Tom Wright a former roomate of Pete Townshend (who introduced Pete to R&B ) invited The Wholigans to play at the opening of his exhibit in Traverse Michigan in 2003, where he asked the band to recreate the first 3 songs Tom had heard The Who play in the USA at The Grande Ballroom.
Pete said of Tom ….
“Had I not met Tom Wright”…”The Who would not have become successful”
Tom would eventually became road manager for The Who as well as a famous rock photographer, photographing Joe Walsh, Rod Stewart & The Faces.
Here is a song by The Wholigans from that night. ‘My Generation’ complete with ‘auto destruct’
The lights were kept dimmed as to recreate those early days.
The Wholigans have also have been fortunate enough to play the German club made famous by The Beatles, The Kaiserkeller in 2007
