CB5HiAbout 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?

Fun Facts:

-Members have toured with renowned artists such as Cheap Trick, Dennis DeYoung, Andrea Bocelli, and Sting.

-The band has opened for Joan Jett, ELO, and Don Felder (the Eagles)
