Blues fest faves return to Rockland

Aug 08, 2019
Rick Estrin

ROCKLAND — The weekly Monday night blues series continues Aug. 19 with Rick Estrin and the Nightcats in the upstairs music room of Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Doors open 6 p.m. and the music starts 7 p.m. Admission will be $20 at the door.

Those who missed — or want to relive — this summer’s blues fest have a second chance to experience Rick Estrin and the Nightcats, who performed on the fest’s first day. The award-winning San Francisco Bay-area blues band is a month away from releasing its their fifth Alligator Records album, “Contemporary.” With Estrin's harmonica virtuosity and sly soulful vocals, Christoffer Kid Andersen's wildly inventive guitar, Lorenzo Farrell's masterful keyboards and Derrick “D’Mar” Martin's funky, creative drumming, the band takes Estrin’s ingenious, original songs to new and unexpected places as it continues to reinvent traditional blues styles.

Next up in the weekly series is Paul Nelson, Aug. 26. For more information, visit or check out the Facebook page.
