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 setlist contains a majority of the most popular material from The Who’s catalogue from day one until the final days of Keith Moon.
With the thrashing windmills of Pete Townshend to the mic swinging of Roger Daltrey, and the incredible drumming style of Keith Moon ,combined with the thunderfingers of John Entwistle. The Wholigans seem to have captured the total package…….that is The Who.
The band is regarded by fans of The Who as the worlds best WHO tribute, which is proven by the band being asked to headline WHO conventions worldwide.
Lead singer Barry also sang on Saturday & Sunday at the 2013 convention in London.

” I went to see The Wholigans– thought- Won’t get fooled Again
Newcastle Evening Chronicle UK
“The Wholigans played our Wed night show at the Hilton in Las Vegas to a packed crowd who loved the show.”
“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.
