Classical Blast

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!

"Classical Blast's new Christmas album won’t fail to impress. In fact, it just might be the most unique holiday album ever!”
 — WGN-TV Morning News



New Year, New Singer, New Music!
It’s a new year and Classical Blast has a new vocalist! Welcome to new our singer-guitarist, Javier Martin Lopez, who comes all the way from Madrid, Spain. Javi performed a couple of songs at our recent holiday concerts, but going forward you’ll see him perform music from our first 2 albums PLUS we’ve got some new music in store for you too. So check our list of upcoming shows and come out to say hello!

Merry Christmas to us!
Classical Blast’s new Dark Side of the Yule concert and album got quite a bit of local (and some national) media attention: articles in a number of local newspapers, radio interviews & appearances, and even a live performance on the WGN-TV Morning News Show. A few songs had almost 30,000 streams on Spotify, plus airplay on a number of 24-hour Holiday Music Internet channels. Two of our concert shows were virtual sellouts, with rave reviews from attending patrons. Watch for a 2017 version of our Dark Side of the Yule concerts next year!
