Is anyone familiar with drawing in a crowd with the 30foot chain. I learned it on the School of Busking lecture with Mario (I believe the last name to be Morris) and Gazzo (he has a small roll in the set). Mario used it in his straight jacket escape show and dropped it in his later show. I was wondering what kind of success others have had with it and with what type of shows. Thanks.

A chain is heavy, I use a rope. It works. Remember the idea of busking is to travel, so keep it light weight and entertaining.

Mario Morris used a plastic chain (a lot lighter) so he could do the "anchor" out of the bucket and also for the loud noise to attract people. It was quite the site to see. I just wonder if some places it would be inappropriate. Do you know of anyone that has used the chain and in what setting?
