Classical Blast’s “Dark Side of the Yule” is a one-of-a-kind concert that melds classic rock and Christmas music which are engaging, surprising, and thrilling. With the group’s unique take on traditional carols and classical favorites, Classical Blast has created a one of the most unusual and enjoyable concert experiences ever.  You’ll hear outstanding mashes & medleys like Game of Thrones/Carol of the Bells, Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy/Enter Sandman (Metallica), Greensleeves/Nights in White Satin (Moody Blues), and Sounds of Silence/ Silent Night. You’ll also hear cool-rockin’ versions of other seasonal songs. You’ll get a taste of their “From Bach to Rock,” a combination of classical to classic rock to contemporary pop music, and the influence on artists like The Beatles, The Police, Queen, Pink Floyd, and many others.

Classical Blast has opened for major rock headliners, including The Orchestra (ELO), Stryper, Eagles guitarist Don Felder, Joan Jett, Michael McDonald, and many others.  An evening with Classical Blast is a BLAST for the entire family!
