Premium Blend just registered in July, 2011, but 3 of the 4 quartet members have been singing together since 2005 as "GEMTONES".
The members of this quartet reside in the communities of Woodland, West Sacramento, Penn Valley, and Vacaville, California. All are members of the Sacramento Valley Chorus!
Tenor, Carrie Falk, has been a Sweet Adeline for ten years. She is a tenor "vocal leader". She lives in Woodland with her husband and three of her six children (she has five boys and one girl) ages 10 to 24. She works two bookkeeping jobs, one for her family business (Vander Hamm-Goodyear in Davis) with Rich, her husband of 26 years, and oldest two sons. Also, at Beers Book Center in Sacramento. In her spare time (what spare time?), she enjoys decorating her home and attending all of the kids' sporting and school events. (Unless of course it conflicts with singing, ha ha.) In May 2009, she became a mother-in-law and loves her new "daughter" very much.
Lead, Lynne Erickson, has been a member of Sweet Adelines for over 30 years. She works with the US Army Corps of Engineers as a budget analyst. She's married to Dan (33 years) has two grown sons, John and Matt, a gorgeous daughter in law, Edith, and two of the most beautiful grandchildren in the world, Jennifer (12) and Jonathan (5). In April of 2007, Lynne decided she didn't have enough to do in her life, so she took on the role of director of Sacramento Valley Chorus. Singing with Premium Blend is the icing on the cake!
Baritone, Lynnette Lewis, has been in Sweet Adelines for eleven years. She is a baritone "vocal leader", Front Row choreographer, and the one to go to for ALL chorus learning tapes/CD's. When she's not singing, she's driving a school bus for Forest Lake Christian School and working for Weight Watchers. Lynnette lives in Penn Valley with her husband Tom (24 years) and their children Spencer, 17, and Amanda, 15.
