Rockland — The Monday Night Blues series continues Oct. 16 with Eliza Neals and the Narcotics, playing a 7 p.m. show in the upstairs music room of Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Admission will be $15 at the door.

Dynamic front woman, multi-talented musician, confident producer and powerhouse live performer Eliza Neals sings with unearthly passion and velvety grit, thanks to an operatically trained voice that has been called both sexy and menacing. Neals also studied with Motown legend Barrett Strong and may be the last of the truly trained Motown singers.

In addition, she masterfully plays piano, keys or Hammond B3. Eliza Neals and the Narcotics performs on stages across the United States, from Maine to Florida to Kansas City, delivering a combination of modern electric blues and psychedelic rock, with a twist of jam band and southern soul. As a duo, trio or full-blown band, Neals delivers compelling storytelling, blues-rock Detroit style.

Next up in the weekly series are: Oct. 23, Memphis Lightning Band ($10); Oct. 30, Halloween Party with Harper ($15); Nov. 6, Ghost Town Blues Band ($15); Nov. 13, Chris O'Leary Band ($10); Nov. 20, Mississippi Heat Band ($15); Nov. 27, Studebaker John Band ($15); Dec. 4, Road to Memphis fundraiser for Between Dead Stations ($10); and Dec. 11, Blues Year Eve Party with Maurice John Vaughn Band ($15; dress-up last show of the year).
