You where all fucking magic at the convention, top stuff. I’ll be travelling over to the UK to catch

more Wholigan gigs this year. Also hope to see you in Ireland again this year.

 

The Wholigans are the dogs bollox, full of power, energy and can kick any bands arse upside

down and sideways, thanks lads for keeping all us Wholigans very happy.

Thanks again mate, Happy Who Year to you and all the band.

Your Number 1 Irish Wholigan and Guinness drinking buddy,

Paul

I just discovered your web site and heard a sample of your music – and I’m

blown away.

As a diehard Who fan from as far back as the 70s, I’ve never heard anything

else so perfect in every way.

Will you be appearing anywhere on Long Island or in the New York metro area

 any time in the near future? 
Thanks.

30 yrs ago I saw the Who ,……………………………..on Saturday 29/8/09 I saw them again ……
only this time they were called the Wholigans

No ifs ,buts or maybe’s this band ARE the ultimate Who tribute band .

I wish you could be in the audience with us to realise how much what you do means to us .

I was next to young and old ,people in their 60′s rocked with kids in their teens .

All the biggest bands in the world love to play Scotland because of the audience,

if a band gives 100% we appreciate it ,

you guys give 120% and we love you for it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guys – thanks for an awesome show at Fremont Street last night

(August21st) – Maximum R&B!!

I was at the Who at Kilburn gig (almost the last time Moony played with them in public) in ’77,

and you guys just brought the feelings right back and reminded me why the Who are the greatest rock band the world has ever seen!

The signed drumhead already has pride of place – thanks for that fantastic gift, and the fantastic gift of the music!!

 Effin’ brilliant!! Wholigans kick ass!!

Saw The Wholigans for the first time in Las Vegas during the Summer of 69 celebration. 
Awesome show!  Really rocked! 
Not old enough to have seen the real Who, but I couldn’t imagine the music and stage show being any closer. 
Would definitely like to see again!!

Hi GuysSo so very glad I could make it to your show.Had just came out of A&E after an injury to my left hand.

Drove to the venue using only my right arm etc…

Sat through the Underground Jam in complete agony. (no harm to the boys)

I was in pain, then you lot came on and blew me away.Every one of you played your parts so well.

I am also a musician (guitarist) so I should know what to look for.

Barry,,,, When you sang “See me, Feel Me” , softly at first, then in a loud Daltrey agressive manner,

it hit me. RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES.

This was the best WHO tribute I was ever likely to witness. WELL DONE.

Cant wait to see you guys back in this area.

I will invite all my mates and maybe even the wife  if I can pluck up the courage LOL.

________________It’s been almost 4 1/2 years since my last Wholigasm, and I am now suffering from Wholigans Withdrawal.So I intend to see them as many times as I can on this tour. Come on -TOMMY’s AND WOODSTOCK’S 40th Anniversary

Doesn’t get any better!

The Wholigans represent the Who that captivated me in the “Woodstock” movie,

thanks to MTV’s airing 20 years ago.

Hanging with them backstage makes me feel like I’m at Woodstock, or Leeds, or the Isle of Wight,

for that matter!

Since then, I’ve been e-mailing every Northeastern venue I could think of,

and pleading with them to book the ‘orribl ‘ooligans!

No luck so far!

I almost feel like Sally Simpson when it comes to the Wholigans, in a way.

   I will always remember The Wholigans

March 20th

I am a major Who fan. 
 I study them. 
 I live them.  
The Wholigans have captured the essence of The Who at their peak.  
They are matchless, and I was mesmerized.  
For most of the concert I was standing in the equivalent of 2nd row in between Pete and Roger.  
I almost didn’t come in to the show as cash is rather tight.  I live in bike riding distance from the venue,and I was just gonna hang out by the gate and listen to the band.
Jannus Landing is in a courtyard in downtown St. Pete.  You can hang out in front and even though you can’t see the band,you can hear just fine.Anyroad, as soon as I heard “I Can’t Explain” I said I gotta see these guys.

I happily paid for my ticket and walked in and took stock of what was going on.  
I knew straight up that The Wholigans were not some fly by night tribute band.  
 They have the look, the sound, and the feel of The Who circa 1969-1970. 
 I was blown away at their ability to recreate the atmosphere of seeing The Who at Woodstock, Leeds,or the Isle of Wight.
Songs like “Tattoo” and “A Quick One” were flawless. When they started “Young Man Blues” I was totally enveloped.  
The performance of Tommy was spot on.  The WHOligans rock. 
 
Cheers, Steve

Hi,

Steve (bass) from Diablo here, just got home from the gig. Wanted to drop you a note to

say many thanks for having us as your support and I hope we did a good show to get the

audience warmed up for you. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Sorry to say I only caught the beginning of your set, some of our more ardent Diablo fans insisted on

dragging us away to celebrate at a bar along the road (I’m sure you guys know how important PR

and the relationship with your fans is!!)

But I have to say from what I saw before I left I really don’t think I could’ve come

any closer to seeing the Who than what I saw and heard tonight, you’ve got it

absolutely nailed! You’ve obviously put a hell of a lot of hard work into recreating one of the most iconic bands.

Good luck with the rest of your tour, next time you’re over in the UK I’ll try and catch a full gig.

Cheers,

Steve.

Hi Barry.

All I can say is…..what a gig! 

Tremendous show you lot put on right from the off, and the only real pity was

the final encore which was out of your control.

