The WIZARDS OF WINTER are a 12-member ensemble performing classical and progressive-influenced rock music woven throughout a theatrical holiday-themed show. While the group’s style is undoubtedly inspired by the genius of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO), the WIZARDS OF WINTER offer a diverse array of unique, original material with broad audience appeal performed in an a more intimate setting.
In addition to current WIZARDS OF WINTER and former TSO members Tony Gaynor and Guy LeMonnier who joined the band in 2013, former TSO members Joe Cerisano, Michael Lanning and Tommy Farese have all toured with the band in previous years.
