You are overlooking another successful type... the hustler.  An example...
during one recent visit to the French Quarter I saw, in one day, the same
musician play for tips at Cafe Du Monde during the day, play for the dinner
crowd at The Palm Court, and then play the night away at Preservation Hall.

Good musicians... especially hustling musicians... earn a living in NOLA.
