A lively band of musicians entertain passers-by at a Paris metro station. It's unusual to find such a large group of musicians performing inside a metro station - typically you might see a lone violinist or perhaps a string trio.

I love street musicians -- some are so good. Did you hear the report that Joshua Bell played in the subway, just to see if anyone would stop by. Just in jeans, open violin case by his side. He made $37. (Good thing he won that Avery Fisher prize -- I think that was the one!)

The metro in Toronto is called "the Red Rocket". When I am riding the subway, I try to guess what people do for a living.
It gets hilarious at times!!!

Hi! I'm glad I found your blog through My Marrakesh. Enjoying your pictures and seeing life through your lens.
That IS unusual to see such a large band in the metro. Very unique. I have always been a fan of street music. Here in New York, my favorite is the Banjo player on West 4th street subway. It's like, who plays the banjo anymore! That's why I love to see him there...and he's a bit of a hillbilly himself.

This is one of the very best things about Paris! (There are so many good things...)
