  1. 1.
    work as a roadie for a band.

    Roadies are an important part of the TRB family. Without Roadies, the band would be unable to transport their instruments and equipment to any of their performances. Roadies travel with the band using their own personal vehicles to each scheduled event. Roadies may also be required to drive a rented box truck if necessary. Roadies are responsible for the loading and unloading of the props, back drops, judge blockers, sound cart, speakers, instruments, and any other items the band may require for their performance. As always, Roadies set the example by being courteous and professional during the execution of their duties.

    You must must have a cleared NISD background check on file to be able to roadie with the TRB. In addition to being a Roadie, we ask that you be willing to change hats when needed for a variety of tasks whenever called upon (uniforms, chaperone help, etc.). 

    Please wear your Taft booster shirt or red Taft shirt and khakis (capris or pants) or jeans and comfortable closed toe shoes as you will be standing and walking around quite a bit depending on the event. You may also want to bring a pair of work gloves to protect your hands and fingers from any scrapes or scratches that may occur during the loading and unloading process.

If you would like more information about becoming a roadie, please email: roadies@taftraiderband.org

Thanks for helping the band "Make It Happen!"
