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 believe in the power of the arts — to inspire, to educate, to uplift, to effect change, even to heal. We often use our time to teach or to perform at hospitals to help positively change the energy for those dealing with illness. We also believe music has no boundaries. We apply these concepts to our live shows by performing whatever we enjoy playing. Who says we have to stick with one genre? Our influences have no boundaries. Classical Blast’s style, technique and tools breathe new life into rock music as well as the classics. 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!

Our Favorite Charity
We believe in the positive power of music & art. That’s one of the reasons we like the work of Caring Arts Foundation. They put that power to work for healing on behalf of local cancer patients of all ages in Chicago area hospitals by bringing art and music to them. We’ve worked with the foundation in local hospitals and we’ve performed the past few years for one of the fundraiser event, Arts in a Roadhouse.

We hope you’ll join us again this year at a new “roadhouse”— the River Grove Moose Lodge (see info at right). We’ll be joined by Cool Rockin’ Daddies to bring you the best of classic rock, each in our own way. So please join us on Sept. 21 at 3pm and check out the work of Caring Arts.

Tickets at the door or call 708-386-9325 to order in advance.


Amazing Summer!
What a summer we’ve had, from our first outdoor concert in Sycamore and our return to the Cantigny Fine Arts Fest (our very first gig as a band), to BIG crowds in Carbondale, Munster, Mount Prospect, RAGBRAI Event in Emmetsburg, IA (25,000 cyclists), Hoffman Estates & Schaumburg, to smaller more intimate shows in Bolingbrook, Warrenville, Joliet History Museum and so many others. We loved every single one! And let’s not forget our “biggest” show, performing the National Anthem at Wrigley Field. That was a BLAST! We’ve made so many new friends and hope there will be many more.

Here’s a quick look at just a few highlights from this summer. And check out this story in the Chicago Tribune from the Bolingbrook show earlier this summer: Read it HERE.
