Green Hope Marching Band Props and Roadies
Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!
Job Description - Roadies help the students set up before and after each performance, assist Front Ensemble and Prop Committee students with moving instruments, podiums, and props to and from the field at competitions and football games.
Roadies also coordinate the truck/semi-trailer at away competitions and assist students with loading and unloading the truck before, during, and after each trip.
Home Games Needs:
Need 10-12 roadies total. Need about 4-5 before each game starts and several more for the halftime performance. Help get equipment down to the GHHS stadium before each home game, and back to the band room after the halftime performance.
Help get instruments, drum major podiums, props, and other equipment on the field before the halftime performance.
Roadies that want to help only at halftime can come down to the field a few minutes before halftime and can return to the stands once everything is returned to the band room.
Band Competition Needs:
Need 10-15 roadies at competitions to move equipment and instruments. We cover a lot of distance between where the truck is parked, the warm up areas, and the stadium. The competitions are all day events, some with multiple performances.
Roadies that sign up for each competition are counted on to show up and be available when needed. No-shows will jeopardize the band’s performance and scoring.
We won't know the detailed schedule for each event until a few days before the event. Roadies should be prepared to travel and be flexible with your schedule. There may be early mornings and late nights.
Of the 10-15 roadies, we need 5-6 to arrive early and stay late for truck unload and load. This group will arrive at the venue least one hour before GH's scheduled performance time and stay 1-2 hours after. If props need to be assembled this should start at least 1 hour before students arrive.
The rest of the roadies will be needed before each performance time to push equipment and instruments to warm-up areas and then on and off the field. If your time is limited, this is a great opportunity to spend less than an hour at each competition helping out the band. When the students begin warmups chaperones may be needed to help push instruments or props to warmup and on/off the field.
