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!
