Whos Who

***

Since their humble beginnings in West London in 1996 to now; Who’s Who, the longest established Who Tribute Show in the UK, have
received incredible reactions across Europe and beyond for their exciting live performances. Pete Townshend’s leaping and Roger Daltrey’s
microphone whirling antics have all but transformed the standard of tribute shows and set a benchmark within the industry for others to follow.

widely recognised and respected by their musical peers and acknowledged by members of (and those close to) The Who, as the group that most
interprets the songs of Pete Townshend and the legendary live performances of The Who with honesty and integrity.
Giving nothing less than 100% during a performance, Who’s Who ensure that a night to remember is guaranteed for those
people who are lucky enough to be able to attend.

Fans of the band include Simon Townshend (The Who), Doug Sandom (The Detours), Peter “Dougal” Butler (Keith Moons’ right hand man),
John Schollar (Beachcombers), Alison Entwistle and the Moon Family.

Singer Gary, has been personally praised by Pete Townshend and he also played at The Who Convention in Shepherds Bush in 1995,
with Roger Daltrey and the late John Entwhistle.

The Keith Moon Blue Plaque Reception

….at The Grosvenor Hotel in Mayfair, London in 2009, saw Zak Starkey watch the entire set,
completely transfixed by the incredible authenticity and timing of bass player Terry Wyatt; prompting Zak to single him out for the
kind of praise that only members of a rhythm section can truly understand, but coming from the son of Beatle, all the more memorable.

Drummer Paul “Moonie” Kemp bears an uncanny resemblance to the late great Keith Moon and prides himself on complete authenticity when
drumming styles and kit specification is concerned. The kit(s) he plays are completely identical to the original spec, all the way
down to the nuts and bolts that hold it together and represent a labour of love with regard to sourcing and application. He’s very
close to the Moon family and is a familiar visitor for the odd cup of tea at Kit’s house. A complete “one off” on the live circuit,
his explosive application to the style of Keith Moon, has to be seen to be believed; there is no need to “close your eyes” with him!
Between the members of the band, they have three International Who Conventions under their belt, including the first ever
airing to an audience of Quadrophenia at the 2006 event, which led Simon Townshend to declare, “What an absolutely brilliant
band Who’s Who are!” They celebrated the 40th anniversary of “Live at Leeds” in 2010, touring extensively and performing the whole of
“Tommy” to audiences in the UK and Europe, amid critical acclaim and have now racked up five appearances at the Isle of Wight Festival
(2006-2010, 2012). Just this year, they played to over 10,000 people on Bournemouth beach, finishing off the weekend proceedings of
the International Bournemouth Air Show.

With the raw power, passion and soul of the members that make up Who’s Who, these guys deliver far more than your
average “run of the mill” band. Their longevity is testament to the reputation they have worked extremely hard for and as
history rolls on; they have proved to be an essential ingredient to fans of The Who and their legacy, highlighting a void and
illustrating just what The Who have left their fans and the music world.
