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!”

Dark Side of the Yule

Christmas meets Classic Rock!
Winter is coming! And that means our Dark Side of the Yule holiday shows are back at a theater near you! We’ll have new music along with favorites from our album of the same name. Dark Side of the Yule melds classic rock by bands like Evanescence, Simon & Garfunkel, Metallica, Joni Mitchell, Moody Blues and more, all melded with well-known holiday music. There’s simply nothing else like it! Our new singer, Stephanie Koklys, will perform songs she sang on our Dark Side of the Yule album and the rest. "Phunk Phiddler,” Hannah K Watson will be back too, along with guest cellist, Tom Culver. Tom is cellist for the popular Chicago area band, Strung Out.

You don’t want to miss this show! You’ll find a full listing of concerts on our Shows page with ticket links and info. Be sure to order early as most shows have sold out in the past. Tickets for the popular show in Galena during the town’s Luminaria Weekend can be purchased below.

An Old World Holiday Experience
No one celebrates the holidays like the town of Galena, and we’ve made it a tradition to be a part of it! Our Dark Side of the Yule show is the opening event to the town's Luminaria & Living Windows Weekend. This country setting has quaint shops filled with unique gifts, great food & spirits and plenty of winter activities in a beautiful, relaxed atmosphere. It’s the top vacation destination in Illinois.  The streets will be lined with glowing candle-lit bags as our show kicks off the weekend festivities at their historic Turner Hall on Friday night. On Saturday, windows in the shops downtown come ALIVE with holiday scenes and characters. There’s great shopping, Midwest skiing and so much else to do, so make it a weekend… and be sure to include tickets to Dark Side of the Yule!
