Each of the members of The Mood Ring has a long, impressive resume with extensive touring experience. They have also toured world-wide with Little Texas, Delbert McClinton, Hal Ketchum, and others. Six like-minded individuals whose sole aim is to bring peace, love and rock to the masses.

Reb Clark (lead vocals, electric guitar)-veteran musician having toured all over the world performing many venues and different cruise lines; guitar styles range from classical to country to rock and everything in between. Jon Putnam (lead vocals, bass)-veteran musician having toured all over the world with artists such as Delbert McClinton and Billy Dean.

 “Growing up in the 70’s I was introduced to the greatest decade of music. If you are a fan of the Eagles, the Edgar Winter Group, Fleetwood Mac, or one of my favorites Wild Cherry, you should check out the “Mood Ring”. If you are in Nashville, let the “Mood Ring” show you that Nashville is not just country music. Nashville is full of great music, and the “Mood Ring” delivers some of the best that Nashville can offer. I will see you there!”
