    The blender made a comeback today, Thursday, on the main stage of Himos Juhannus after 13 long years. The audience welcomed the favorite band of the moans.

    The blender started with the song You belong to me tonight and the spectators, without hesitation, embarked on a roaring chant in the evening sun.

    – We now have an hour, so let’s put it flat on the floor. Remember that Blender is a dance band, Blender’s soloist Otto Grundström fooled the audience with their speeches.

    – Now it’s time to pull again! Grundström shouted into the mic.

    The audience played with the songs – they jumped, pulled on a hose, and hanged out with friends.

    The song received a particularly loud reception All young types. Grundström urged the audience to prepare to rock before the song began, and the festival crowd did the work as instructed. Grundström got to admire the stage as the audience sang the chorus of the hit song on her behalf.

    – C’mon Himos, the blender’s beaker said.

    The evening ended with a song awaited by the audience The world is Yours.

    – We still have one rally, I meant to say that this is quite old but all of them are quite old, Grunström backed up laughing at the last song of the evening.

    The blender members thanked the audience and left the stage. The audience was left shouting the encore, after which the band members returned to perform the song The road is light for a moment and To contact Elli.
