Many years ago, Phil Dirt and the Dozers came here to perform at the local P.A.L. Building (the old movie theater owned by the Police Athletic League) downtown. They sing the oldies 50s-60s music which I love. I was able to get a couple of autographs while attending the full-house concert back then.

Formed in 1981, the group is famous for their rock and roll oldies from the days of poodle skirts and saddle shoes, which I remember well. The group has performed all over the country, Canada and the Caribbean.

Rick Frye, pictured top right in the photo, died unexpectedly in January 2007. His brother Mark is still with the band. Steve Cabot (right front of photo) is the only original founding member left from 1981. Yet the group still keeps the oldies sounds alive for us "oldies."

There is a wealth of musical talent in the current group with many musical instruments and a variety of sounds, including Elvis and the Four Seasons. They are playing at the fairgrounds in town tonight. I wonder if I'll get to see them again?
