Looking for Roadie Job (New to the site/business)

Hi, my name is Johan, I'm 23 years old and looking for a job. I live in the Netherlands. My big passion in life is (metal) music. I play a little guitar myself and I'm looking for an occupation in the music industry. I'm schooled as a veterinarian assistant, so I'm nowhere near technical experienced. But I'm very passionate about the music and the scene and I would be a dream come true to be working in the background as stagecrew/roadie of sorts. I'm not a leading/managing type of person and I…See More

New to the business 4 Replies

I have been wanting to get a job with a road crew for a long time now. I have thought on and off about it for years (my hometown doesn't really offer any opportunities for such work) and now I am determined.I have some knowledge of equipment as far as tuning a guitar or hooking up cables ect, but I am not an expert. I consider myself to be pretty handy when it comes to fixing things that need attention and I am a very fast learner. I have plenty of sales experience and plenty of experience…Continue

Why Are You On The Road? 12 Replies

Out of curiosity, what prompted you to carve out a career on the road? Was it the irrisistable prospects of easy money and fast, easy women?  Or was it the promise of all the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll you'd heard so much about? Maybe you was lured in by the "glamorous lifestyle".  Or are you one of the proverbial "failed rock stars"?Personally, my main aim was to piss off the detractors and haters that I grew up with. The people who disliked my refusal to take life as seriously as they did,…Continue

To Teach or Not To Teach? Why keep "trade secrets"? 20 Replies

I started in the Entertainment industry when I was just 13 years old working at a Summer Stock theatre in N.W. Illinois.  Since then I have had the opportunity to work with some great people who didn't see me as this "annoying kid" but as a peer who worked side by side with them as a professional.  The basics of the industry to me where as natural as breathing, for I had been raised in a blue collar construction based family.  But it was the fine tuned details that I had to learn.  (Lingo,…Continue

what's with all these $1000/week gigs advertised on this site? 172 Replies

I don't get it, these kind of weekly rates haven't been the norm since the early 90s... do people actually think they can get half decent and experienced crew at those rates? Does this mean that sites like this are unfortunately (and unintentionally) dragging down touring rates while trying to connect bands/managers with experienced crew? Thought this might be worth some discussion. cheersContinue
