Yeah, lots of 2nd and 3rd-tier older acts that are a bit less in demand and willing to perform wherever they can find a gig (still not as bad as Spinal Tap....yet). I used to perform at state and county fairs across the country and would run into those acts in the backstage areas. Usually you would see current country bands, and then older rock acts milking every dollar so they can pay the bills ---- Steppenwolf, Foghat, Rick Springfield, .38 Special, etc. And honestly, I doubt they would draw much of a crowd at a theme park full of youngsters at this point in their career.
