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 groups 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

GUITAR HERO STEVE VAI, ROCK DRUMMER CARL PALMER
ALLMAN BROS. GUITARIST WARREN HAYNES AND OZZY GUITARIST
ZAKK WYLDE TO JOIN FORCES AT ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FANTASY CAMP
20TH ANNIVERSARY LAUNCH EVENT
LOS ANGELES, FEB. 11-14 2016
2016 marks the 20th Anniversary of Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, and four of the greatest guitarists and a legendary drummer come together in Los Angeles to headline one of the most amazing camp’s ever assembled on Presidents Day/Grammy weekend, Feb. 11-14, 2016. Campers will have the opportunity to meet and jam with guitarists Tony Iommi, Steve Vai, Warren Haynes, Zakk Wylde and drummer Carl Palmer at this once-in-a-lifetime event. In addition, the weekend will culminate with campers and their bands performing at the Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip.
“I’ve really enjoyed working with the students at Coventry University and the ‘Guitar Star’ contestants in England, so I’m looking forward to meeting some more enthusiastic players at the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp in Hollywood,” said Iommi.
“As we approach the 20th Anniversary of Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, we continue to fulfill people’s musical dreams, from beginners to advanced players,” said David Fishof, founder and creator of Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp. “This camp will be a true once-in- a-lifetime experience for any music fan.”
Tony Iommi is a founding member and lead guitar player of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy winning hard rock band, Black Sabbath. He is synonymous with his innovative, de-tuned, dark riffs that are considered the blueprint for hundreds of bands that followed.
Also appearing will be Warren Haynes, who is best known for his work as longtime guitarist with the Allman Brothers Band and founding member of the jam band Gov’t Mule, as well as touring with Phil Lesh and The Dead. Haynes will be joined by Zakk Wylde, who is best known known as the guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, and founder of the band Black Label Society. He was also the lead guitarist and vocalist in Pride & Glory, and as a solo artist he released “Book of Shadows.” In addition, Carl Plummer, one of the most respected rock drummers to emerge from the 1960’s and veteran of famous English bands including Emerson, Lake & Palmer and ASIA, will also headline the camp.
Rounding out the line-up is Grammy Award-winning artist and legendary guitar hero, Steve Vai. He has sold over 15 million albums and has recorded and toured with Frank Zappa, Public Image Ltd., Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth, Whitesnake, and as a solo artist.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is a non-competitive atmosphere designed for all levels of musicians and music enthusiasts. Participants are placed in bands with like-minded people and skill level to make for an off-the-charts experience. The bands will rehearse under the guidance of a rock star counselor including Vinny Appice (Dio), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot), Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns), Vic Johnson (Sammy Hagar), Frankie Banali (Quiet Riot) Bjorn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen) Kane Roberts (Alice Cooper), and Brian Tichy (Whitesnake).
Space is always limited at Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camps to keep the experience intimate. The David Crosby and Ginger Baker hosted camp in Los Angeles on Nov. 5-8, 2015 is completely sold-out. Interested campers should sign up early.
