Framed as a follow-up to The HillBenders 2015 acoustic interpretation of The Who’s TOMMY, WhoGrass now gives the audience a career spanning twist on one of Rock ’n’ Roll’s greatest bands. From the early hits all the way through The Who’s discography and even a peek into Pete Townshend’s solo career, the rolling banjo, intense dobro percussion, and thunderous vocals will have every Who fan pumping their fist and singing along!

Formed in April of 2008, and still touring with the original lineup, The HillBenders have firmly established their presence as one of the most energetic and engaging progressive acoustic bands on the scene and they continue to wow audiences from stages around the country and around the world.

“The HillBenders prove to be the perfect group to execute this WhoGrass concept.”
