Classical Blast








Classical Blast provides a fresh take on rock music, using instruments not typical in today's rock/pop era. Featuring cellist Petar Kecenovici and violinist Jimmy Chaos, both classically trained musicians, Classical Blast brings the classical arts to mainstream rock.
Band leader Petar has toured worldwide with such notable artists as Andrea Bocelli, Dennis DeYoung (Styx), Randy Jackson, Jordin Sparks and Clay Aiken, as well as with groups Cheap Trick, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Mannheim Steamroller, il Divo and others. He has performed for Broadway shows The Lion King and The Color Purple, and at Disney’s Epcot Center. Violinist Jimmy Chaos began studying the violin at age six in New York City, pursuing his training in classical music. Through meeting other musicians and exposure to different types of music, his interest developed in exploring other genres of performance. Since his arrival in Chicago in 2008, Jimmy has performed with a variety of artists and musicians at venues throughout the area.
Classical Blast also consists of the best musical talent and showmanship Chicago has to offer, including vocalist/guitarist, David Kav, and drummer, Glen Kosche. David brings his prodigious energy, soaring vocal talent and guitar skills to Classical Blast. He has a number of original CD projects and has performed in local musical theater productions such as “Man of LaMancha,” “Tommy” and others. Glen previously performed with the popular JP & The Cats and the Tom Carey Band. Glen later joined Kickbend in 2008, which crafted songs that paid homage to rock legends.

Classical Blast’s style, technique and tools breathe new life into modern music as well as the classics. From Bach to classic rock to contemporary rock & pop, you’ll find their performance exhilarating and their music refreshing. It’s the past, present & future all brought together in perfect harmony! Their influences have no boundaries. An evening with Classical Blast is a total blast for any age!
Performing as a duo, trio or quartet, Classical Blast has the ability to meet any budget and is the perfect choice for concerts, niteclubs, restaurants, hotels, casinos, weddings, private events and more!
