BELFAST — Celebrated local musician Blind Albert and his band brings their mix of rock and blues to the Underground Lounge Thursday, Feb. 2.

Guitarist Blind Albert (Vincent Gabriel) has spent nearly six decades writing and performing in a career that has led from native New Jersey, through combat duty in Vietnam, to Connecticut, Santa Barbara and Cape Cod before landing him in Midcoast about 30 years ago. His talent led to various collaborations with a host of notable blues artists like Koko Taylor and Junior Wells, plus performances at the North Atlantic Blues Festival. But his first love was rock and roll (the Stones and Elvis were primary influences) and he freely mixes between those genres.

Bassist Glen Dubose and percussionist Jeff Densmore will serve as the drive train for Blind Albert’s roiling originals, punctuated by Gabriel’s slick leads, when they drop in to the Underground Lounge.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10, cash only at the door. The Underground Lounge is located in the basement of the Belfast Maskers Theatre at 17 Court St., known for its coffeehouse vibe (including couches) and a kitchen serving drinks and homemade treats. It hosts indie, folk and pop performers from around the area Thursday evenings.
