Most people would be happy to go to a party where everybody knows your name. How about a party where everybody has the same name?

When a guy named Phil Campbell found a town in Alabama named "Phil Campbell," he decided to call every other Phil Campbell he could find for party no Phil Campbell would ever forget.

Even if your name is Phyllis Campbell or Felipe Campbell, you're a guest of honor June 17 and 18 for a party no Phil Campbell would want to miss.

And if you're the Phil Campbell who plays lead guitar for Motorhead, we've got a great gig for you.
