A Central Park Treat
Blac Rabbit Plays The Beatles “If I Needed Someone” & “She Said”
Twin brothers, songwriters, singers, and guitarists Amiri and Rahiem Taylor from Rockaway Beach, NY, make up the nucleus of Blac Rabbit. The brothers have been featured on the Ellen TV show.
Here the duo play at the Mall in Central Park on September 4, 2020.
While videotaping I was flabbergasted that no one stopped to listen. People kept walking by as if this was just a normal performance. Uh, no. These two musicians are super talented, especially handling vocal harmonies.
Among the “crowd” were about 12 people sitting 50 feet opposite the brothers, politely clapping after each song.
As I watched them breeze through spot-on renditions of many Beatles classics, quite a number of people, including myself, did make a contribution in the guitar case. After 25 minutes, regrettably I had to leave.
I believe John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr would be pleased with the handling of their songs.
Blac Rabbit also compose and perform originals which are pretty good.
Though I did not start the camera quickly enough I did record a good amount of She Said.
