THE FABULOUS LIPITONES

Phil Rizzardi: 50's Owner of "Phil's Eternally Fit" gym, though you'd never know it by his roundish physique. An Alpha. Aggressive, sarcastic, and suspicious of people who are not American. Great singer who can handle Barbershop melodies, but believes he is too good for this corny style.

Howard Dunphy: 50's. Buttoned-down accountant at the Purina Dogfood Plant in town. A guy who avoids conflict, just wants everyone to be happy, which usually results in no one being happy. An equivocator, unable to take strong stands. Great singer who can handle Barbershop melodies.

Wally Smith: 50's. Head Pharmacist at the smallest, least successful drug store in Tooms County, though to hear him talk you'd never know it. An unlikely egotist. Great singer, can handle Barbershop melodies. Totally devoted to this group --The Lipitones are his life. Although, currently, he's distracted by his discovery of Internet dating.

Bob (Baba Mati Das): 20-30. Mechanic at Phil's Gas-N- Git Automotive. From Bombay, he is eager for this chance to "fit in" as an American. Emotionally evolved. A giving, and forgiving, spirit. Loves music, sings beautifully, but new to Barbershop.
