Rockland — The weekly Monday night blues series continues Monday, Nov. 11, with the Willie J. Laws Band in the upstairs music room of Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Doors open 6 p.m., and music starts 7 p.m. Admission is $15 at the door.

Guitar slinger, songwriter and vocalist Willie J. Laws is known as the Real Deal, thanks to his soulful musical mix. Raised in the Gulf Coast of Texas, Laws developed his "funky blues" guitar and vocal sound, influenced by Texas blues and R&B, Tex-Mex Tejano/conjunto, Louisiana zydeco, and country. His career has included performing as the house band for The House of Blues in both Las Vegas and New Orleans, as well as Margaritaville in the Crescent City.

Next up in the weekly series is: Nov. 18, Chris Beard Band ($15); Nov. 25, James Armstrong Band ($15); Dec. 2, TBA; Dec. 9, Memphis Lightning ($10); and Dec. 16, Anthony Gomes Band ($20, year-end dress-up night).
