Bach, Boston, Urban

When in doubt, just go where everybody knows your name

So yesterday we had a bad experience playing at North Station that it was kind of a let down, it didn’t feel good to be ignored by people passing by given that so far we have had some sort of a perfect record in getting people’s attention… we got spoiled…

So as we wanted to go back on our feet we looked for shelter again at one of our very successful spots in the past: Harvard Square

This chairs on the spot are so so convenient!

Playing here is so rewarding, people always pays attention, plus, we got one of the best compliments we have gotten so far: “you guys are so brave! thank you for bringing light to this station with your music…”

Heart. Melt.

Not everything is good and dandy, though.

One problem that I have detected is that the business card/invitation strategy is not quite working out a lot, people don’t make an effort to read so I really need to re structure the way I present them to the audience

After that we moved on to Copley Station which has a space with really nice acoustics and on the plus side, here the cards/invitation strategy took an interesting turn because we had many people taking one with them. Who knows, maybe they could eventually come up to the final concert.

Still have to work on a more attractive strategy, though

These old columns are always something very appealing for me to see... don't ask me why...

I always think these old columns are always something very nice to see… don’t ask me why…

I’m hopeful for what’s to come as we approach the end of this journey

Again, please remember that if you are in the Boston area on July 2nd, come at 7:30 pm to Pickman Hall at the Longy School of Music of Bard College to get some good dose of Bach

Also, if you can’t come, catch our performance through livestream at http://www.longy.edu/livestream

Thanks for reading again and have a very good night
