Phlocking Reunion, aka Halfway to Phlocking in Port Clinton, Ohio. January 26th – 28th, 2018


January 26th – 28th, 2018

Updated Jan 20th, 2018. 9 pm

We have some changes to our entertainment schedule. Due to his recent heart attack, Bob Banerjee will not be with us in Port Clinton next weekend. On Friday night, John McCann (aka Corned Beef) will be performing solo. The show starts at 8 P.M. Saturday, we’ll have Mr. Phlocking, Johnny Rodriguez at 2 P.M., with John McCann and Boudreaux’s Back Porch for our evening shows. You all know anything can happen during this session, so we’re hoping to see J. Hanson on stage with Johnny at some point, and that Johnny will stay thru for some of the evening performance, too. Stay warm – see you Friday, 4 P.M. for Happy Hour at Catawba Island Brewing.

In case you haven’t heard, the bridge over the inlet beside the Jet Express is closed for construction. So, you can’t get to the hotel directly from the town of Port Clinton. If you are coming in from the East (Cleveland side) on route 2, you will have to pass the first Port Clinton exit and go 2 more exits to the one for route 163 and then follow 163 back east to arrive at the Commodore Perry (don’t take the first one marked route 53, it will take you into downtown Port Clinton and you can’t get to the hotel from there!!!!)

Join us in beautiful Port Clinton, OH, at Mr. Ed’s Bar and Grille for the annual “Phlocking Reunion” party (aka “Halfway to Phlocking”) taking place on January 26 and 27, 2018. Our host hotel is the Commodore Perry Inn & Suites in Port Clinton. Phone 1-866-385-3101, and be sure to request the special “PHLOCKERS” rate. Make your reservation as soon as possible before this special rate expires! This party is a great way to spend a winter weekend with good friends, good food, good music, even an indoor pool, and you never need to leave the building!

Like always, there is NO registration fee or cover charge for this event. There will be raffles with proceeds going to charity. Please remember, we ALWAYS appreciate prize donations for the raffles. This is a great way to get rid of all those unwanted holiday grab bag gifts you received!

Friday –
4 P.M. Happy Hour at Catawba Island Brewing, Port Clinton. This will be our third year for this party and it grows every year. Leave work at noon and meet us at the Brewery.
8 P.M. John McCann will take the stage at Mr. Ed’s for another anything-can-happen night.

Saturday –
2 P.M. Mr. Phlocking, Johnny Rodriguez, takes the stage. Johnny is a one-of-a-kind talent and is a long-time Phlocking favorite.
Following Johnny’s show, we have Toledo’s finest, Beaudreaux’s Back Porch, led by singer/songwriter j. hanson, This band is ready to rock the house with their very special style of music. 

Evening – A Phlocking tradition, Beaudreaux’s, Corned Beef and Curry and Johnny Rod join forces for the best jam session in Port Clinton. When these musicians are on stage together, things get crazy!

A few early birds will arrive in Port Clinton on Thursday afternoon and plan to kick off the weekend at Firelands Winery, followed by a trip to McCarthy’s Irish Pub. We’re still working on a pre-happy hour outing on Friday. We’ll keep you informed.

See you at Mr. Ed’s!

2016 Phlocking details

Good news phriends! Thanks to our friends at Put-in-Bay’s Reel Bar, the 22nd annual Phlocking of the Phaithful is still on with a revised plan!
The Reel Bar has booked a slate of great entertainment for this year’s Phlocking ! And we still have at least some of the originally planned entertainers on board.
Appearing Thursday through Saturday will be John Reno (Gulf Shores), Mike Broward (from Stars on the Water band, solo artist- from Nashville) and Toledo’s Boudreaux’s Back Porch, featuring J Hanson, formerly of the Junkanoo Brothers!
Good news! There will be no need for advance registration ! As stated in Steve’s earlier notice, if you had already registered, you’ll be getting your refund from Steve in the next few weeks.

This year there will simply be a $10 cover charge per day! If you see one show on any given day during the weekend, your $10 cover will apply to that entire day’s entertainment. The schedule will be set up to allow for time to catch other great performers on the island, including longtime Phlocking entertainers Bob Banerjee & Corned Beef & Curry @ the Boardwalk on Friday and Saturday nights !

Our friend Ray Fogg has graciously agreed to cancel his Friday night show to make room for us. But, for those who still want to catch Ray’s show, he will still appear at Reel Bar on Saturday night!

It is still being worked out, but John Reno will likely be doing a special pre-phlocking party show on Wednesday night. Also, we will cap things off Sunday by bringing back the songwriters brunch!

The Reel Bar has an excellent sound system. It is an intimate showroom offering a great opportunity to hear these acts and just the right size for us Phlockers to fill the place up! It holds up to about 100. Have you been to PIB, but not sure where Reel bar is? It is located right around the corner from Beer Barrel Saloon, and across the street from the grocery/beverage store, and the Level 2 night club. For PIB old timers, its the old Tony’s Place. The food is great and they have a nice selection of craft brews on tap!
Address is 461 Catawba avenue. Web site is: reel bar dot com or find them here on FB

If you haven’t already, book your lodging reservations and get ready to party with your phriends!

More info and exact schedules will follow soon!

Big thanks to Ray Fogg & Andy @ the Reel Bar for keeping the Phlocking alive ! Hope to see many of you there @ Put in Bay, June 9-12 !!

The Sauce Boss returns to Cleveland

Bill “Sauce Boss” Wharton brings his own hot sauce to every gig, and he cooks a big pot of gumbo, while smoking his slide guitar. At the end of the Show, everyone gets a bowl. Now he’s added some new flavors to the “stew”. Sauce Boss not only plays slide, sings his tamales off, makes gumbo, and feeds everybody… he also plays a drum kit with his feet. “You take that 53 Telecaster, pump it through that 48 Fender amp, add a bass rig, mix in some drums, all simmered down over some funky swamp blues, and smothered with gumbo, and you got a recipe for the largest one-man band on the planet.”

Jimmy Buffett sings a song about him. Parrotheads love him. The gumbo – heaven on earth.

Come join us, as we hear the Sauce Boss sing the blues, and do some story telling. He will play for gumbo.

Saturday, June 27th, 2015. 9pm

812 Huron Road East, Cleveland, OH (United States) – Map
(216) 902-4663

$10 donation at the door.

Kid Conch House Concert


Presented by the North Coast Parrot Head Club.

Bring a chair, bring some drinks, bring some phriends. Kid Conch is coming to town.  He will be at the No Name Yard in Brunswick, Ohio, on June 18th.. 7pm.

Open to all club members and their guests.

Part beach bum, part hippie, part gypsy, part country boy, Kid Conch’s music spans genres, but reflects his love of the tropical lifestyle, blending beach rock and surf rock, reggae and calypso, Cajun and blues, R&B and soul, country and western, and rock and roll into a signature sound based around his dynamic, soul-filled guitar playing. He’s as comfortable strumming a steel-string acoustic guitar at a sidewalk cafe as he is slinging an electric guitar in front of show band.

If you need the address or directions, please contact us:
