London Underground Busking

Those talented (and sometime less so) buskers you see and hear as you descend into the tube each afternoon after work will have an opportunity to take their talents above ground to the Andaz Hotel soon.

Andaz Liverpool Street hotel has teamed with Transport for London to offer, ‘Music from the Underground’ at the Catch Champagne Bar from the evening of 13th April.

Buskers have been invited to subit short video demos in hopes of taking part in the ‘Music from the Underground’ event.

Throughout the month of April and May between 5:30 and 10:30, two selected London Underground Licensed buskers will get the luck chance to perform at the bar.

The gigs are free of charge and open to the public. Obviously, to keep true busking in hearts people are able to still give the performers tips.

For those who have CD’s they will be available also!

Arnaud de Saint-Exupéry, Andaz Liverpool Street General Manager, said, “We are so excited about this collaboration – we really believe in it and it is reflective of Andaz Liverpool Street’s ethos to support our local community and culture. The nature of the Underground means people can’t stop for more than a few moments so ‘Music from the Underground’ is providing a rare platform on which London’s world-renowned buskers can showcase their talent to a wider, stationary audience.”

Another great thing is the public is invited to vote online for their favourite musicians to help select which buskers will perform at the hotel.
