About Peter Renfro

I grew up in Mount Pleasant, North Carolina. I attended UNC-Chapel Hill and received my Bachelor of Arts in Education in 1992. I wanted to teach English and history on the high school level, but quickly realized I hate bureaucracy and red tape. I started working part time with A-Z Mail and within a year took over the business. I liked the freedom and enjoyed the problem-solving aspects of the business.


In 1995 I channeled my love of progressive rock into the ProgDay Music Festival. It is held every Labor Day Weekend at Storybook Farm on Jones Ferry Road. I’ve brought bands over from England, Finland, Italy, Sweden, Japan, France and even Indonesia! I’ve released several CD’s from the event:

ProgDay '95
ProgDay '98
ProgDay 2001
ProgDay - Encore

Since 2003 my involvement with the festival has been limited so I can concentrate more fully on Pack It Ship It. The festival, however, is still going strong -

Besides progressive rock, I am avid reader of horror and science fiction; specializing in pre-World War II pulp writers. I have published a few articles:

"Weird Tales Article"
"STANTON A. COBLENTZ: An Author Maligned"
"The Joys of Fur-lined Shoes"
