B is for Blend.  Recently the group Blend was in concert here in my hometown at the Ouachita Little Theater.    Blend started at John A. Logan College in 2005 for a talent show and ended up winning it. From there, they decided to pursue it as a career.  The real strength of Blend lies in their ability to entertain crowds of all ages with songs which most everyone has heard at one point or another.  On top of their classic doo-wop routine they are also a deeply spiritual group and love to share their gospel music as well.

I really enjoyed the concert.  Blend is an acappela group, they use no instruments or pre-recorded music.  What you get is just some guys singing and having a good time.  They put on a very entertaining show and kept the audience involved, often coming down off of the stage and singing in the audience.

Some of the songs on their setlist included, Chain Gang, Duke of Earl, Pretty Women, Come Go With Me, Get a Job, Book of Love and Blue Moon.

If Blend ever comes back to Mena I will plan on going to see them again.

The ABC Wednesday Meme is a fun way to see some great blogs.
