Tony Kishman is an American bassist, most noted for his work with Wishbone Ash and in the musical Beatlemania.[1][2]

Early career

Kishman began his musical career playing in cover bands in the Tucson, Arizona area. While playing lead guitar in a band in South California, his booking agent – Fred Cisneros – suggested he audition for the US Beatlemania show. He passed the audition, and played Paul McCartney in the show between 1977 and 1983.[2]

Wishbone Ash

Following the end of the show, Kishman moved to England where he was introduced to Andy Powell. In 1994 he was asked to join the band as bassist and vocalist, and subsequently appeared on the band's Illuminations and Live in Geneva albums.[3]

Post-Wishbone Ash

In 1997, Kishman left Wishbone Ash to pursue different musical projects. He has returned to performing as Paul McCartney in Twist and Shout, an American Beatles tribute band.[4]

Kishman is now a current band member with the critically acclaimed Classical Mystery Tour.
