are you kidding me? what's the minimum salary for NFL? $285k for a rookie, and it increases with seniority. $285k per year

A world-class violinist (say, Itzhak Perlman) can make well more than that. Consider that a weekend engagement will usually start around $50k for three days. More for a solo performance. Plus taking care of travel and amenities.

One weekend engagement a month for a year will yeild more than many NFL players.
