Re: The tip jar
Every New Year's Eve we do a couple of sets for a town event that has about 15 different acts at any one time. After we finish, I always make it a point to catch this Great New Orleans singer and his band. Toward the end, he and half the band members take off their hats and march a second line up and down the aisles collecting money. People have already paid to wear a button to go to any of the shows. And each of the acts has been paid in advance.
But the organizer said as long as the buttons are sold out (plus they sell New Years party favors and food), each group can do whatever they want for extra money- sell CDs, T-shirts, dance with a hat, whatever...
