ROADIE/ ASSISTANT WANTED for working band – Pay starts small, and varies.

Working band seeks an assistant. Part-time.

YOUR DUTIES WOULD INCLUDE:
-- lugging a small PA system
-- setting up a microphone and line-checking it
-- putting up a few lights
-- setting up smoke machines
-- other small tasks

You MUST have transport (this means – NO uber, NO lyft, NO public transport, NO friends driving you around – your OWN transport)

YOU BE:
-- over 21
-- fit enough to lug gear
-- an organized person
-- a good communicator. This means: speak English well and understand it well
-- able to follow directions well
-- residing in the Southern California area, near Anaheim (but not necessary). Most of the band’s work is about 1 hour from Disneyland (in any direction)
-- NO excessive drugs or drink.

You DON’T HAVE TO BE A MUSICIAN OR IN A BAND:
-- If you are a young musician trying to break into playing the circuit, this is a perfect learning gig for you, as you will be exposed to all these aspects: how to set up a PA, how to do a basic mix, how to road-manage a band (as you will be behind-the-scenes with us at all times), how merchandise is handled, etc.
-- If you are a musician, it may turn into a longer-term, higher-paying gig, as the band is always on the lookout for substitute players.

PAY:
-- The pay starts off very small, and the first three gigs are UNPAID TRAINING (i.e. like an intern learning the job)
-- The position has the potential to become more lucrative when your role becomes larger and more valuable within the band organization.
-- This is not a position you should approach specifically for the money. It starts off part-time, and you should have other forms of income. You must WANT to do this because it fits what you want to do in the future -- and the benefits of assisting a working band should be obvious if you are looking for some experience in those areas.

PHONE:
Jon -- 818-906-8633
DO NOT EMAIL OR TEXT.
