Busking is not a job, it is a chance to know the street and the people and maybe add a bit of music and colour to their day .

George

Hi! My name is George Papadopoulos and I was born on May 18th 1988, I am half English and currently live in Athens, Greece.

My initial interest in music began when I was quite young, but I started singing in choirs when I became 8 years old. At the age of 15 I started learning guitar and started playing classic rock and ballads. In 2005 along with my brother and 2 friends we formed a cover band called “Black Rose” and played at bars, local music festivals and at the Speed-surf World Cup closing ceremony in 2008. During my studies I practiced with an anonymous band and later with a Greek rock band called “Comix”. From October 2010 to May 2011 I was bass guitarist and singer in a newly formed Alternative Gothic band called “Sense of Dark”. Since 2006 my brother and I have been playing in bars, hotels, restaurants and some weddings over the summer seasons. In September 2011 I moved to Athens and began busking here and occasionally playing in bars. This year me and my brother Lenny are busking and looking forward to playing in the bars and pubs of Athens.

Busking is not a job, it is a chance to know the street and the people and maybe add a bit of music and colour to their day .
