The Human Jukebox: Donations to street musicians, as votes

[Video Link] The latest musical video experiment from Joe Sabia and friends at CDZA: "Donations as votes. A fun and democratic way for street musicians to receive money."

Charles Yang on Violin. Michael Thurber on Bass. Eddie Barbash on Alto Saxophone.

Money was sent to Wingspan Arts, a non-profit that aims to expose diverse and young groups of people to the arts.


  1. That’s pretty awesome. One of the things I have to take away from that experiment though is that if you get into music, it has to be for the love of music and not as a way of getting rich quick.

    Edit: Of course the real experiment is getting viral online, which seems to be working very well.

  2. Not the first “human jukebox” act ever, but still pretty awesome. Full of “easter eggs” too! 

  3. I still feel the bass is a hugely underused instrument. If this group can bring it back to the mainstream, they have my eternal gratitude.
