The Nature of Music

By Venetia Phillips

The beauty of Venice Beach is that you never know what's going to happen because there is so much creativity walking around. In addition to being a street musician on Venice Beach, I've played in the local venues. One night in Danny's Deli I was playing blues with a guitarist, and everybody was pretty engrossed in the music and just kind of grooving on the blues and in walked Tree Man. To have somebody walk in on stilts is surprising enough as it is, but then to have a 10 foot walking tree is crazy! I had to hold my chops to keep from laughing because out of everybody in the bar, he grabs my relative and swing dances for the rest of the tune.
