When:
WP Presents!<br>The Guess Who - Live in Concert

Overview

As the house lights fade down and the stage spots flair up, the sounds of rock and roll permeate the crowd. At first a familiar chord strikes everyone's attention, then comes a catchy chorus followed by a memorable solo or remarkable moment of improvisation. Such an ear-pleasing arsenal carries into a non-stop evening of precise performance taking fans on a roller coaster ride of electric instrumentation, timeless balladry, unpredictable jamming and the ultimate sing-a-long experience. The name is none other than The Guess Who, the band that became Canada’s first international rock music superstars, who over five decades in show business created more hits than members can count and record sales well into the multimillions.

The group has connected with the masses through their fourteen exultant Top 40 hits, including "These Eyes," "Clap For the Wolfman," "Hand Me Down World," "No Time," "Star Baby" and "Share the Land." Add in fellow classics and double-sided singles like their #1 rock anthem "American Woman" and "No Sugar Tonight," plus "Laughing" and "Undun," and the Canadian bred stateside conquerors are amongst music's most indelible treasures who are eternally etched within the very fabric of pop culture history.

"You're going to see an excellent version of the songs and hear exactly how they should sound or be played," verifies founding member and original drummer/songwriter Garry Peterson. "We're coming at a new generation of fans who are seeing how the band can execute with enthusiasm. And we're also making sure the respect level remains at an all-time high for how the music was initially recorded and remains at an all-time high for the fans who have been with the band from the beginning."

Joining Peterson onstage are veteran musicians keyboard player/flutist Leonard Shaw, lead guitarist Will Evankovich, bass legend Rudy Sarzo, and lead vocalist/guitarist Derek Sharp. Together the quintet annually launches an ambitious North American tour to adoring audiences and selling out venues with their awe-inspiring execution, deft meticulousness and decades of radio penetrating smashes.
