UM Icon – Violin Monster

This guy is so cool, brightening up the probably dark gray sky with his music. People always see the Violin Monster showing off his spiffy skinny jeans and his killer mask. A quote from his website, “though his appearance may be frightful, his tunes are delightful.” He plays a variety of styles, and is just super chill. Check him out, and dance to the tune of the Violin Monster.

UM Icon – The Harmonica Guy

I am sure we have ALL seen at one point or another this guy performing outside the Undergraduate Library. He is there all year round, performing even in the snow! He is amazing, playing the harmonica, playing the washboard, and notice the shaker attached to his foot? He is completely self taught, if you want to know more about him there is an excellent interview done here by the Michigan Daily. Apparently he is a senior researcher in the department of biology. who knew? This man, is in a word, amazing, bringing people together through the joy of music. Another UM icon, check him out.

UM Icon – Link

As I was walking from Expresso Royale to the Ugli (yes I need coffee to study and Bert’s cafe’s coffee reminds me of dirt), I saw a girl dressed as Link, the old Nintendo game character. She was playing something that resembled the Ocarina of Time. I thought that was so sick, she was just standing ther playing music. Then I realize through my time here there are many many people who do these random acts of awesomeness for fun. These people are unique to UofM, so I’ve decided to try to find as many of them as I possibly can. These are the people that nobody knows, but when you talk about them, EVERYBODY knows them. This girl is new as I haven’t seen her before, but if you’re lucky, maybe you’ll see her sometime ( she is SUPER NICE). Be on the lookout for these people, they are after all part of your University of Michigan experience. Image
