Ray Flanagan (Facebook) is one of the most talented musicians in Cleveland. You wouldn't know it from talking to him because he comes off pretty reserved, but when he's on a stage playing guitar and singing, it's immediately obvious.

Ray recently signed on to do a monthly gig - a residency - at The Euclid Tavern, which is now owned by the fine people of Happy Dog fame. Ray will be playing the first Sunday of every month from August until the end of 2017 and maybe beyond.
