BlueBird
Bob and Leigh have worked as a duo for over 25 years with a large and varied repertoire, often performing in Leigh's hometown, New York City.  Here's BlueBird at the Back Fence in Greenwich Village, NYC, where, for years, they regularly hosted a popular Open Mic for poets and musicians.

They performed around the city with the King Biscuit Blues Band, then formed a combo called Jukebox Jamboree -- Leigh, Bob, Zebra (drums) and Steve Zavack (bass) -- which featured Leigh's country-styled vocals. (pictured at right)

A second incarnation of Jukebox Jamboree featured Leigh, Bob, George Roberts (drums) and Alan Allen (bass).  Jukebox Jamboree played in the NY, NJ, area for several years before the band members moved on to other projects.

As Bob and Leigh travelled around the US, they performed at numerous clubs and cafes. Here there are, in late 1993, while performing at a party gig in Connecticut.

BlueBird has been working in the studio this year, re-mixing and mastering tracks for its first-ever CD, "Bluebird At MY Window" -- and the CD will include 12 songs that have been Leigh's and Bob's favorites for many years, as well as one of Leigh's original songs.

The tracks were recorded in 2007 on a single stereo mic, and Bob added bass to the tracks (or mandolin, or shaker percussion to some tracks.)  Bob says "the tracks have a bounce and vitality that make them worth sharing."  The CD will be released soon.  We hope you'll enjoy them as much as we enjoy performing them!
