Job Title
Company Name
Roadies of Color United

Bill Reeves saw a production of Peter Pan as a kid and was fascinated with how the sets changed and how the actors could fly. While majoring in technical theater in college Bill had a summer job at a local casino resort and started working on the traveling shows. This led to working on his first tour which also happened to be his first concert: Earth, Wind and Fire! In the early 2000s, he formed Roadies of Color United with Lance “KC” Jackson in hopes of creating a much-needed community with fellow roadies. Their main goal is to put a spotlight on the fact that people of color can work on any tour, regardless of the genre. He continues to fight for diversity and inclusion in the hiring of roadies.
