Everyone has a schtick these days.
This three-piece ragtime band features a pink gorilla playing a string bass. A fellow in a dog suit and his young friend played the xylophone, at the 59th Street subway station.
From their website, it looks like they have been around for a little while. I saw them for the first time Tuesday night. Their suitcase was half full with donations.
This group calls itself 'Xylopholks'. They've been written up in the New York Times and Village Voice. Other band members include a giant frog, giant chicken and the cookie monster, who must have had the night off.
Here's a super authentic self-produced video of their tour through around New York, haha:
