2015 Boston Music Award Nominee Willie J. Laws has has traveled the world making music for over 25 years. The influences heard in the music of the Willie J. Laws Band are many and eclectic. There are deep roots in Texas music tradition and uniquely American roots music.

Raised in the Gulf Coast of Texas, Willie J. developed his "funky blues" guitar and vocal sound, influenced by Texas Blues and R&B, Tex-Mex Tejano/Conjunto, Louisiana Zydeco, and Country.

Fans call him "the Real Deal". His work over the past 25 years includes performing as the house band for The House of Blues in both Las Vegas and New Orleans, and as well as Margaritaville in the "Crescent City". He performs nationally and internationally with the Grammy award-winning Tejano band "Los Texmaniacs". While living in Texas, Louisiana, Nevada, and California he repeatedly opened for BB King, Etta James, Buddy Guy, Willie Nelson, Hall & Oates, Lynyrd Skynyrd and numerous others. Willie was mentored by, and toured throughout the US with, the late Blues great and Texan, Phillip Walker, which you also hear in Willie's playing style. Willie now lives in Massachusetts, travels from NH to NYC to Texas and beyond, and plays hardcore, authentic Blues with a twist of Zydeco, R&B and Funk.

ABOUT JOE MOSS

Few blues performers walk the walk to the degree of Chicago based guitarist/bandleader Joe Moss. One of the hardest working performers on the scene today. Not just an imitator of the music's glorious past, he strives to find his own sound and material within the styles he chooses to play. And the music world is taking notice. In 2013 Moss was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. The band is tight, featuring some of Chicago's finest blues musicians. A talented singer, writer, and guitarist, Joe is a consistent and entertaining performer with a monster groove.

2013 Inductee into the Blues Hall of Fame!
A guitarist since the age of 10, Moss was given his passport into the blues world by Buddy Scott, who noticed Moss at a jam session at Rosa's Blues Lounge in Chicago. Soon, Moss was playing seven nights a week as a member of Buddy's Rib Tip band. Moss' guitar skills quickly became notorious on the local scene and made him an in-demand sideman. In 1996 Joe started his own band and has recorded and toured constantly to date. Some of the people he had the pleasure of playing with include: Buddy Guy, Little Milton,Willy "Big Eyes" Smith, Lurrie Bell, Zora Young, Charles Wilson, Lil' Smokey Smothers, Syl Johnson, Big Time Sarah, Barkin' Bill Smith, Lefty Dizz, Magic Slim, A.C. Reed, Billy Branch,Walter Scott, Hollywood Scott, Mike Wheeler, James Wheeler and Little Mack Simmons. Joe has backed these artists all over the world. Joe has recorded 5 Albums with his own band The Joe Moss band.

ABOUT BEANTOWN PASTRAMI

Beantown Pastrami Company is based on the simple premise that a World-Class city like Boston needs a world-class pastrami sandwich - either as good as or better than New York City. We are talking pastrami as it should be - brined, rubbed, smoked and steamed to tender and juicy perfection - and served on fresh baked light rye with perfectly made mustards. As cited in the Boston Globe ("Beantown Pastrami Co. sandwiches give New York a run for its money.")

Now you can get this world-class pastrami in Beverly - ONLY at 9 Wallis!

Beantown Pastrami goes through "a three-hour steaming process that creates meat so tender it has to be hand-carved. Putting it through a conventional deli slicer would result in a pile of pastrami shreds," explains owner, Joe Langhan, a founder of the Food Network.

Since opening several innovations have emerged such as the "PLT" - pastrami, lettuce and tomato (with Dijon mayonnaise), the Pilgrim (fresh roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry compote & mayo) and the "Strami Dog" - an all beef, all natural hot dog (no added nitrates) steamed in pastrami juice, topped with pastrami that comes in several different versions. These include the Rachel Dog (with baby Swiss cheese, fresh made coleslaw, and Russian dressing); the Reuben Dog (with baby Swiss cheese, fresh made sauerkraut, and Russian dressing); or the Spicy Dog (with Jalepeno mustard).
