: how much do street performers make? like... lets say... a trio of 2 violins and a cello playing on a busy street of Laguna Beach... i was thinking of doing that... seems like it'd be much fun =) and get some extra money too.

Well, 2 of my friends on a trip to California stayed to visit relatives, I think in LA and went out on the street and played a couple of days for a few hours each day and earned $500. One of them is about 15 and I think the other is 12 or 13.

Hello,

My daughter's chosen summer job was busking viola on a ferry trip, about a half-hour each way. She made one or two round trips per day. The most she made in a single day, playing solo, was $80, and the least was $5. Sunny days were better than cloudy. Bloch paid better than Bach, and she wished she'd known more Irish fiddle tunes. She opened her viola case in front of her for donations. (Somebody asked her if she were homeless.)
