Comments Off on BLEND is a Cappella 50’s-60’s Doo-Wop Group in Bryant Indiana
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 four 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 [...]

Comments Off on Rich Little the Comedian at Bearcreek Farms in Indiana July 13th
Dear Friends, On Saturday July 13th, Bearcreek Farms will be presenting legendary Hollywood comedian impressionist Rich Little at 2pm and 7:30pm. I’m sure you remember as I do Rich Little’s numerous television appearances over the years including The Johnny Carson Show, and the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast specials. Rich Little got his start in 1964 on The Judy Garland Show. Back in September our technical director Dennis Butts and I had the chance to see Rich Little while in Las Vegas scouting entertainment. Of course Rich Little is known for being “The Man of 1000 Voices” – and even after all these years Rich Little has gone to great lengths to keep the cornerstone of his act -doing the voices- fresh, new and relevant by creating a brand new show that plays nightly at the LVH (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton). And it’s this new show that he will be presenting at Bearcreek Farms. [...]
