Classical Blast
 
Welcome

Classical Blast is a unique band dedicated to bringing the classical arts to mainstream rock & pop music. We’re classically trained musicians who love to rock… we’re rock musicians who love all kinds of music! We believe music has no boundaries. We also believe in the power of the arts to inspire, to educate, to uplift, to effect change, even to heal. We use our spare time to teach or to perform at hospitals to help positively change the energy for those dealing with illness. We apply these concepts to our live shows by performing whatever we enjoy playing. Who says we have to stick with one genre?

Classical Blast blurs musical lines, melding classical music into classic rock hits or rocking music by Beethoven, Bach and composers from other centuries, sometimes adding original lyrics. From Bach to classic rock to metal to pop, we hope you’ll find our approach to music a refreshing change. It’s the past, present & future all brought together in perfect harmony! An evening with Classical Blast is a total blast for any age! Join us for the ride...

Got your CD yesterday… two words:  Ah Mazing! OMG, I need to order more! First time I’ve been at the very beginning of what is sure to be a success story!

From Rock to Bach: A Musical Metamorphosis

We recently launched our new “From Bach to Rock” show and what great response we’ve had so far, from high school students to concert goers. Video coming soon. Watch for more of these special shows coming to a concert venue near you, and catch us all around the Midwest this coming summer with other music! We’re also working on a new Christmas CD and series of holiday concerts, so more to come on those too.

In the meantime, let’s celebrate the summer season! Check out our list of upcoming shows.

While I've followed ELO Part 2 & The Orchestra since 1992, I've never encountered an opening band that thrilled me in any way close to how they do… Until Classical Blast. You have an amazing amount of talent and vision and I'm in love with Metamorphosis. I cried through the end of Kings Speech which featured that Symphony. It's very powerful and you did something very moving with it.” — Cassie Coburn

 

"You guys rocked out as usual! Perfect opening band for The Orchestra!”
— Harry Klimek
