Minneapolis, MN — The holiday season has a number of traditions: visits with Santa, baking Christmas cookies, and the Blenders Holiday Concerts. Well due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Blenders aren’t able to do their usual holiday tours this year, so they are bringing the music to you! Originally based out of Fargo, but now out of the Twin Cities, the Blenders have been performing A Capella style music for more than 30 years, but are especially known for their holiday tunes. Band member Tim Kasper says it feels odd this year not being able to tour the Midwest performing their favorite Christmas tunes.

Although it was never originally the plan, the Blenders and holiday music over the years have became a natural fit. As the band progressed, Kasper says they focused most of their attention in that direction due to the success of their first Christmas album, Dog, which was released in 1997.

But the Blenders didn’t want fans to go an entire year without the opportunity to take in one of their usual holiday performances, so Kasper says they teamed up with Bell State Bank to give the fans the opportunity to see live, virtual performances of their Holiday tunes through a live concert series.

Kasper hopes the by this time next year, things will be back to normal and the Blenders will back out in full force touring the Midwest with their holiday music.
