The Monday night blues series continues Sept. 12 with Andrew Jr. Boy Jones playing from 7 to 10 p.m. in the upstairs music room of Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Admission is $15.

Jones began his professional career at age 16 playing with Freddie King’s backing band, the Thunderbirds. In 1967, he joined R&B/soul singer Bobby Patterson and the Mustangs. During this time, he saw and met session guitar great Cornell Dupree, who used to sit in with Jones and the other musicians. In 1973, blues great King asked Jones to join his band again and they toured excessively with rock groups such as Grand Funk Railroad, Rare Earth, Tower of Power and the Marshall Tucker Band.

In the 1980s, Jones played with an eclectic variety of musicians including Charlie Musselwhite, whose band Jones joined for three albums. Jones began recording his own albums and was nominated for a W.C. Handy award (now the Blues Music Awards). The hard-working bluesman has release five albums and toured Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Chile, England, France, Italy, Lebanon, Monaco, Switzerland and more.

Upcoming this month in the Monday night series are: Sept. 19, a Girls With Guitars show; and Sept. 26, Candye Kane. Admission for these artists is $15.
