What to Expect
We play everything from pub gigs to restaurant shows to private parties. We have also done quite a few festival shows. We have all been at this for well over 30 years and consider ourselves true professionals capable of adapting the performance to suit the venue and audience. We are known as "crowed pleasures" and repeat book most of the venues we play. Our Storytellers concerts have been described as 'an evocative hybrid of roots, indie rock and Americana traditions.'
The Urban Dictionary defines whodo: An extremely old, or wrecked car that the owner still drives like its new. There is a statement there.....
Many years ago Walter Barlow and Joe Chirico met and formed a musical friendship that has lasted almost four decades. Although they both went their own way after quite a few successful years playing local clubs and outdoor concerts with their band Which Way they never really lost touch. A strange set of events and the reuniting of a few original members of the band put them together again. Given that they started as a two man acoustic act it seemed a logical place to return to. With the addition of Walter's oldest son on bass Mr.Whodo was born.
After months of enjoying the ride, Walter Jr. moved to Japan to experience the culture and Mother Nature's quirkiness. The band's line-up now includes Walter Barlow lead vocals-guitar-writer, Joe Chirico lead guitar electric and acoustic and harmonica, Scott 'Skip' Harris on bass and vocals and the addition of Mr. Bob Drouin on too many instruments to mention.
