Busking Events

Busking is a term used to describe street entertainers such as us The Free Radicals . Busking has been frowned on in some areas because of the mistaken imagery of a down and out, putting his or her hat out for money ala: begging this could be not further from the truth of the way it is.

Busking has been a starting point for many an international star whose talent and undoubtedly hard work was finally recognized with the “big break” at some point in their busking endeavours.

By and large, Buskers are creative entrepreneurs who are willing to take the opportunity to practice their Busking craft with a calculated return based on the audience generosity to support them in doing the thing they love. Street entertainers add colour and fun to what could otherwise be a cold and lifeless event.

We are available for events as buskers playing Australiana / Celtic upbeat music or for hire for special events and themed functions.

Prices scale from $200 performance fees within a 100 k radius for a day/evening event with additions being fuel, accommodation for longer entertainment events, additional karaoke, or master of ceremony duties.

Please contact us for availability and pricing if you have an event that needs upbeat lively all age-friendly entertainment. Community functions, Street entertainers concessions are available.

The South East Queensland Busking championships will be held on February 26 and once again Buskers will fill the streets with Music something that we have all missed because of that dreadful C word COVID and all its forms.

We can also confirm that as this is an outdoor event BUskers are not required to be double /triple vaxxed.  The same applies to the finals concert which we will be holding outdoors on the stage in Weeroona Park.

Sonya has been a singer for many years, well known as a local entertainer and community event coordinator.

After Russell bought her a Ukulele a few years back Sonya started to transition from singing and entertaining using a music backing track to now playing live music as an accompaniment to her performances.

Now she entertains playing the multiple instruments, Ukulele, Harmonica, Tambourine, and StompBox at the same time as well as Singing

Russell spent many years on the other side of entertaining as a professional road crew for the Icons of the early Australian Rock Music Scene.

When Sonya bought him his first Didgeridoo it started the process of the transition, to the other side of entertaining, as a player.

Now along with the Spoons, Washboard, Clapp Sticks, Bells and Percussion, they both have fun as the entertainment busking duo ” The Free Radicals “

As ” The Free Radicals ” brand they have been educators of the alternatives to conventional health and lifestyle choices by advocating and living healthy ageing protocols that embrace plant-based nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, conscious consumerism, and minimalism.
