DARK SIDE OF THE YULE
Christmas Meets Classic Rock in Classical Blast’s Dark Side of the Yule special holiday concert production. This may be one of the most unique Christmas musical experiences you’ll hear, with a mix of new, traditional and surprising. Dark Side of the Yule provides a new take on traditional carols, rocking them and mashing with rock music from the 60s to current, while exploring some of the darker themes of the holiday season. All music is performed on a mix of classical & rock instruments and featuring multiple guest vocalists.
Dark Side of the Yule includes music by Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Simon& Garfunkle, Joni Mitchell, The Pogues, Moody Blues Metallica, and so more, all mashed with Christmas classics, medieval carols, original music, classical and more. This definitelyisn’t grandma’s Christmas show, yet she’s sure to love it too! There’s something for the entire family.
“Classical Blast gives Christmas atwisted glow.”

“A new holiday classic!”
— Tom Lounges, Midwest Beat, WLPR Radio
“Classical Blast wowed the crowd with their symphonic renditions of Jimi Hendrix's “All Along the Watchtower,” Guns 'n Roses' “Sweet Child O Mine,” and a track from their Christmas CD that mashed up the well known “Carol of the Bells” with the theme from “Game of Thrones!!”
— Kent Kotal,Forgotten Hits Magazine
