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 simpler, the world a bit smaller, and the cost of a new Chevy about $2000.00. A time when poodle skirts and saddle shoes and the corner drug store were all part of every day life. Seem like a long time ago? It doesn't have to!
Phil Dirt and the Dozers, the nation's premier "rock 'n r'oldies" review will help you recapture those wonderful days! With 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 Season's "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 learned it! The Phil Dirt time machine also stops 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 O'jays, just to mention a few.

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
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for bringing such great music and fun to our closing Chairman’s dinner. We received comments like ‘this is the real 50’s and 60’s stuff, why didn’t we get them sooner!’ and overall, everyone enjoyed what they heard. I know I did and I was furious when I couldn’t find room on the dance floor to swing!
I would like to thank you all for a terrific weekend of rock-n-roll. Approximately 1 1,000 people danced to, sang along with, and enjoyed your music here at Taughannock Falls State Park. In fact, my son (6 years old) hasn’t stopped talking about your concert yet!
I cannot verbalize adequately how much the Ernst & Young employees and their guests enjoyed the musical talent and versatility of ‘Phil Dirt and the Dozers... ’ What a talented group of gentlemen! All who attended had a marvelous time. The set up crew was kind and courteous...they were most accommodating, friendly and outgoing. The band’s musical expertise showed through all night long. They are awesome!
No doubt one of the highlights of our entire week was the performance by Phil Dirt and The Dozers. The music, staging, high-energy performance and audience interaction made for an absolutely outstanding evening. Everyone had a great time... You’ve made a lot of new fans.
