Featured Entertainers

Bob Gatewood & the Calabash Band (Website) - You can catch Put-in-Bay's own Bob Gatewood around 100 times a summer, either with his band Calabash (Round House Bar, Beer Barrel) or as a solo artist (Fishbowl). 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

Mike "Mad Dog" Adams (Website) - Put-in-Bay's favorite pirate entertainer Mike "Mad Dog" Adams has been a Round House Bar island tradition since 1980! Performing throughout North America and the Caribbean, "Mad Dog" has opened concerts for a wide range of legendary performers, Johnny Cash, Alabama, Loretta Lynn, Charlie Daniels, Starship, Jerry Lee Lewis, and many more. He has also appeared on Comedy Central, The Nashville Network, The Dr. Demento Show, Sunday Funnies, Nightshift and local television and radio shows throughout the U.S.

Pat Dailey (Website) - The Bard of The Bay, Singer/Songwriter Pat Dailey will be entertaining the faithful in new digs as he has moved his ever popular show to The Boat House on Put-in-Bay back in 2007 and he is playing there again this year.

He will play 7:00pm shows on Holiday weekends and every Saturday in July and August and through mid September.
The Boat House will serve dinner prior to Pat's shows,so come if you are hungry. The recently redecorated club is in a class by itself with a beautiful nautical theme and plenty of space to enjoy what has been called "The Best One Man Show in The Country". You can expect superior service and reasonably priced adult beverages on a regular basis.
The Jet Express, just a block north of The Boat House has guaranteed late night return service to the mainland in both Port Clinton and Sandusky for those not staying over night.

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."
