It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
Loc: Cameron Park, California
I tried clapping along and it pretty heavily distracted from listening and enjoying the piece while having to (I could just be inept at clapping/multitasking). I'd just have a select few that don't mind focusing on it and that have maybe practiced a run-through once or twice do it on or near the stage.
edit: by the way, where are you guys going to be playing? Maybe I'll come if it's not too far.

Well, at the gig, the audience was a total failure at clapping. We had a few people come up and do it, but many joined it, but not correctly. To be fair, the bass player got a little off too, but I'll have to work something else out next time.
