Charlie stands outside a saloon door playing a violin with his left hand. A brass band plays outside another door to the saloon. When he is finished playing, Charlie walks into the bar, hat in hand, asking for donations. He is ignored while the men inside the bar applaud the band outside. The bandleader enters, hat in hand, and is given money from the men inside. Charlie competes, and manages to get some small change from a patron. Furious, the bandleader hits him and a fight ensues. Men flee. The band members chase Charlie in a circle in and out of the saloon. Charlie hides by a door while the band runs past, then slinks back into the now-empty bar and steals a shot of whiskey.
