Experienced roadie or guitar tech, or actor needed for my son's band.
Basically, I need you to put up with their abusive and abrasive attitudes for about 5 gigs and then I need you to go nuts on them to teach them a lesson. It will all be staged.
My son's band thinks that because we are affluent and blessed to live in a house the size we do, and that I'll buy the band anything they want, that they can treat people like dirt. They keep begging me to hire a roadie so they can talk down to him and make him do outlandish things that they've heard about in movies or on TV. Primarily you'll set up the backline and their instruments, tune them up and then pretty much kiss their ass the entire gig making sure everything is perfect. Then break down everything and load it into the van I bought for them, and drive the van to a storage unit in Hicksville.
I really think the only way they will learn to treat people with respect is if they learn it on the job.
I'm going to compensate you to put up with them for 5 gigs and then "lose your cool" by smashing all their instruments and amps. I'll hire security so they won't try to stop you. I'll pay you after the last gig, I'm thinking $250 per gig should get the job done for you.
After the gig where you go nuts, so I can save face, I'm going to tell the kids that "I caught up to him in the parking lot and roughed him up really bad." So if they ask you or text you later on, just along with it.
Don't worry about the instruments, its all fake Chinese knock-off stuff anyway, unbeknownst to them...the kids are 18--- they don't know what a real Gibson Les Paul Custom is supposed to play like anyway. They dont even take care of the instruments, the drummer Rob, who you will meet, is too lazy to put his toms and snare in the cases I bought them. He just throws it in the van all loose. It makes me sick.
I'm negotiable on the rate, and can also compensate you with guitars from my personal collection. Don't worry, my son and his band aren't allowed to touch those.
***Oh if you are an actor and not a true roadie, you need at least some music knowledge and how to set up gear and tune.
