    How much would you pay to see an unknown performer?

    If you dropped in some place to see a performer and they turned out to be pretty good, how much would you pay to see them if it was by suggestion?

      No, I don't think you're being too open handed.  That's a fair price to pay to see someone perform.  It takes a lot of energy and money to put on a good show no matter how simple it is.  Musicians really appreciate people that listen AND pay lol.

    For the same I can spend Only a moderate sum. I can't afford a large sum for an unknown performer.

    I'm not a wealthy woman, so I don't have a lot to spare. I think I'd drop a $5 bill in the bucket. I'm thinking if it is a crowd of people and if other people drop a dollar or two, and some even more, then my modest bill should be enough to show my support.

    Well, the last time that happened, it was a guitarist in a restaurant.  I think we slipped him a five.

    In my city, there was a local performer famous only city-wide. People would pay upwards 15 dollars for him. One that was only known around the neighborhood would be no more than 10 and he would still have even lesser performers come out before he made it to the stage. However, for the one person, I'd say 5 dollars, especially in this recession.

    It's not about whether the performer is known or not. It's about how much you enjoy the performance, the skill the performer has and how successful they are in pulling you in. It's about the experience so be generous if you are having a great time.

      Experience is absolutely important! I know creating that is exciting but definitely makes me tired every time I go home lol
