julesbeeb:  It also depends on where you are int he world. Here we don’t tip unless it is exceptional service. We might round up a bill at a restaurant or in a taxi but tipping is not expected especially for services.

If you are int he US then you are pretty much expected to tip everyone. The only exception is those who own the business. But I got married in the USA and I still tipped my photographer and make up artist even thought hey owned their business because they did an exceptional job.

In NY (dont know re other states), it is illegal for a business to charge a service fee and not give it to servers, so I would not tip in addition.  I never heard of tipping band.   I would likely give $25 to the assistants of variousl people.
