Anchorage-based band with Kodiak connections will bring its mix of classic rock
and country-inspired music to Kodiak next week after the release of its first CD.
Joe Lind, frontman and co-founder of Premium Blend along with his brother, bass
player Pat Lind, said the two lived in Kodiak for about five years in their
youth when their father was a crab fisherman. The two brothers are also former
commercial fishermen themselves.

used to be commercial ... having a lot of friends.")
Lind said the band
has been together for nearly 18 years, but that until now, they've performed
primarily as a cover band. They're now making their first foray into original
music. He also said he's looking forward to returning to Kodiak, where he has
performed before with other groups, but not with Premium Blend. He's excited
about treating the Kodiak audience to a fun evening of live music and dancing.
-- (Premium Blend 2 38
finally got around to ... dance some more.")
Blend will perform songs off its newly released CD, "6 More," live at the El
Chicano bar on February 13th and will perform at a private Valentine's Day
dinner and dance engagement at the Coast Guard base the next night.
