As the winter “blahs” set in, a fixture of the summer party scene will be coming to town to share some fun times. Popular Put-In-Bay entertainer, Ray Fogg, will bring his one-man show of island fun to Lakewood, OH for a single performance at Vosh on Friday, January 20, 2017. Showtime will be at 9pm, with doors opening at 6pm.
The Detroit News said Fogg “weaves music, comedy and heartfelt songs about island life into an entertaining show.” “One island is not enough to hold all of Fogg’s talent” said the Sandusky Register. 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."
Ray Fogg has become a favorite of islanders and tourists alike at Put-in-Bay (located on Lake Erie’s South Bass Island). He is often commended by fellow entertainers for his excellent songwriting. Each year he presides over the official opening and closing of the tourist season at the world famous Round House Bar. He spends most of the tourist season holding court on stage at The Reel Bar, a new island venue opened in 2014 in the historic building that housed Tony’s Place.
During the off-season, his tour will take him to world famous venues like Sloppy Joe’s Bar in Key West and the Tropical Isle in New Orleans’ French Quarter, as well as to Great Lakes towns throughout Michigan and Ohio, where he draws enthusiastic fans hungry for their winter-time Ray Fogg fix.
It’s hard to put a tag on Fogg’s shows. Most leave the show knowing that they have laughed hard and often. But Fogg gets his laughs within clever songs that are not for the kids – adults only! So, some call it a comedy show and some call it a concert. Let’s just say it’s a hell of a lot of fun! Ponder song titles like “Kiss My Bass” and “If They Could Just Cut Off Your Big Fat A** I Think I Could Love You Forever” and you get the idea.
Since 1998, Fogg has released six CDs, five with his band The Swingin’ Lesbian Frogs, entitled Waves in 1998, Kiss My Bass in 1999, I’m Busy (boating, drinking, singing) in 2001, his first live CD in 2003, Live! From Put-in-Bay - It’s Christmas in July, Sorry If I Was A Dick Last Night in 2006 and his latest, Island Life in 2009. All are available through his website at www.rayfogg.net or on Amazon.com.
