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 !!
