Just wondering at what point should a band member start thinking more like a busnessman?? Im a current member of two bands and one side deal, with all I supply pa, mikes, cables stands lighting trailer truck and fuel aprox 120mi a week giging. All pay and tips are split even average 125.00 per man per night. A few clubs 200.00 to 400.00 in tips not uncommon(most large tips handed directly to front vocalist) When i worked for a band and supplyed nothing but my rig and got paid my price I would kick my tip $$ to the guy/bandmember/friend ect.. paying for the gear (stupid or good faith??) Do ya think I may be out of line thinking a extra 25.00 a gig would be sweet ??? thanks for your input. God Bless Gig On!!!
