Sharp-eyed viewers may recognize busker Maxwell from last year’s Busk Break appearance by New Orleans-based busking band Natchez on Fire. Although the band is no longer together—Maxwell was vague on whether or not this was a permanent split—at least one of its members is still keeping the old-timey dream alive. Here, Maxwell performs the Cliff Carlisle classic “That Nasty Swing” in front of Malaprop’s Bookstore and Cafe.
This video also demonstrates the dangers of relying on camera sound, and please accept my apologies in advance for the wind noise. (This was actually filmed on my way to pick up a fuzzy microphone windscreen, if it’s any consolation.) Subscribe to Busk Break on YouTube and “like” us on Facebook.
