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 performed with Aaron Comins (keyboards, sax) during that time.  At NYC's watering hole, Local 269, which hosted blues jam sessions, they all met Dave Gerstein (bass) and Lyall Croft (drums), who shared their love for the blues, classic rock, country, pop, R'n'B, and rockabilly.  All these archived photos show Blue Rhythm Sandwich during their rehearsals at NYC's UltraSound Studio or AM Rehearsal Studios, or at live performances at Desmond's Tavern or Neirs' Tavern.  Aaron worked with BLUE RHYTHM SANDWICH as their keyboard player until moving on to other projects.
