The Ray Fogg Show will now appear exclusively at the Reel Bar and the Roundhouse Bar beginning in 2014!  Island audiences have been leaving after Ray Fogg’s adult oriented music/comedy shows with a smile on their face for over 25 years. The Sweetwater Recording artist has released 6 CDs showcasing his considerable songwriting talents, with songs about time-honored island traditions as well as lots of material that is just plain funny. The Detroit News said Fogg “weaves music, comedy and heartfelt songs about island life into an entertaining show.” The Columbus Dispatch called him “one of Put-in-Bay’s most popular entertainers.” Cleveland’s Sun Papers said, “What attracts people to Fogg’s shows is his ability to write, and better yet ad lib, edgy comical songs and anecdotes perfectly suited to a beer-drinking crowd.” Fogg appears most weekend nights through the season at the Reel Bar (at 7pm) and on select spring and fall dates at the Roundhouse Bar. He also serves as the emcee of a number of the island’s annual traditional events like Bartender Olympics and the Drag Show at the Roundhouse Bar!

The Put-in-Bay Arts Council is a non-profit 501-3(c) organization that promotes the arts in the Put in Bay community. In January of 2000 a small band of islanders interested in community theater formed the Put-in-Bay Dramatic Society and produced Ayn Rand’s “The Night of January 16th” at the Put in Bay Town Hall’s Opera House. The Put-in-Bay Arts Council was organized two years later and the group has expanded its programs to include a variety of free concerts, art programs, and workshops. The arts council has produced a series of plays every winter for the past 12 years.
