The A cappella Group Blend will be entertaining at the Scotland County Care Center on Monday, October 19th at 2:00 p.m.
Blend mixes music of the 50’s and 60’s with their own twist of fun. They were formed at John A. Logan College over ten years ago for a talent show and ended up winning it. From there, they found their own unique sound and decided to pursue it as a career. The group has the ability to entertain crowds of all ages 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.
During a very successful year in 2008, the group made some changes to the presentation of their show. Developing a show that was fit for performing arts centers with a bit of nostalgic and unique flair, Blend began touring as far south as Florida and into the northern part of the country in states like Minnesota and South Dakota. The show quickly gained attention as audiences across the Midwest grew fond of the sound and show that the four guys brought to the stage. Due to the overactive response, Blend had options of placing the show full time in the cities of Hannibal, MO and Paducah, KY in 2010.
After making several appearances through the years in Hot Springs, Arkansas, the city proudly welcomed Blend to present shows daily at the Vienna Theatre through the summer season of 2011 and 2012, as well as 2014 at the Five Star Dinner Theatre. The success has continued for the group in the last few years as they have traveled throughout the country. Blend has worked with various artists, and can be seen on Ronnie McDowell’s show as backup vocalists.
Come see for yourself why Blend is a must see show! Everyone is welcome!
