Simon Townshend has performed for the last 10 years as guitarist and vocalist in The Who, playing world tours and referred to by one US newspaper as The Who's "secret weapon".

As brother Pete Townshend told London's Daily Mail, "he's brilliant"!

Simon acted as producer of The Who's studio recordings in 2004. Simon has also successfully produced and released five well received solo albums.

We are pleased to welcome back The Wholigans, following their triumphant appearance at the 2003 Convention at the Mean Fiddler in London.

The Wholigans are regarded as the world's best known and longest running Who tribute since 1982.

The band members are based outside the UK. Although their vocalist, Barry Quinn, is originally from Newcastle upon Tyne!

Having captured The Who's performance, together with authentic stage clothes and equipment, The Wholigans bring back memories of a Who of yesteryear which has to be seen to be believed.

Thrashing guitar windmills, thunderous bass playing, microphone swinging and incredible drumming - The Wholigans have encapsulated the total package that is The Who.

The Wholigans have toured regularly throughout the USA, Canada and Europe. They have also toured the UK twice in the last few years.

The 2006 Convention in London will be their fourth appearance at a worldwide Who Convention, with previous appearances being in New York (USA), Hamburg (Germany) and at the 2003 Convention in London.

With a set list containing a variety of classic Who material, The Wholigans are now more popular than ever, so make sure you catch them at the 2006 Convention!

Who's Who are a dynamic tribute band from the UK with all of the energy and angst of The Who at their peak.

They recreate the classic hits whilst evoking the atmosphere of those heady times for a new generation to witness and for the original generation to re-live.

Who's Who started in 1996 and have gone from strength to strength. They have played to audiences of over 7,000 people at festivals and played in countries such as Germany, Switzerland, France and the Middle East. They have also appeared in various TV shows on ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Cable TV.

Not only does the music and performance contain all of the right ingredients, there is also a close visual representation.

Drummer, Paul (Moonie) Kemp resembles Keith Moon so much in his looks and playing style that Keith's mother invited him home for tea when they met at a previous fan club convention! He also appeared recently in a programme about Keith on Sky One.

Who's Who are a five-piece band incorporating keyboards in order to authentically reproduce the full orchestration of The Who's classic albums. Who's Who will have the opening slot at the Convention this year and they have agreed to play Quadrophenia in its entirety. This is something not be missed!
