  CROSSTOWN 2 Blues duo is now comprised of Gary Rubinstein on guitar & vocals, and Bob Lesher, on harmonica & vocals. Gary and Bob have worked together, playing Blues on stage, and in the recording studio, with various bands since 1991.

  In taking over the guitar chair in 2015, Gary has added a second vocal to the duo, along with slide-guitar, and a new range of material. He worked and recorded a CD with The Lifters, a Blues band he and Bob were part of, 1993-95. The band later appeared at the 1995 Doheny Blues Festival. Outside Crosstown 2, Rubinstein is musically very busy, being involved with three different band projects

  Lesher is a founding member of Tupelo Blue and has been in Crosstown 2 since it's inception. He has been a working musician and songwriter since 1965, playing in Canada and the Southern California area.

  The semi-acoustic duo plays a mix of Chicago-style Blues, Jazz & Swing.

  Crosstown 2 was formed, out of Tupelo Blue, in mid-2011 to play venues that could not accommodate a full band. The concept has been successful and the duo has performed very steady in the OC/LA areas since its inception. This includes venues such as The Lumberyard Restaurant, in Laguna Beach, The Blue Beet, in Newport Beach, OC Wine Mart in Yorba Linda & Aliso Viejo, The Marine Room, in Laguna Beach, and The Packing House, in Anaheim. For over two years, Crosstown 2 has been on monthly rotation at both Alta Coffee & Cafe, in Newport Beach, and Bourbon Street Restaurant..

New CD, 'Pacific Avenue Blues', containing 13 original tunes, is now available, for $10
