The Farmers Market “Trumpet Kid”

San Francisco Farmers Market Don’t tell anyone: I tap-danced for years as a child. The sad part? I wasn’t nearly as good as this dapper little kid! I could have watched him all afternoon, as he taps his heart out while blasting his sassy brass instrument. Known around San Francisco as the “Trumpet Kid,” 13-year-old Gabriel Angelo performs around town, including outside the Ferry Plaza farmers market where I recently went before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and driving on to Napa Valley. This pint-sized talent powerhouse is no joke: he’s been on Ellen, met Justin Bieber, performed with Questlove, and tweets tirelessly as MasterBlasterG. I took a video (BELOW) so you could see him for yourself!

A local celebrity in San Francisco, little Gabriel has said many times that he performs tirelessly so he can pay for his own advanced education in music. Good luck, kid! You’ll need it, because…

It’s a jungle out there.

I toured San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma as a guest of Trafalgar Tours, but all opinions are my own.
