SOME RECENT CLIENT AND FAN QUOTES:

"In my time as a meeting planner, I have never had a group so well received as Phil Dirt & The Dozers. Every facet of their program from vocals to their ability to play multiple instruments was stunning. And what a statement when our crowd gave them a ten-minute standing ovation and brought them back for more music. I already have orders to book them back again next year!" Ed Woll, AGP, Inc., Omaha, Nebraska

“The Dozers make life worth living!” Robert Shine, Fan, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

“Foremost the finest corporate entertainment show in America and the only one we have ever booked more than once!” Debra Halliday, BWXT Pantex Corporation, Amarillo, Texas

“Phil Dirt & The Dozers! Best band in the United States of America! We always have sellouts every time we have them at the zoo. We want you back again in 2007.” Jungle Jack Hanna, Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures, Busch Gardens, Florida, David Letterman Show, and The Columbus Zoo, Columbus, Ohio

“What a fantastic show! Phil Dirt & The Dozers ought to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. You guys are that good, more entertaining, and sound better than many of the original artists in the Hall of Fame! We definitely want you back again for a fourth straight year in 2007!” Gayle Bowling, Theatre West Virginia, Beckley, West Virginia

“I don’t want them to open for us any more. How can you follow them, they’re that good” Peter Noone, Herman Hermits, Santa Barbara, California

“During the past twenty two years we have drawn thousands of their fans and have raised over $400,000 for various charities such as Columbus Speech & Hearing, Easter Seals, Christmas Baskets for the needy, and other Tri Village Sertoma charities. They are absolutely the best at what they do and deliver what they promise. The Dozers have been great to work with, of exceptional character, and of course great musicians and singers.” Jerry Hall, Tri Village Sertoma, Columbus, Ohio

“We had your group in Maysville, Kentucky at the Rosemary Clooney Music Festival and along with everyone else, thought you guys stole the show! If I may say so, Linda Ronstadt paled in comparison to your performance. I’ll recommend that you come back next year, if you’ll have us.” Marti Insko, Rosemary Clooney Music Festival, Maysville, Kentucky

“What I have to say comes from experience. Your show may have been one of the finest performances I have ever seen and heard by a band in the 50 plus years I have been in the broadcasting and music business!!! Thoroughly entertaining!!! Musically perfect!!! Thank you for providing great entertainment for my family and myself.” Charles Martin, ABC News Bureau Chief, former owner radio station owner KCLW in Hamilton, Texas

“Your performance was and IS the talk of the town! We estimated 5,000 people and it was the largest crowd any of our concerts have ever drawn. Because of your one, single concert here in Bellefontaine, there has been more enthusiasm about our summer concert series than ever before. We are so very, very pleased with the Phil Dirt & The Dozers performance in our town. I truly thank you, the fabulous Phil Dirt & The Dozers, and the crew for an excellent, excellent concert. See you in 2007” Rose Sharp, Bellefontaine Arts Commission, Bellefontaine, Ohio

“They have talent that is deep and versatile; a passion for performing that makes us, young and old, want to keep watching them forever. We thought last month’s show was great but Phil Dirt & The Dozers topped them all! We’ll do it again next year!” Denny Knippenburg, Tri-State Concert Association, Cumberland, Maryland

“Phil Dirt & The Dozers by far and away was the finest show our concert association has ever presented. The collaboration between the musicians and audience, and the energy flowing on stage through the entire performance was remarkable.” Tom Gilbert, Anthracite Concert Association, Pottsville, Pennsylvania

“You guys sing those songs as good as I have ever heard and in some cases you sing them better than the originals, well, except for the Jan & Dean songs of course. Keep it up!” Dean O. Torrence, Jan and Dean, Los Angeles, California

“For the past 19 years, Phil Dirt and The Dozers has been a staple at the Summer Arts Festival in Springfield, Ohio. One year when we decided to take a hiatus, we got so much ''hate'' mail from our patron base, we realized that no matter how much we wanted to provide a wide variety of arts and entertainment, our audience was content as long as they got their annual fix with Phil Dirt. Their concert in the Veteran's Park Amphitheater during the Summer Arts Festival has become a tradition. In the world of arts and entertainment we tend to recognize those who have made a significant contribution to their field. Well, call it art or call it entertainment, Phil Dirt is a longstanding Ohio-based tradition that has truly become a classic in the 25 years of their existence.” Chris Moore, Summer Arts Festival, Springfield, Ohio