I managed to drag my mate down to the gig, and I’m sure he had a tear in his eye,

as the night took him back to The Who gigs at Newcastle Oedon in the early 70′s!

He takes a lot of pleasing with ‘local’ bands, but he had a brilliant night and was well impressed!

Caught the appearance on Radio Newcastle too, and was very interested in

what you said about your band and the acoustic numbers were good also.

So again thanks for a great night out, and sorry I didn’t manage to get to

chat with you and have that pint.

Next time, eh? …..And hurry back!!!

All the best,

Davy Potter

You said Brian Johnson lives down the road from you in Florida?

Headline: Motherwell show Nov 22nd 2008

Hiya,

I don’t know if you’ll remember me, I emailed you a few months ago

asking if you’d any plans to come to the UK. You mailed back and told

me what dates you were going to be here for and it turned out you

were playing my hometown of Motherwell.

You were saying you had relatives who came from here and asked about the chip shop over the road.

Anyhoo, I went to the gig tonight and just had to tell you how bloody amazing you were! I have had the honour of seeing The Who a few times and I can honestly say that you guys are “up there” with them!

The energy, the style, just everything blew me away!

Baba O’Riley is my favourite Who song and you totally did it justice. I’ll certainly come and see you guys again and i’ll be recommending my friends do the same.

It was the best £12 i’ve ever spent in my life.

Maybe if yer gonna throw so much of your equipment into the crowd and smash up your guitars you might wanna consider hiking the price up…lol

Well done guys, it was an excellent evening and you’re all fabulous!

P.S…it was my son Jamie who gave you his SLF t-shirt, I was glad you gave it back tho cos he would have frozen to death going home without it…lol

Hello! i’m Al.

I attended your gig at Chester’s Telford’s warehouse last night, and had a blast! I had a great time. It was my first Wholigans gig- My ear is still ringing after standing at the front by the P.A! The whole band was terrific.

I enjoyed bashing that tambourine that was accidentally kicked over to me during ‘sparks!’ lol!!!

Just a shame there was such a low turnout.

Apologies for just getting Barry a double southern comfort and nowt for anyone else, but I didnt have chance to get you all one like I intended to, as you disappeared off stage so quick! anyway, I look forward to seeing you all again in good ol’ England very soon!!! i’ll bring the wife to be next time. oh yes, and i’ll keep to my word and get you all a round in!

Once again, thanks for a great night, and keep up the great music!!!

What a fantastic show…very true to the original line up, sound, attitude…bloody great. It took me back…a real pity that there were only about 25 of us there. Nonetheless, you put on a real show & worked your nuts off.

I went with my nephew who is a bigger Who nut than I am & he had such a gas. We will definitely look out for you next time you tour the UK – though I doubt you’ll make Chester a ‘must play again’ on your list.

This is so funny…I remember when you were just starting out back in 1982. You played a at a bar in Newmarket, Ontario, called the New Compass Resturant. I worked behind the bar and had the pleasure of meeting you. I really enjoyed that night and I still have the original poster, signed I believe hidden away someway.

I came upon your facebook entry on Great Big Sea, and I am a huge fan of theirs. I still can’t believe it. Funny.

Nothing is ever 100% till we set foot on the stage Leo, but that said we are working

around the German dates which themselves aren’t 100%…..yet.

Trust me as soon as I have names and places confirmed , you’ll know here and on my

blog and myspace.

It’s quite a bit of work putting something like this together, but our UK agent is on it

Headline: Welcome to the camp …from Barry

Welcome to the new site, it’s not altogether 100% ready but subtle changes

will be made over time.

I actually get to run some of this site and with my minimal knowledge of

running one, it should be interesting.
Unfortunately due to the infiltration of spam nowadays each entry has to be approved

first,I hate that ….as it’s more work, but in order to stop the offers of a

longer penis  and a fake rolex…. it is what it is
Lot’s of shows are now up and will be going up in the next little

while ,so be patient as we are headed your way.

For the bloggers who want instant news and more info/video’s , go to Barry’s Blog

I am a major Who fan.  
I study them.  
I live them.  
The Wholigans have captured the essence of The Who at their peak.  
They are matchless, and I was mesmerized.  
For most of the concert I was standing in the equivalent of 2nd row in between Pete and Roger. 
 I almost didn’t come in to the show as cash is rather tight.  
I live in bike riding distance from the venue, and I was just gonna hang out by the gate and listen to the band.  
Jannus Landing is in a courtyard in downtown St. Pete.  You can hang out in front and even though you can’t see the band,

you can hear just fine.

Anyroad, as soon as I heard “I Can’t Explain” I said I gotta see these guys.

I happily paid for my ticket and walked in and took stock of what was going on.

I knew straight up that The Wholigans were not some fly by night tribute band.

They have the look, the sound, and the feel of The Who circa 1969-1970.

 

I was blown away at their ability to recreate the atmosphere of seeing The Who at Woodstock, Leeds, or the Isle of Wight.Songs like “Tattoo” and “A Quick One” were flawless.When they started “Young Man Blues” I was totally enveloped.  The performance of Tommy was spot on.

The WHOligans rock.

 
Cheers, Steve
I just discovered your web site and heard a sample of your music – and I’m blown away.

As a diehard Who fan from as far back as the 70s, I’ve never heard anything else so perfect in every way.

Will you be appearing anywhere on Long Island or in the New York metro area any time in the near future?  Thanks.

Jim Murtha
