Classical Blast! band live at the Joliet Museum! 

Classical Blast band live at the Joliet Museum's Summer Concert Series on Thursday, August 10th

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!

A melding of classical and classic rock, the show explores the many links between todays rock music and the famed classical composers, from Bach to Beethoven, Handel and others, along with their influence on modern artists like The Beatles, The Police, Queen, Pink Floyd, Procol Harem, and so many others. It’s a wild ride through the ages that totally rocks out!
