Rhythm Street are a Vancouver based rockin' blues band. The trio's members are Jeff Johnston (bass & vocals), Pat Axe (guitar & vocals) and Ricky McDonald (drums & vocals).
Jeff was born and began playing music in St. Mary's, Ontario, before coming out west in 1970. He performed with "A Day In Our Lives". The nickname "Spaceman" came about. Then he went to Quebec in 1973 and performed and recorded with "Dominique Tremblay" and also sat in with "John Lee Hooker". Back in British Columbia in 1978, Jeff played with "The Muddy Fraser Band", "MTL" and other local bands. His rockin' bass style and energy have dubbed him "Rockin Jeff Johnston".
Pat was born in Toronto, Ontario. He played around Toronto and Southern Ontario for 15 years before moving to Vancouver, BC, in 1973. He has performed locally at all major clubs with different bands.
Ricky was born in Windsor, Ontario and has earned the nickname "Rimshot Machine Gun" for his hard driven rock & blues back beat drumming. He has been in Vancouver, BC, since 1977 and has performed with many local bands such as "Grand Slam Blues Band".
