Hi, I want to know if you guys have any serious ideas on how I can raise money to buy guitars, guitar accessories, amps, microphones, lights, and so on for my band because I have no money to buy it and I really need to raise money, thanks!
By the way I'm 16 and I am looking for jobs!

play shows wherever you can and as many as you can and if you dont have the minimal gear to do so try to borrow some from other bands
#5
Besides getting a job the only thing you can really do is sell things that you own. Sites like ebay and craigslist are good, or if there are any pawn shops near where you live. Also idk if you have any old gold jewelery but i hear you can make a bundle at a cash for gold place.

Go to your local farm, kill all the cows there, and if you search all of them, you should find some hide on each one. Take these hides to a craftsman and have him cure the hide into leather. After you do this, go to the mall and try to go person to person, asking them if they are interested in buying some fine leather. If you do this right, you should get about a thousand or so......

Not to raise money, but you'd be saving a loooot of money in the long run by getting a good laptop and Native Instrument's Guitar Rig with Rig Kontrol. You'll never need another thing in your setup.

Heads up: Serious answers from the Pit = unlikely. But that's why we all love it.

As far as raising money, if you can play guitar, and it's not to cold outside, just jam downtown with an open case. And I'd recommend throwing some change in there yourself first, so it looks like people have already paid you a little. Visual cues help the public learn what to do.

I've got the same problem and I'm 15. A cool idea would be to teach some other people to play for cash, if you know anyone that wants to learn.

you would have to know alot and be a really good teacher, both of which are doubtful at age 15.

Stand on a corner in downtown with a pretty pink dress and a sign that says "Will do anything for a twenty." After some time people will hire you.
#15
don't take financial responsibility for your entire band, hopefully the members are contributing too. actually put them to work as in you're the pimp and they're the band ho's
#16
What you do is stab hookers on the street and take their crack and then sell the crack back to the pimp that they got it from.

Obviously he knows that

From the second page:

"Actually, the people who claim to be making money on CashCrate probably are, but they're not doing it by taking 30-cent surveys. Whenever you see a banner on someone's blog or website for CashCrate and you click on it to sign up with CashCrate you become their "referral," and someone you don't know is making money while you're clicking on "No, No, No" and "NO." You can make a lot of money on CashCrate, if you promote it on your blog and website and get people to join it. As for the actual surveys themselves? RipoffReport.com says, "Yeah ... good luck with that.""


McJosh, I applaud your evil ways.

Packing bags at a supermarket, in a fast food restaurant, washing dishes, paper round (though there's no cash in that), babysitting, walking dogs, clearing snow from drives if you're in a snowy area, lawn-mowing etc.

Whether you choose to believe it or not, this actually works, I can make 15-20ish dollars every time I do this.

1) steal wheelchair from hospital
2) search ebay for assorted vintage military garb
3) purchase aforementioned military garb
4) don military garb
5) sever 2-3 limbs from body
6) park wheelchair downtown
7) shout incoherently, insert "Vietnam" on occasion

seems to work well for an old guy in the downtown eastside out here.
