The best job ever. It often involves lugging gear around and setting up the stage for the band. There are also specialized roadies that deal with one specific thing, such as guitars, basses, drums, and front of house sound, these are referred to as techs or techies. Roadies also fix any problems that may occur during a show. Many bands have at least one roadie, but usually don't have more than 10.
I'm the roadie for the PG's; I lug their amplifiers and guitars to the stage and set up for the show. I also handle the merch booth when the singer's girlfriend is busy
