Found these today and agreed for the most part:

A good KJ is not necessarily out to troll for tips, and will probably never ask you to give them one passed setting a jar out (sometimes I don't even do that), but it is common courtesy to tip somebody that is working in a service capacity (That includes ANY service job! DJs, waiters, bartenders, etc.), ESPECIALLY if you are making special requests of them.

What sort of special requests should you tip for? There are many things to consider, and they could include but are not limited to:

The KJ sings a duet with you at your request.

Having the KJ start a song over for you one or more times.

Changing your song for you at the last second.

Sneaking you into the list if you come late (most companies don't do this at all as a matter of policy).

Moving you up the list for any reason (most companies won't do this either).

Making a special announcement for you

Stopping the show for you, for ANY reason, such as: singing happy birthday, or allowing you to pop the question to your special someone.

The list goes on. Virtually all of these things inconvenience everyone else, MOST of whom have probably been waiting to sing for longer than you have, and can make people mad at the KJ.

Even so, most KJs will always say yes to most special requests, so if you do ask for something special like this, you should be willing to tip them for it!

Other things you should consider tipping for could include your KJ just being AWESOME. Are they entertaining and energetic? Do they sound great on the Mic? More importantly, do they make YOU sound great on the Mic? Mixing live audio, and doing it really well, is a valuable skill set, and it should not be ignored! It is really easy to tell a KJ that knows what they are doing, from one that does not.

If you constantly feel the KJ makes you sound great, and you consistently have a good tone, then by all means let them know!

Do they go the extra mile in any way? Getting up from the mixer and introducing themselves to you, while being genuinely personable, is commendable. It takes a lot of extra effort to go out of their way and socialize with you while running a smooth show. Leaving the mixing console can be dangerous, particularly with an amateur KJ, or worse, amateur singers! It can take constant attention to sound levels in some circumstances (experienced board operators don't need to fiddle with the controls as much).

Good KJs will do these things as a matter of course even though it can be taxing to stay upbeat and energetic all night, so it isn't too much to ask that you try to remind them that they are appreciated with a tip once in a while.

Karaoke is a business, and it costs money. It costs the KJ and karaoke company money, and it costs the business holding the event money. No one in the process works for free, I know you wouldn't!

So don't be surprised if you don't get special treatment when you come in, act like you own the place, don't order anything from the bar or restaurant, don't tip the KJ, and then STILL expect to get moved around the list or treated in some preferential manner.

A good karaoke company, and good KJs won't give anyone super special treatment, it has to be fair for everyone, and that includes regulars (you should too!); but they do remember those of you that take care of them, and an occasional bone being thrown to the person who tips, over those that don't, is just human nature.
