BLEND is the a cappella doo-wop group
bringing back hits from the 50's and 60's with a twist of fun! They
make very clear in their frivolous act that they love what they do.
Blend was formed at John A. Logan College as a minor
project that quickly blossomed into the makings of a successful
career for its four members. "We started in 2005 for a talent show
and ended up winning it. From there, we found we had a unique sound.
So, we decided to pursue it as a career," said Estes. The real
strength of Blend lies in their ability to entertain crowds of all
ages with their renditions of songs which most everyone has heard at
one point or another all while keeping a Christian undertone. On top
of their classic doo-wop routine they are also a deeply spiritual
group and love to share their gospel music as well.
In 2008, Blend appeared as special guests at the
Dick Clark American Band Stand Theater in Branson, Missouri. This
led to an offer to perform their show in Branson at the Gene
Williams Country Music Theater on a regular basis. However, the
timing was not right. Blend had to decline the great opportunity due
to their dedication to their education.
