I can guess what a humper is, but that term is interesting and certainly cold be taken differently.  And no, I am not 12 year old.   8)

Two humpers must be available becore and after the show. Lol.

Gonna guess those would be folks to lug gear. Never heard that term though.

In addition to sandwiches and beer, "minerals" is listed. Mineral water? I dunno, seems odd to me.

Great contract, plain language, simple, covers expectations. Takes me back to see typewritten letters on that sort of paper.

Paul Mc$ definitely earned his 20% launching them.

Yeah, 'minerals' - water and fizzy drinks (eg: Cola, lemonade etc) back in the day. 

But now that term would mean plant based or super healthy water based drink.

Yes, a 'humper' is someone to carry gear on and off the stage (aka loading crew these days).

Ah those days of innocence.
One love, One blood, One life;
You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other
