The Monday Night Blues series offers a double header July 31 — the show features performances by both Tweed Funk and the Sean Chambers Band starting 6 p.m. in the upstairs music room of Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Admission will be $20 at the door.

Tweed Funk is performing in eight states this summer as the band returns to stage on a regular basis, following Joseph "Smokey" Holman's successful stem cell transplant (for multiple myeloma) last fall. The tour of concerts, clubs and festivals began last month in Chicago; and a first tour in Europe is scheduled for March. Formed in late 2010, Tweed Funk has been an integral part of the “soul-revival” movement with its own style of Memphis flavored soul, roots, and blues. Holman, who recorded under Curtis Mayfield in the early 1970s, was nominated for a 2016 Living Blues Award for Most Outstanding Blues Singer; and the band’s latest album, "Come Together," was a nominee for the Blues Foundation's Best Self Produced CD award.

Florida guitarist Sean Chambers is touring with a new album, “Trouble & Whiskey,” delivering a new infusion of his acclaimed American blues/soul/country/rock sound. The former guitarist and bandleader for the legendary Hubert Sumlin was named one of the top 50 blues guitarists of the last century by Britain's Guitarist magazine. Now a solo artist, Chambers is known for his gritty blues-rock songwriting and beyond-his-years guitar playing.

On Aug. 7, the series offers another double-band show featuring J.P. Soars and Albert Castiglia; and starting at 6 p.m. ($20). For more information, visit northatlanticbluesfestival.com and click on the Time Out Blues link; call 596-6055 or email bluesman@midcoast.com.
