  • Do you use a sign w/ your tip jar?

    Of all the signs I've used, this one has done the best, even in places that ordinarily tip poorly:

    God(s) bless the rest of the world(s), too

    I'm gonna adopt that one next time I play a gig where I have a tip jar.

      I never played for money, Terry. In the places I played, the free beer and "gemuetlichkeit" was "pay" enough for me.
      Three Dreads......2 Martins and 1 YamahaA fiddle, a mando, a uke, eight harmonicas, a Zoom H2, a Panasonic recorder, coupla penny whistles, an Italian made Titano accordion, three handguns, at least a dozen chess sets, more power tools than Bob Vila, and one old Westclox "Big Ben" wind-up alarm clock that still works! Oh, BTW, I forgot to mention my ocarina and maracas.

            I'm a big fan of small dry erase boards.

              I can appreciate the sign it shows a sense of humor so IMHO that's cool. Personally I would put down a sign that simply says "Thank You"

                I'm impressed that your sign, Terry, is on a piece of wood.

                  Only see a red x. What does the sign say..?

                  I used to use the old "I am blind and my dog is dead" sign.

                    I usually will put

                    "I'm playing for free tonight. I gotta eat, so please support me and throw in your loose change!"

                    It depends on the place but I generally will get anywhere between $4 and $30.

                      Do your big arena gigs have tip jars as well?

                      It's important to be a victim.
                      Sometimes, you really have to dig down and search for a way to be a victim, but you can do it if you try hard.

                        Ditto - no sign.

                          Our sign asks for donations for the bass players heart transplant.
                          Oh, and by the way...the "quote" in the headline is fiction. Nothing in the study, or in the highly biased interpretation of the study, says that. To me, that's a sure sign the OP is trying to fit facts to an agenda, rather than base an agenda on facts.----Anderton

                            Ditto - no sign.

                            It says "Tips: Just a nice way to say "thanks" for NEVER playing Justin Bieber"

                              Ours says, "Show us your TIPS", but it's a relic from one member's previous (and more bawdy) band. I'm on the lookout for an old brass spitoon, and hoping to come up with some clever way to play up the fact that "tips" is "spit" backwards.
