American WHO

New England's #1 Celebration of the Power and Passion of THE WHO

The band presents an exciting and aurally authentic show, that brings the sound of this legendary band to life. Powerful, unpredictable, charismatic and packed with the unstoppable energy and spirit of Daltrey, Townshend, Moon and Entwistle, American WHO presents a virtual “Who’s who” of both classic songs and deep cuts that bring back the memories of Leeds, Woodstock, Isle of Wight and other historic shows.

Fronted by David Erin Wilson’s dynamic and “spot on” Daltrey vocals, Stefano Bellezza’s power-driven guitar chords & Townshend acrobatics, Patrick Crann’s driving Keith Moon rhythms and on-stage antics, Tom Reid’s melodic and precise Entwistle bass runs, and rounded out with John “Sven” Songdahl’s keyboards, American WHO delivers the sounds and energy of those classic live shows!

- New Fan from Twin Rivers Casino


- New Fan from Twin Rivers Casino

While only occasionally destroying vintage instruments, this celebration of The Who prides itself on authenticity. In addition to reproducing the British band’s classic vocals on stage, The American WHO Sensation rocks with the same power that thrilled fans in the ’70s.

As a local promoter who sees many many bands I can say that this Who tribute has no equals. Hands down the best Who tribute I have seen. We are lucky to have them in the area. Go see them, I promise you that if the who is your thing, you will be blown away.

David Erin Wilson

Founder, Vox, Booking

45 years in rock and roll, independent films and other indulgences! DW has been singing Daltrey since age 14 and continues presenting outstanding vocals and Daltrey-isms to the masses!

Drums, Moon-isms

Pat is a walking wiki on the who over the decades... set-lists per concerts, different endings the WHO used, song anecdotes. NEVER a dull moment!

John 'Sven' Songdahl

Keyboards, vocals, urgent audio engineering

John and DW go back to Berklee in the 80s. John is the 'Rabbit' for this WHO and also is a talented recording engineer. John stepped into a band, learned songs in a matter of a bus trip and went on the road opening for U2. Not a bad gig!

Tom Reid

Bass, Vocals and Woodstock attendee!

You'd be hard pressed to find a bigger WHO fan than Tom. Credited in the documentary 'The Kids Are Alright' much of Tom's personal Super 8 film of the WHO in concert was used in the movie. He also was tagged to write Keith Moon's eulogy for the international WHO fan club.
