The Wholigans make the New York Times crossword puzzle.
The Wholigans capture not only the sound and essence of The Who, but could easily pass for the original members of The Who.
The band concentrates on the ‘Live at Leeds’ era , but their set list contains a majority of the most popular material from The Who’s catalogue from day one until the final days of Keith Moon.
From the stage clothes to the authentic stage gear + capturing the mannerisms of The Who. The Wholigans bring back memories of a Who of yesteryear which has to be seen to be believed.

“The best Who tribute band out there ! ”
“Having seen the WHO in the 70’s perform as warm-up act to Hermans Hermitsand thereafter rise to a pinnacle of success that would instill them as one of the premiere bands to cross the Atlantic during Rock music’s most creative period. I had only to close my eyes to be transported back to that period in my life again, when I first witnessed and photographed a live performance by The Wholigans.
More than just a sincere form of flattery, The Wholigans fronted by lead vocalist Barry Quinn have devoted their lives to accurately reproducing the sound and attitude of one of the UK’s most valuable musical commodities.
This devotion will certainly guarantee immortality to The Who’s music as well as offer a most accurate visual and auditory tribute.
