How many song books to you bring to a show?

I was wondering how many song books we carry to shows?

I see that most of you have separate books for artists onlyand another set of books for titles only.,

I find that interesting. Never thought of that approach.

Do you find many saying such things as "Do you have a title/artist book" when they have aone and nee the other? Or see them swapping around during the night?

It only happened for me because my books were getting rather large - about 3" binders. Splitting them up made more sense & I can yield more books overall.

Sure they do, but no more so than I used to hear them asking me, do you have an artist listing - when it was IN behind the title section at the time.
Most have their preference & want just the artist, others want just the title, then you do get some that flip flop back & forth - sometimes grabbing both, but knowing if someone needs a book, they need to let 1 go.

I know around here they wouls ALL take both the title AND song books back to their seats.

I decided on artist only with a master copy for those who really know the song but NOT the artist, and this happens about twice a month (@6 gigs a week).

Be surprised at what. I know what they do around here.

Remember, I live here.

I've seen them take 4 books to a table with three sitting at the table and only one singing all night (and only one or two songs at that).

One singer - 4 books. Sounds like a candidate for a sign

You're right.. The other three are prolly saying "Hey, on page 25, sing this one...no wait, try this one on page 28...whatsa matter you ain't gotta book, go get one there's one left."

Ten, usually set out 6 or 7 and pass out the rest if needed. Saves on the cleaning, wear and tear and restocking slips and pencils.

Exactly Swany, I put out 5 or 6, hold a couple back if needed. makes good sense. One bar tonight I brought four, they are getting more and more predictable and paperless all the time.

Predictable? No one does new songs?

Not at that table, they only sing 70-80's, and there haven't been any new ones in 27 years.

I carry a total of 10 but rarely use them all

7 artist and 3 title.

Depending on the show I will put out more or less.

I've found that at times if I put out too many I find them on the floor (I hate thet). I like to keep them in demand so people are paying more attention to where a book is.

Usually have 6 to 8 of them out at any show. But the displayed quantity varies.
