Classical Blast

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!

CB Holiday Show  

A Very Classical Blast Christmas is a Smash!
Many thanks to EVERYONE who helped make our brand new holiday show a smashing success, from the venues & promoters who took a chance on us, to the guest performers (Phil Balsano, Stephanie Tonnemacher, Olivia Ports & Charlotte Harris) who put in so much hard work, to our helpers & volunteers and all those who attended. It’s so gratifying to hear such tremendous feedback. To those that have asked about a CD of that music, we’ll be working on a Christmas album for next year, and the show will be back then too, probably at the same venues as well as additional ones.

Here’s a little taste from the show finale at St Peter’s Episcopal Church in Chicago. More video coming soon!
