THE WIZARDS OF WINTER – now in their tenth year – will kick off their annual holiday tour on November 13. The band’s classical and progressive-influenced rock music is woven throughout a theatrical holiday-themed show, performed in an intimate setting.
Each night, THE WIZARDS OF WINTER evoke the spirit of Christmas. The performances showcase soaring vocal harmonies, precision string instrumentation, outstanding guitar leads, powerful percussion and stunning keyboard work – taking the listener on a musical journey, covering many genres from pop to progressive rock. Previous tours have seen THE WIZARDS OF WINTER performing their brand of theatrical yuletide rock to tens of thousands of attendees and have grabbed the attention of mainstream media such as Entertainment Weekly and Yahoo Music. The ensemble’s singles have also been aired on SiriusXM Holly.
THE WIZARDS OF WINTER‘s upcoming third album, The Christmas Dream, contains 10 new original songs and is a rocking holiday sleigh ride that crosses musical boundaries from prog metal to contemporary, appealing to a broad and diverse audience. The Christmas Dream is THE WIZARDS OF WINTER‘s strongest release thus far.
THE WIZARDS OF WINTER feature former members of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Rainbow, Blue Oyster Cult, Ted Nugent and The Irish Tenors and have added even more new talent to their ranks this year, including violinist and backup vocalist Kornelia Rad (Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra), lead vocalist and auxiliary keyboardist Alexis Smith, and last but not least, lead guitarist Steve Brown (Trixter, Def Leppard, Dennis DeYoung, Rock of Ages).
