.  We have nothing like that in Dallas subways. We only have one subway station in Dallas!

People are creating something from nothing using musical instruments.  It is hard for me to understand how anyone who does the same could disapprove.

That's a great point and a reason why I took it up as a hobby some few years back. Unlike say, painting - there is no residual inventory of creation to do something with. Once a note is played - unless it is recorded - it disappears. The only other thing even close to making music in that regard is either gardening or cooking - where what one produces gets consumed, hopefully.

I especially appreciate the subtle application of dynamic contrast in each phrase! ............................ Evil  Seriously, a bunch of young guys playing acoustic instruments for subway goers - warms my heart. They seem to be having a great time.

Rob,

It's time for you to assemble a performing group, hit the subway station, and start hoppin!  Sing it!

I actually love live music, youthful enthusiasm, many street performers, and the response from passersby. 

Just didn't particularly enjoy "Lucky Chops" - nor did, apparently, most of the subway passengers on their way to/from the trains.   :-0

What makes you say that?  You hardly see any passengers throughout the entire video clip.  I saw a number in the top left corner stop and listen for a bit.  Considering that this is NYC, the fact that someone on their way somewhere else (NOT on their way to listen to a performing group) stopped for even a moment speaks volumes!

Yes riding the subway can be an experience.  I can get a train in Grand Central listening to an excellent cello duet, and get off at Bowling Green where an energetic honk band is playing.  All this music, and I've got somewhere to be.

If you were really lucky you could have heard Joshua Bell playing some Bach partitas.

If you only have one station, that doesn't sound like much of a train line.
