    Default What do you think the cut is when the Wabos go on tour?

    Do you think the money gets divided into equal shares between the band, or does Sammy get a little extra because he is the star of the band.And when Mike plays with them, does he get paid well?

    More likely Sam gets all the money. To have a band like the Wabo's, he'd have them on Salary which would be so much per week when they're not on tour and so much when they are. This is how it's done. It's like a buisiness with payroll, overhead, etc....

    I remember an interview in early 2004 once they went public with the VH reunion that Sammy made the statement that he was going to "keep the Wabos on payroll through the end of the year", so that is probably your answer...amazing how the hopes with VH changed since then.

    I'd guess Sammy gets most of the money! The Waborita's are very replaceable. People pay to see Sammy, not Mona or Vic Johnson.

    Sammy pays the band a salary.. not a per gig basis.

    This way the Wabos know what they're gettin' annually, and Sammy knows what he's shelling out. That's how he kept them together in 2004.

    Good thing too. It'd be a real shame if Mona ever ran off to do that long rumored solo album.

    Just wondering, if it's a salary, what do you think it is? 100g's? More? That would only be a small sum for Sam. I think Mike plays for free. Sam picks up his travel expenses I'm sure. Then writes it off.

    I bet each member gets about 50k a year. Plus free lodging, food and drink while on the road. Actually that wouldn't be a bad gig at all for a working musician. Getting paid at all is hard when your a musician. Unless you make it big. No one wants to pay for music.
