Definition:

Roadie is a broad term that refers to several different jobs, but essentially, a roadie is a person who travels on tour with a band and takes care of setting up and tearing down the stage at each venue. Roadies do all of the carrying of gear back and forth and may be responsible for everything from setting up the lighting to restringing instruments. Some roadie jobs are very technical, while others fall more into the category of manual labor.
