The bruin busker that delights locals and tourists alike on the streets of Boston has sustained an injury that has kept him from accepting at least one gig.

Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce officials had hoped to get the ursine busker to entertain the crowd at the group’s annual meeting Tuesday night, but the masked musician apparently broke his foot and will have to sit out the event.

There will still be tunes, though. The Boston a capella group Sweet Harmony will perform, as will violinist Vivian Luo and fiddler Ilana Katz Katz.
