Previous question

Karen & Slaid, my name is Packy Reep and I’ve seen you in Pittsburgh for the last 5-6 years at the Rex Theatre and Club Cafe. I’m a huge fan and I’d be interested in having you play a private party if it fits your traveling schedule for your summer 2019 show in Pittsburgh. I’d gladly pick up yours and cho jo’s Or Scrappy’s hotel rooms in Cranberry Twp PA for the extra night in town. We are having an event called “Reepest” and there will be several opening acts including my band and my father’s/uncles band. You would be the headliner. I can send you pics of my house and property if you’re interested as I understand any reluctance in this request. If you’re interested, please let me know and reply to and we can discuss further details. If not, I understand and we will see you when you play in Pittsburgh this summer. Packy Reep

Hello Slaid - I have enjoyed your music for many, many years - My question might not be appropriate here? Having just retired last year, I am very happy not to be working. So I ask, why do you think "superstar" artists keep performing - I can see doing a show or two, but riding on a bus, week after week, has to be a drain. My guess is that it is not for the money? We've seen the music industry change so much in the last ten years, is the only way for an artist to make a living anymore in the music business to tour nonstop? Look forward to seeing you in concert soon. Gary Wiedeman
