					YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED...

To join PHIL DIRT AND THE DOZERS on the ultimate musical journey. To travel back
to a time when life was more simple, the world a bit smaller, and the cost of a new
Chevy about $2000.00. A time when poodle skirts, saddle shoes and the corner drug
store were all a part of everyday life. Seem like a long time ago? It doesn't have to!

PHIL DIRT AND THE DOZERS, the nation's premier "Rock 'N Roll oldies" review, will
help you recapture those wonderful days! W ith their musical talent, high energy and
contagious sense of humor, they'll transport you to another time and place, the '50's,
'60's and 70's of Rock and Roll! Imagine hearing The Four Seasons' "Sherry" with the
original falsetto vocals intact, or the hauntingly beautiful Righteous Brothers'
"Unchained Melody." Imagine the Platters' soul -stirring "Only You," performed with all
the scratches and skips found on a well-worn 33 1/3 record, the way the Dozers first
teamed it! The Phil Dirt Time Machine also pauses in the '70's, where you'll experience
some of that decade's greatest hits, including hits from The Doobie Brothers, The
Eagles and The Ojays, just to mention a few.

PHIL DIRT AND THE DOZERS, formed in 1981, has been mesmerizing crowds from
New England to Hawaii, and the Caribbean to Toronto. Let me introduce you to the
reasons why ... Steve will captivate you with his own beautiful voice, as well as his
ability to emulate famous voices of the era, and will guide you on your nostalgic journey
to the 50's, 60's and 70's; Mark, (a two-time Emmy award winner) will energize you with
his dynamic keyboard, saxophone and flute work; Rick will get your heart pounding to
the rhythm of his wonderful percussions; Tony, likely to trigger a standing ovation with
his gorgeous vocal talents, will also electrify you with his guitar work; Chaz, whose bass
provides the pulse, will enthrall you with his harmonica, saxophone and vocal abilities.
This is an amazingly talented group of musicians, yet very humble, professional and
charming!

PHIL DIRT AND THE DOZERS' nostalgia show, encompassing three decades of great
music, is performed absolutely live, and is done with a sophisticated yet light-hearted
approach that creates an atmosphere all age groups enjoy, A five member band based
in Colum bus, Ohio, the Dozers have a staff of four technicians that travels by truck with
all the production and lighting equipment needed for a professional performance of the
highest caliber.

So start your journey now by browsing through the enclosed materials, then lace up
your saddle shoes, hang the fuzzy dice from the rear-view mirror, and contact
Producers, Incorporated today to schedule YOUR corporate event, fundraiser, dance,
fair or festival!
A MORE INTIMATE LOOK...

the Dozers..

STEVE CABOT - Steve is a founding member of Phil Dirt and the Dozers. A captivating
performer, Steve has a wonderful stage presence and a beautiful singing voice. He also
has an uncanny ability to emulate the vocal styles of some of the most beloved musical
artists, such as Roy Orbison, The Beach Boys, Frankie Vali, and, yes, Elvis Presley!
Musically versatile, Steve also plays guitar, keyboards, sax and drums. Steve is the
band philosopher and intellectual, as well as being the Dozer voted m ost likely to create
some on-stage mischief!

MARK FRYE- Mark joined the Dozer organization in 1983. Extremely talented and multi
-dimensional, Mark has the most formal musical education among the group. The
Dozers' primary keyboardist, Mark also plays the saxophone, flute and bass guitar, as
well as contributing strong vocals. Mark has knowledge of many other facets of the
music business, including arranging, engineering, and production. Mark's work
composing music soundtracks for television documentaries has garnered him two
well-deserved "Emmy" awards. Mark's solo CD entitled "Jack Hanna's W orld" is
available on VIRGIN records worldwide. W e're proud to have him as a Dozer!

RICK FRYE- Before sharing the stage, Mark and Rick shared parents! Rick, the elder of
the Frye brothers, also joined the band in 1983, and has been making an important
contribution to the Dozer sound ever since. A seasoned professional, Rick is known as
"the quiet one." A low key, mellow guy until he gets on stage, his exuberance at the
drum s is only controlled by the fact that he has to sit down to perform! His dry wit
appears during the show at the most unexpected moments, and always stops the show.
He is an extremely talented musician, and a great asset to the Dozer sound!

TONYALFANO - Tony joined the Dozer organization in'93 as a singer and guitar player,
and is a whirlwind of enthusiasm. He reawakened in all the Dozers the pure and
heartfelt love for music that inspired them to be musicians. At the end of a long road trip,
when everyone is red-eyed and bone-weary, when it's three in the morning and home is
still hours away, Tony will quietly start to sing in his beautiful, soft voice. The others stir,
and one by one, join in, the lines of exhaustion melting from their faces. To so inspire
others, and to be able to touch the very souls of those who listen when he sings, make
Tony's a very special talent.
CHAZ MECHENBIER - Chaz is the newest member of the group, joining in early 1997,
but proudly claims a longtime friendship with the Frye brothers (Chaz and Rick played in
a band together in the early 80's). Chaz spent a number of years in Nashville, where he
played guitar for several artists of national renown such as Jerry Reid and Ronnie
Milsap. The Dozer bass player, Chaz has amazing talent on several instruments,
including guitar, keyboards, saxophone and harmonica. His strong vocals contribute to
the depth of the Dozer sound. Thrilled to be a Dozer, Chaz is rarely seen without a
smile. W e are proud to have him.

and finally..

PHIL DIRT- Phil was born in 1981 on a cold, lonely night, in a dark and smoke filled
barroom. Those who were lucky enough to be present at his birth probably had no idea
that the event they witnessed would have such a long-term effect on the music
community. W ho would have guessed that in just a few short years Phil Dirt and the
Dozers would have traveled the continent performing to screaming fans and standing
ovations; have several albums to their credit; have appeared on local and national
television; and been the focus of dozens of newspaper and magazine articles? Yes, Phil
is a figment of the Dozer imagination and only exists in our hearts. And yet, Phil has
become a symbol, a patriarch, an eccentric but favorite uncle, and the gleeful little kid in
all of us. He reminds us that you're never too old; that life is short, but good; yesterday is
as close as your favorite memory and some good songs; today can one day be a
favorite memory; and tomorrow can be... well, Phil thinks you can find the answer to that
yourself!
