Tipping can be a contentious issue. Some people don’t do it for whatever reason. Some do it, if they feel the service exceeds all expectations. And there are those who believe most services deserve a tip. Who doesn’t like getting a tip? The fact is not everyone tips, which may be due to culture, some feel a tip should be earned and not expected. And some people don’t know or choose not to know. The best way for a DJ to go into a gig is: get paid, do an amazing job so they’ll rave about you and give you a good review. If you get a tip… awesome! Thinking about getting a tip, for some reason, makes it not happen.
