This is an October 1995 photography of a street band at the corner of Toulouse Street and Royal Street in the French Quarters in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. The three-piece ban included a washtub bass player, a drummer and a guitar player. What first caught my attention with this scene was the small trash can in the lower right corner of the image marked as the "Money Can," with a U.S. $1.00 bill taped to one side and the word "Tips" written in various positions. What maintained my attention was the somewhat forlorn expression on the washtub player's face, the degree to which the drummer reminded me of Richard Belzer, and the enthusiastic character of the guitar player.
