The Wizards of Winter was originally formed in the winter of 2009 as a way to give back to the band's hometown community food pantry that was in dire need of assistance. What was once simply a group of friends looking to help others in need, has now turned into a musical force that crosses the nation each year.
Two of the original founders, Scott and Sharon Kelly still perform in the group till this day. The quality of their original music combined with its message, has attracted world class talent from groups like The Trans- Siberian Orchestra, The Irish Tenors, Blue Oyster Cult, Rainbow, Alice Cooper Band and Broadway who now join them on stage.
Audiences ranging in age from 8 to 80 have come to make the band's Holiday Rock Opera part of their family tradition, by coming to see it year after year.
