THE PRESS KIT - EVERYTHING YOU'LL NEED...

Doc Mehl is pleased to provide you with Press Kit Materials for your upcoming event. Just click, grab, and copy the information you need. Happy to oblige!  
 
Stage Introduction:
 
Doc Mehl's last name is pronounced with a silent "H" - Like Mel. Mel Tillis. Mel Torme. Mel Gibson.  You get the drift.  And, for stage introductions, Doc pretty much prefers that you just ignore the first name that appears on his birth certificate.  Oh, there's nothing wrong with the name "Al."  But folks mostly just call him "Doc."  If you find yourself standing at the microphone introducing Doc, just skip the "Al" part and call him "Doc Mehl."  And you might just mention this website, "DocMehl.com;" that will give folks a chance after the show to visit the website and learn more about Doc.
