A little about BLEND
BLEND...the a cappella quartet bringing back all of those fun-loving memories from the 50ʼs and 60ʼs with a fun twist. BLEND mixes the great music of yesteryear with todayʼs comedy. Fun for all ages, BLEND is a show you will not want to miss!

Their Story...
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. Johnathan Estes of the group says, "We started over eleven years ago for a talent show, and ended up winning. From there, found we had a unique sound, so we decided to pursue it as a career." The real strength of BLEND lies in their ability to entertain crowds of all ages with their energy, humor, renditions of songs which most everyone has heard at some time, all while keeping a Christian undertone. In addition to their classic doo-wop routine, they are also a deeply spiritual group who loves to share their gospel music as well.

The group has performed at churches with their gospel arrangements and has wowed crowds far and wide at venues such as fairs, festivals, and performing arts centers with their amazing a cappella version of hits from the 50ʼs and 60ʼs. In 2008, BLEND appeared as special guests at the Dick Clark American Bandstand Theater in Branson, Missouri. This led to an offer to perform their show in Branson at the Gene Williams Country Theater on a regular basis; however, the timing for that was not right. BLEND had to decline that great opportunity due to their dedication to educational responsibilities and pursuits.

While 2008 proved to be a successful year for them, the group made some changes to the presentation of their show. Developing a show 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 to states like Minnesota and South Dakota. The show quickly gained attention as audiences across the midwest grew fond of the sounds and entertainment that these four guys bring to the stage with each performance. Due to this overwhelmingly positive response, BLEND was offered the opportunity to perform full-time in the cities of Hannibal, Missouri as well as Paducah, Kentucky in 2010. The group, however, has continued to travel the country in order to be heard more broadly.

After making several appearances throughout the years in Hot Springs, Arkansas, the city proudly welcomed BLEND to present daily shows at the Vienna Theatre during the summer season of 2011 and 2012. In 2014, they were asked to perform regularly at the Five Star Dinner Theatre. Nestled in the heart of Hot Springs, BLEND quickly became a "must-see" show. This success has continued for the group in the past few years as they have traveled and performed in spots all over the country. BLEND has worked with various artists, and can be seen performing backup vocals on Ronnie McDowellʼs show as well as on his album entitled, "Iʼm Gonna Dance with the Ones that Brought Me." Come see for yourself why people across the country are raving about the very entertaining a cappella quartet from Southern Illinois. You wonʼt be disappointed!
