The Black Who's? Started In February 2009 When Billy Weadick Moved Back To Ohio From Nashville Tn,

Shawn And Billy Hadn't Seen Each Other For Several Months, So Billy Filled Him In About Nashville, And What He Had Planned For The Future. Billy Asked Shawn If He Would Be Interested In Joining Up, And Shawn Instantly Said Yes.
Shawn Was Working As A Tattoo Artist In A Very Small Town, That Had Very Little Business, So Shawn Didn't Have Much Money. But Luckly A Friend Of His Contacted Him About A Lady Who Was Trying To Sell A Drum Set For $80. Shawn Jumped In His Car, And Went To See The Set, And Offered The Lady $60, And She Took It.

After Two Months Of Practicing And Recording Demo's, Shawn And Billy Landed There First Show @ A Club In Dayton. So They Had To Think Of A Name. After A While Billy Came Up With The Black Who's?. Billy And Shawn Have Many Influences From Bands With "Black" In There Name. And Since There Are So Many Bands With Black In There Names We Choose The Black Who's?.

After Playing There First Show, They Became Addicted, And They Then Decided To Play Any And Everywhere They Could Since Then. After Recording With Long Time Friend Jeremey Watson, The Black Who's? Released There First Ep "Reverberation" They Toured As Much As Possible. They Were Invited To Play The Detroit Chopperfest In August Of 2009, And Have Played With Major Recording Artists Jet, And The Crash Kings.

The Black Who's? Live Show Is Filled With Angst And Presence. The Music Flows Through Them, And There Uncontrollable Shakes And Flailing Make For An Amazing Sight. Within A Year Of Playing Out, Local Bands Would Only Play A Show With Them If The Black Who's? Weren't Opening, Because They Are A Hard Act To Follow.

In October Of 2009 The Black Who's? Recorded An Acoustic Ep Titled "Call It What You Will" And Made A Limited Amount Of 30 Copies Of The Cd/Dvd Featuring 7 Acoustic Songs & Footage From Live Shows. After All The Copies Were Sold, The Black Who's? Decided To Make The Ep A Free Download From There Website For Fans Who Sign Up For There Mailing List.
The Black Who's? Are Currently Recording There Full Length Due Out Before The End Of 2010, And Tour Through The Fall To 2011.
