Hi guys – so I was approached by a reporter for the website http://www.vayable.com requesting an interview with me about busking the Underground of NYC.
You may be asking…What is Vayable? Well…
What is Vayable?

Vayable n.\หvฤซ-ษ-bษl\A marketplace that lets people to discover, book and sell tours and activities worldwide.
The term is a combination of vaya, which means “let’s go!” in Spanish and viable, which means “capable of living, growing and developing adequately.”
Our missionย is to enable entrepreneurship, cultural exchange, community-building and exploration worldwide by empowering people to share experiences with others.
At the heart of Vayable is a community devoted to experiencing the world better. Vayable enables people to not only share their stories, but to invite others to participate in them. This is the future of travel. We believe that by taking a trip, you can change the world.
Anyway – The reporter, who was looking for 5 ‘New & interesting New Yorkers” to profile for Vayable came underground with me & interviewed me for a few hours, then suggested I create a profile for a tour if I felt so inclined…so I did!
Yesterday was my first tour, booked by a guy named Pedro in San Fransisco for his sister Anotonia & her friend, (both from Chile) for Antonia’s birthday. Needless to say we had a blast. Antonia got so many renditions of “Happy Birthday” sung to her in so many different styles, accompanied by so many different instruments, one can only imagine ๐ We traversed East to West & I’d lined up my most favourte buskers to play, sing & chat with her along the way.
Here’s her review: ย “The tour was amazing! I beeing for three weeks in nyc but I had never looked the subway like that. Your going to be able to hear really good music and know a little bit of the history the musiciens down there. Also Heidi is an amazing singer!” ~Antonia P.