“We are grateful for what you do better than anyone else. But, we are more grateful for who you are” George & Becky Buckingham, Fans, Delaware, Ohio

“I booked Phil Dirt & The Dozers for the first time to open for The Beach Boys in Hiawassee in 2005. They were as good as The Beach Boys!!!!! What an awesome show!!! I had a lot of people tell me how much they enjoyed them. I plan to have them back in Hiawassee for a third straight year (2007) for another performance.” Hilda Thomason, General Manager, Georgia Mountain State Fair, Hiawassee, Georgia

“The Jay County Fair uses Phil Dirt & The Dozers because of their experience, their sensational first-class show, and the superior entertainment value they bring to our fair. And that’s not to mention the near-capacity crowds they draw into the grandstand every year for the past 20 years!” Rob Weaver, Jay County Fair, Portland, Indiana

“Why do we continue to contract them every year? To everyone that has either worked with Phil Dirt & The Dozers or seen the group, the answer is not complex. They are genuine in their love for music. They are professional in their programming and delivery and they are the very best at presenting Vintage Rock & Roll. Phil Dirt & The Dozers are the ''LEADERS'' in their industry. The first and perhaps the final test of any leader is the ability to attract and keep followers. These Dozers have not only attracted and kept followers, but they continue to add to those numbers! They are great performers! Jerry Marshall, Lions Club, Belleville, Ohio

“I chair the annual Arthritis Foundation Classic Auto Show and Cruise-In benefiting the Central Ohio Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation. This event routinely draws 3,000 cars and 10,000 spectators over the two day event. For 20 plus years, Phil Dirt and The Dozers have provided the Saturday entertainment. From the early days of Jailhouse Rock in downtown Columbus to the Naples, Florida, Arts Council, I have enjoyed the Dozers and their work, country-wide. My experience is that unlike many artists who take themselves more seriously than they should, The Dozer's are there to help their audience have fun. The Dozer's continue to give of their time, their talent and all from the Heart.” Jeffrey Brashares, Columbus, Ohio

“We banked on Phil Dirt & The Dozers for our 2005 Christmas party and definitely got more than our money’s worth. What a great investment! We want you back again in 2006!” Dan Craft, 1st Source Bank, South Bend, Indiana

“I chose Phil Dirt & The Dozers to open for The Beach Boys because of their music excellence, showmanship, and all-around reputation as one of the most popular and finest classic rock shows in the country. The Dozers are a class act and second to none!” Jimmy Jay, Jayson Promotions, Nashville, Tennessee

"We originally booked Phil Dirt & The Dozers to compliment our Car Cruise event, but because of their wonderful musicianship, great, tight-fitting harmonies, the many different styles of rock n’ roll, and their tremendous showmanship as entertainers, they became an event themselves! We’ve now booked them for five years straight and they continue to draw thousands of people to our event.” Dr. Tom Butler, Bellefonte Cruise, Bellefonte, Pennsylvania

“I wasn't certain what to expect when I read that you added a new guy to your show. Wow, was I in for a blistering inferno of a surprise! Not only was he excellent in every way, but the Texas firestorm in the guise of Hadden Sayers literally flattened everyone in the audience like a loaded B-17 and left us begging for more of this sensational young man. The entire fandom of Marion left the Palace Theater that night with their ears pinned back and a permanent smile blowtorched on their collective faces. Where in tarnation did you get that ol' boy? I've now been experiencing Haddon withdrawal each time I hear Al Green or Sam Cooke or the Righteous Brothers. Please, I am BEGGING you to retain this talented musician, this angelic blue-eyed wonder with the dimples and smile of a saint but the soul and rock ‘n’ roll wizardry of an old bluesman!!! Hadden, you're sincerely amazing!! And lastly, thank you for a great show! I can't wait to catch you all again this summer!” Nancy Miller, Fan, Marion, Ohio

“I caught your shows twice this summer and not only are you a great band and great musicians, but your interaction with the audience can sure melt away the pressures of our realities. It's strange, but you help us take the concrete blocks off our shoulders at the same time you're working your hearts out. Thanks for keeping me smiling and tappin' the last 10 years!” Mike Chiteman, Fan, Erie, Pennsylvania

“Surprisingly, Sha Na Na’s efforts to parody the sights and sounds of the 50’s & 60’s pale in comparison to the work of Phil Dirt & The Dozers, a Columbus-based band of nostalgic rockers who have performed some memorable shows throughout the Midwest” News Journal, Mansfield, Ohio

