About The WIZARDS OF WINTER:
The WIZARDS OF WINTER are an eclectic group of musicians from the NY/NJ/PA tri-state region who perform classical and progressive-influenced rock music woven throughout a theatrical holiday-themed event. While the group’s style is undoubtedly inspired by the genius of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO), the WIZARDS OF WINTER are far from a TSO tribute band. The the Wizards’ original material is very unique and has a broad audience appeal, applied in a more intimate setting.

As a testament to the virtuosity of the group, several original members of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra have joined The WIZARDS OF WINTER on their musical journey. Currently performing with the group are Guy LeMonnier and Tony Gaynor. Tommy Farese and Michael Lanning, also former members of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, have performed with the band on occasion as well.

The WIZARDS OF WINTER are:
Scott Kelly - Music Director, Keyboards
Steve Ratchen - Bass
Sharon Kelly - Flute, Vocals
Fred Gorhau - Guitar
Mary McIntrye - Keyboards, vocals
Tommy Ference - Drums
TW Durfy - Guitar
Natalia Niarezka - Violin
Guy LeMonnier - vocals
Vincent Jiovino - vocals
Tony Gaynor - Narration
