A Song Just for You

Improv in Toronto has some fun with busking.

Every once in a while, it’s nice to be told you’re special.

Every once in a while, Improv in Toronto pops up to do something random and weird and, hopefully, fun.

Combine those two things, and you get Best Busker Ever. This past Saturday, at Queen and Bay, a guy with a guitar offered to make up a song for any passing stranger. The fun part was what happened next—hit play above to see.

    This is the best thing in the world. I just watched it twice in a row.

    Does Improv in Toronto have a working web page other
    than its Facebook address? I’d like to contact them and
    improvintoronto.com doesn’t work for me.

    The musician at the sidewalk is particularly engaging.
    Who is he?

      Re: the website. I ran into the same problem, but that’s the url that’s listed on all their materials.

        The address is good. Try it again.

      Hey David, the site went down because we had a large amount of traffic yesterday, but it should be fine now. As for the main singer, his name is Oliver Bailey. You can hear more of his work here: oliverbailey.bandcamp.com/
