The author of Put-in-Bay's official song, "Friends of the Bay", grew up right here in Lakewood, Ohio. Well, sort of. After lots of gigs up and down Madison and Detroit avenues it was off to Fagans in the Flats with his band, Calabash. The addition of Put-in-Bay and Key West soon made it a great annual ciruit. These days there's no need for tour busses or trucks, just a golf cart. That's because almost all of his shows are within a mile of home, up on Put-in-Bay. 
He penned what the Plain Dealer called a working man's classic with the WMMS inspired, "I ain't working for the Man", and Scene magazine called him a local legend. His last cd topped the FM in radio playlists all over Northern Ohio and scored a #1 right here in Cleveland with "No One Knows".
