Dark Side of the Yule:
Christmas Meets Classic Rock

Christmas Meets Classic Rock in Classical Blast’s live holiday concert, Dark Side of the Yule. Now in it’s 6th touring season, Dark Side of the Yule is a popular choice throughout the Midwest. With growing popularity, the band has opened concerts for Joan Jett, ELO, Don Felder of The Eagles, Burton Cummings, Rik Emmet of Triumph, Stryper, and other national acts.

The show melds Christmas and rock music in ways never heard before, with music by bands like Metallica, Evanescence, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel and others, all mashed with holiday classics, baroque carols, classical music and originals. Is it Christmas, is it rock, is it pop, is it traditional? It’s all of the above and more, all rolled into a series of musical stories that explore some of the holiday season’s darker themes. But don’t worry, everyone sees the light by the end!



Classical Blast gives Christmas music a twisted glow
