I use to really push the tip jar in my younger days, but now have no interest in doing it. Sometimes a pretty woman goes around with it. That helps. Walter

In the early 90s I had a Chevy Cavalier I fondly called the Cavillac!

I hoped we weren't that obvious!

It was great to see you here. But I knew that gig was gonna suck from a business standpoint.

always get a flat fee.

The last time I played for tips was in Ricochet's Hometown.

If it weren't for him and his friend, I wouldn't have left there with anything at all.

They were very kind and generous and I appreciate that.
Of course, just having the pleasure of meeting Ric in Person was worth the drive to Bristol.
Not to mention, I got to see his Vette...LOL !!

I always put something in the Tip jar at other people's shows.

thats a good idea... ill have to keep that one in mind, thanks jaybee

...just gotta be sure she dont take any money from the jar


:roll: do I have to think of EVERYTHING? 8)
the less clothes she wears, the less places to hide any money :wink: 8)

or ypu could use the old Irish trick, that gave passing the jar the name of "bottleing": get an empty bottle (or empty a bottle :wink: ), catch a fly and put it in the bottle, the one passing the tip jar holds the jar in one hand, the bottle in the other, thumb closing it. If the fly is not in the bottle when (s)he comes back, (s)he's had his/her hand in the jar! :shock:

If it won't piss off the bar, mention several times a set that it is a donated performance and some gas money and new guitar strings would be appreciated. We did that at a festival we played for free last year and wound up with over $25.00 in a guitar case.

I think that if you aren't on a street corner or don't bring it to their attention, most patrons assume you are being paid by the bar. The majority of people also incorrectly assume entertainers are well paid, and they were years ago before D.J.s and Karaoke undercut the market. People are usually astonished when I tell them how little we actually are paid and what local scale is.

Oh yeah...the perky babe passing the jar around is still the best method.

:wink:
