Grant And The Street Bouncers by 


Grant And The Street Bouncers
Grant a Melbourne street poet, will tell you a poem for a beer. He’s been busking for over 20 years, forgets his words from time to time or there is a long delay while he has a swig of his beer.

He talked with me about giving up the street performing due to him being asked to move on by security company’s which he called the street bouncers. “Without permission you can no longer do your thing, as soon as you set yourself up on a couple of milk creates the street bouncers come along and tell you to piss off”

On the day this photo was taken he was promoting the Rose street artist market, I’m not sure if he was getting paid cash or if he was getting beer. He did have his long neck bottle of beer hidden in a tube that once contained a bottle of Bourbon.

    Hey! It’s that guy who hangs around Brunswick street and only lets you take his photo if you give him a beer! Lovely guy, shook my hand for about 5 minutes straight once when I told him I liked his hat. Ah, Melbourne. Love the characters. Seeing this portrait has made my day.
