His latest cd, "Be Good to Yourself" spawned a #1 and #2 song on Cleveland radio last Fall as well as topping the playlist on several local fm stations. His homegrown songs are recorded in Nashville with rock legends and they regularly win critical acclaim and awards. He is a masterful guitar player, has been dubbed a local legend by the Plain Dealer, and the mayor of Put-in-Bay even declared a day in his honor. You can hear his music and download it at

Ray Fogg Show (Website) - As heard on Sirus/XM Raw Dog, The Ray Fogg Show has been an island favorite for over 25 years. He performs almost every weekend at The Reel Bar or the Round House Bar. The Detroit News said Fogg "weaves music, comedy and heartfelt songs about island life into an entertaining show." The Daily Oakland Press described his show as ..."gut busting, adult humor." The Columbus Dispatch said he's "one of Put-in-Bay's most popular entertainers..." And 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."
