The Wizards of Winter are a group of musicians from the Metro NY, NJ, PA region with strong Classical and Progressive Rock influences woven throughout their musical careers.
The band was founded in 2010 by Scott and Sharon Kelly initially to perform the music of The Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) to benefit a local charity. The vision quickly grew and in 2011 the band began recording and performing their own unique original material. The band now has three full-length albums of original material available. They have been featured in USA Today, Entertainment Weekly and other major publications along with performing on Fox, ABC, and CBS. Their music can be found on Pandora, Sirius XM Holly Channel and Music Choice every Holiday season
As word got out about The Wizards original music, it caught the ear of some former members of TSO. Over the years, The Wizards have had the pleasure of touring with six of their former members including Tommy Farese, Guy LeMonnier, Tony Gaynor, Michael Lanning ,Joe Cerisano, and John O'Reilly. Tony Gaynor and John O'Reilly have gone on to become permanent members of The Wizards and tour with the band every year.
Former and current members of other well known Classic Rock acts have now become part of The Wizards as well, including musicians from: Def Leppard, Blue Oyster Cult, Rainbow, Alice Cooper Band, The Irish Tenors, Ted Nugent Band.
2020 will bring new original material, the release of their third studio album, a bigger stage production, and another national Winter tour.
