“Tony Kishman sounds like Paul McCartney” ~ George Martin, Beatles Producer
“Tony Kishman is a great musician” ~Paul McCartney
“Watching Tony Kishman perform as Paul McCartney is as close as you can get to seeing Sir Paul himself.” – Danny Heller, Gayle Force Enterprises
“If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Kishman’s is the highest of compliments. In addition to sounding alike, he looks like him and plays a Höfner hollow-body electric bass.” – Rob Laney, Theater Jones, Fort Worth Texas
