I have a pretty cool gig playing acoustically for a belgian singer doing her renditions of the music of jaques brel. She gives me lots of work and the gigs pay up to $250 for one set of songs. We play a steady gig every wednesday night (for a year now) and it pays $120. She puts a tip glass next to her when we play and drops $20 in it herself to give the people the gyst of what the glass is for. It's a pretty high class french restaurant, people adore her, and every time we play the glass gets filled. I'd say she takes in another $100 to $400 in tips. She doesn't give any of it to me or the guitarist. I feel the tips are intended for all of us, not her, but it IS her gig, and she's clearly who they're all coming to see. We're pretty insignificant, and easily replaced. While we've become fairly close friends with her, when it comes to business there's been some heat beween us. She's obviously decided she does NOT want to share the tips with us. If I tell her how I feel it's going to create an uncomfortable situation. If I don't I'm going to feel resentful everytime someone drops a twenty in the glass. I may need to also refocus my glasses and look at this thing differently. What would you do?
