CLASSICAL BLAST: Dark Side of the Yule

Friday, Dec. 20 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)


Is it Christmas, is it rock, is it pop, is it traditional? It’s all of the above and more!  Christmas Meets Classic Rock in Classical Blast’s live holiday concert, Dark Side of the Yule.

The show melds Christmas and rock music in ways never heard before, mashing up music by Metallica, Evanescence, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel and many others mashed with holiday classics, baroque carols, classical and originals. It’s eye and ear candy the Sugarplum Fairy herself could be proud of.

The high energy show features the world class talents of Bill Syniar (bass), Dave Kelly (drums), Scott Daniel (violin), Kelsee Vandervall (cello) and vocalist-guitarist Sophie Monroy, with Scottish violinist, Katy Gillan and others along for this musical sleigh ride as special guests. This may not be Grandma’s holiday show, but she’s sure to love it too!
