BLUE RHYTHM SANDWICH coalesced into a band in 2012, out of the NYC blues jam scene. Leigh Harrison (vocals, guitar, percussion) and Bobby Perfect (guitar, vocals) had been playing as a duo for many years, and had worked together in numerous bands.
Both Leigh and Bob had worked together in various blues and rock bands in NYC, when they began hanging out at NYC watering hole, Local 269, which hosted blues jam sessions.
There, they both met Dave Gerstein (bass) and Lyall Croft (drums), who shared their love for the blues, classic rock, country, pop, R'n'B, and rockabilly. These photos show Blue Rhythm Sandwich during rehearsals at NYC's UltraSound Studios, and at Libra Studios, and live perfomances at Otto's Shrunken Head in NYC, and The Ivory Pub in CT.
