Blend Acoustic features two guitarists who have graced the Chicago music scene for over 25 years. Sean Cantorna was a member of the successful band Trippin' Billies and his strong vocals remind one of the great Stephen Stills. Neal Alger has toured the world playing jazz music and lends his guitar phrases and background vocals to the duo.
