Coastal Blend is now PREMIUM BLEND!

Premium Blend - l-r Nancie Barker (baritone), Ian Blackwood (lead),
Robert Statsinger (bass), Dale Summer (tenor)

Coastal Blend sang together for 5 or 6 years. When bass Dan Jett retired in 2016, we took some time off to regroup. Knowing we didn't want to stop singing, we called on bass Robert Statsinger, and came back strong as Premium Blend! We still sing a wide variety of music including, barbershop, Doo Wop, Western, Folk, Humorous, Love songs, and more.  We love to sing and have fun.  We sing for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, funerals, parties of all sorts, seasonal events, civic events and just about anytime we can!!!!
