Who's Who

Who's Who appearing at this event

Formed in West London in 1996, 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 and set a benchmark for others to follow. Widely respected 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 able to to attend. Fans of the band include: Simon Townshend (The Who) Kenney Jones (Small Faces, The Faces, The Who) Doug Sandom (The Detours) Peter “Dougal” Butler (Keith Moons’ right hand man) John Schollar (Beachcombers) Alison Entwistle The Moon Family The Strypes. Godfrey Townsend (The John Entwistle Band) The 2006 Who Convention* featured the first ever airing to an audience of Quadrophenia as a 4 piece since The Who at Stoke in '73, which led Simon Townshend to declare, “What an absolutely brilliant band Who’s Who are!” 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, tone & technique 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 someone who played with the man for all them years, 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! Who's Who 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. Who's Who - Raw Power, Passion and Soul. That's what defines the members that make up Who’s Who. Their longevity and chemistry together as a unit is unchallengable - 13 years in a stable line-up, the longest ever for any Who type band; and from that comes an understanding of each other as players; much like The Who themselves. Any player will tell you that you cannot buy chemistry, and It serves as a testament to the reputation they have worked extremely hard to cement. Who's Who plays to its strengths, which is its collective talent as players and performers. The music will always comes first - there are no wigs or "stick on" sideburns here. As history rolls on; they have proved to be an essential ingredient to fans of The Who and the musical legacy it's left behind.

Abba Revival

Abba Revival appearing at this event

A tribute to Abba. Abba Revival refuses to be just another ABBA tribute show! - these guys really deliver. The members have worked extremely hard over the years to build the ABBA Revival brand and it certainly shows. With each of their songs, building on the last, swelling the crowd, even the biggest party grouch will be throwing shapes in no time - nobody can sit still while Revival storm through their set of epic numbers, all performed live and in perfect harmony, just like the real thing! Even after the final encore they never fail to leave the audience shouting for more.

Hot Red Chili Peppers

Hot Red Chili Peppers appearing at this event

We believe that being a convincing tribute is more than just looking and sounding like The RHCP. It is about capturing the spirit of the band and not many bands (if any) have such a fun and lively, loving, vibrant and energy filled spirit as The RHCP! The Hot Red Chili Peppers are simply the best Chili tribute the UK has ever seen. The band have been very busy of late, recently playing Glastonbudget, The Mecca of Tribute Band festivals.
