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 occasionally played with Aaron Comins (keyboards, sax) during that time.  At Local 269's blues jam sessions, they all met Dave Gerstein (bass) and Lyall Croft (drums), who shared their love for the blues, rock, country, pop, R'n'B, and rockabilly.  All the photos below were taken during rehearsals in the fall of 2013 at NYC's AM Rehearsal Studios.
