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 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.