“We were particularly impressed with the band’s ability to adapt to the requests from the audience and modeling the second hour’s performance to match the mood and attitude of the crowd at our national sales conference at Nationwide Arena. Everything from the stage setup through the band’s performance was handled in a smooth and professional manner. There has been nothing but positive comments from the event’s participants. Please accept my gratitude for making me look good as the event’s entertainment coordinator. I won’t hesitate to recommend and have The Dozers back for upcoming events.” Ric Whetro, Nationwide Insurance, Columbus, Ohio

“You’re simply awesome! Phil Dirt & The Dozers gives me the rare outlet I need to stay in touch with who I am and who I was growing up. The music you share is the music that filled my soul since I was young. It’s that music that gives me energy, drive and the enthusiasm for life. It brightens an otherwise dull day. It moves me to be-all-things-better because it carries happiness with each note. So, I want to thank you time and time again because your gig is my gig. It’s a vitamin like no other. Your talents are amazing and you pay tribute to perfection in every song you sing.” Lorraine Boyd, Fan, London, Ohio

“I heard the band for the first time last night in Van Wert, Ohio (2006). There are not enough words to tell you how great the concert was! Being 56 years young, the band brought back those memories from the past. Thank you!” Ron Staker, Fan, Van Wert, Ohio

“My wife and I never even heard of Phil Dirt & The Dozers until we went to the 2006 Blue Suede Cruise Festival in Elvis’ hometown of Tupelo. It turned out to be the best thing we’ve ever done. Your band had the best sound we have ever heard from any concert we’ve attended. We were totally impressed and blown away! We’re still laughing from some of the ad-lib remarks between the band and audience members. We were totally entertained! We understand that the festival booked you back for two days next year. We’ll be there and we’ll tell our friends about it.” Ralph Waldrup, Fan, Laurel, Mississippi

“Their success seems to lie in their rapport with their audience, their relatively wholesome approach to the show and their great harmonizing and instrumentation.” Las Vegas Sun, Las Vegas, Nevada

“When you think about tradition at the 2006 Summer Arts Festival, you tend to think of Phil Dirt and The Dozers. The Dozers have this weird ability to make life look a lot easier in the rearview mirror. They do Frankie Valli better than even Frankie Valli“ Andrew McGinn, Springfield (Ohio) News Sun

“My husband of 35 years was always the first to buy tickets for your annual Christmas show at the Majestic Theater. He looked forward to that event anxiously from year to year. You see, my husband fought cancer for seven years. Every Christmas, he worried it would be his last show. On June 24, 2006, he lost his battle and he is at peace in heaven. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t standing out front of a throng of devoted fans when Rick (our beloved drummer who died January 5, 2007) reached Heaven’s gates. I thank you for your courage in performing the benefit concert last night for the Majestic. I can’t imagine how difficult it must have been to have your band family back on stage without Rick. You displayed courage I don’t have. The fact you chose to be here in Chillicothe says it all about your band. You are a band (family) who really cares about others. Thank you for all the years of entertainment and for the hours of joy you provided to my husband. Those few hours each year, he could put down his struggles and just enjoy great music from the best. Carry on with courage and know that God (and Rick) is watching over you!” Doris Routt, Fan, Chillicothe, Ohio

“I was feeling depressed from surgery (I have had eight in the past couple years) when I came to your concert at The Majestic Theater. I immediately felt a whole lot better, happy and great about myself after your started singing and being funny. You are great, funny and awesome. You’re my favorite band.” Linda Chester, Fan, Chillicothe, Ohio

“Let me start by thanking you guys for such a great performance (for our grand opening party on April 10, 2007). That was exactly what I was looking for. We had a tremendous amount of positive comments about the event. We’ll talk soon.” Scott McGregor, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (America) “the world’s largest auction company”

Phil Dirt & The Dozers . . . Nationally renowned and dedicated to performing world class vintage rock ‘n’ roll music in the highest style and quality possible! Unlike any other!

“Phil Dirt & The Dozers is a great example of a band that began with a passion for playing excellent music and who, several years ago, saw an opportunity and had the tenacity to create a full-time, successful business out of it. To date, The Dozers have performed their “magic of music” in 39 states to several million people and have played more fairs, festivals and corporate shows than any other band in the nation.” Steve Cover, Manager, Phil Dirt & The Dozers, Inc., Columbus, Ohio
