The Blenders have been thrilling audiences along the Gulf Coast with their distinctive mix of funk, soul, and rhythm and blues for the past seven years. They will be showcasing their talents at Bands on the Beach on Tuesday, August 29 from 7-9 p.m. at the Gulfside Pavillion.
This four-piece band is powered by the soulful vocal, saxophone and guitar work of Blane Butler. He’s also the guitarist and tenor sax player. On bass is Joe Long, who for years has provided solid, energetic rhythm to several successful Gulf Coast bands. Drummer and vocalist Don Tucker played for years in the Los Angeles area and, along with Long, functions as the kicking heartbeat of the band. The bands newest member is John Link on keyboard, saxophone and vocals. His impressive credentials include several years as a band leader in the United States Air Force.
Spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to the pavilion area. No pets are allowed and glass is prohibited. Concerts are provided and organized by the Santa Rosa Island Authority.
