'Roadie' is a term used to descibe the humans that travel with musicians or performers that are typically involved with setting up and operating the equipment used to put on the show.

Generally the guitar, bass and drum techs, the sound, lighting and more recently, video techs are considered true roadies. The bus drivers and truck drivers may or may not be considered roadies depending on who you ask.

Roadies have a reputation for drinking and working hard and a general stature of ruggedness which is generally the case.

In many ways roadies are just glorified carneys.
