I dont use music in my shows. Where I perform amplified music isnt allowed. I guess I have to learn how to juggle while playing the a harmonica one man band style.

I'm interested in hearing what people use in their street shows. I'd like to try music when I move to a new area.

When I make juggling videos I seem to use everything from MC Hammer to the Chemical Brothers.

James Bond/mission Impossible medley-Brian Setzer Orchestra

Knife Chase-Tom Waits

James Bond Theme-John Zorn

Peter Gunn Theme

One Way or Another/Blondie

I've been thinking of changing it...

Break-Fugazi
Spider Baby-Fantomas
Nikki-Prince or Bien Bien-Control Machete

For some reason, I always want to put "Unsung" by Helmet in my show, but I don't know why...

When I juggle I whistle or hum carnival music haha. It makes even the most simple juggling tricks 100% more entertaining.
