Artist Bio

Live and Let Die Bio:  Actor, singer, and recording artist, Tony Kishman is the creator and band leader of Live & Let Die.

 Tony starred for six years in both the national and international tours of Broadway’s smash hit, Beatlemania. “Tony Kishman is the quintessential Paul McCartney…” said the Long Island Advance of the gifted young musician’s uncanny resemblance both visually and vocally to the beloved Beatle.

 Tony, with his long time band mate Jim Owen, perform in the international symphonic Beatles tribute, Classical Mystery Tour. Tony also developed and costars in Twist & Shout – The Definitive Beatles Tribute.

 Kishman is regarded by “Beatlemaniacs” as the world’s best McCartney look-alike/sound-alike. He has been performing his award winning tribute to the most successful band of all time around the globe for more than a decade, bringing the music and the magic of the Beatles to a new generation.

 Tony has recorded for RCA Records and Mercury Records.

 Jim Owen |  rhythm guitar, piano, vocals

 Singer/arranger/musician, Jim Owen was just sixteen when he made his first professional appearance in a Beatles tribute band. By the time he was eighteen, he was touring internationally with various productions of Beatlemania, visiting Japan, Korea, China, Canada, Mexico, and South America, and performing his Beatles tribute in concert halls, stadiums and theatres around the world.

 In addition to his featured role in Live & Let Die, Jim currently stars, along with his long time band mate Tony Kishman, in the Beatles symphony show, Classical Mystery Tour and in Twist & Shout. The success of these projects has given Jim notoriety in his own right as a producer and band leader, and represents the fulfillment of his dream to share with the public live performances of some of the greatest music ever written and recorded.

 Jim Owen was born and raised in Huntington Beach, California. He began studying piano at 6 and won honors in various piano performance competitions through his teenage years. He was 8 years old when he first heard The Beatles and promptly decided to take up the study of the guitar.

 

Chris Camilleri |  drums, vocals

 Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Chris Camilleri had a convenient drum teacher; his dad. He started listening to Beatles records at a young age, and for many years played drums and sang along to the recordings.

 Gradually Chris gravitated to progressive rock bands, but retained an obsessive interest in The Beatles and eventually formed the internationally-renowned Beatles cover band Liverpool, which still reunites to perform at the Fests For Beatles Fans (formerly Beatlefest).

 Chris has played drums for a variety of touring artists, including Peter Noone (of Herman’s Hermits fame), Badfinger, Micky Dolenz, Joe Walsh, and other Beatles-era bands. He became a good friend and musical associate to Harry Nilsson (who was a contemporary and close friend to all the individual Beatles). In addition to The Beatles, his musical influences include Jethro Tull, Genesis, ELP, and David Bowie.

 When not playing music, Chris has an active commercial and voice-over career.

 John Merjave |  lead guitar, vocals

 John Merjave has been singing and playing instruments since the age of 4. He started out playing drums ‘seriously’ when he was 6 years old but, by high school, he began playing guitar and hasn’t looked back since. Although mostly a self-taught guitarist, he studied Jazz Theory at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music with guitarist Carl Thompson and pianist Enos Payne. But, the driving force in his musical aspirations has always been the music of The Beatles.

In early 2001, John auditioned for the lead guitar position with the Beatles’ tribute band Liverpool. Liverpool is the official house band of The Fest for Beatle Fans, a convention that, since 1974, has occurred annually in New York City and Chicago. Since joining the band, John and Liverpool have backed up such diverse Beatle-related artists as Donovan, Billy Preston, Mickey Dolenz (The Monkees), Spencer Davis, Peter & Gordon, Ronnie Spector, Alan Parsons, Billy J. Kramer, Earl Slick (David Bowie), Joey Molland (Badfinger), Mark Hudson and Neil Innes (Monty Python), among others.

 Tommy Williams   |  rhythm guitar, piano, vocals

Born in Long Island, New York, Tommy Williams immersed himself in The Beatles’ music starting at the age of three. After honing his skills on guitar, bass, keyboards, songwriting and arranging, he began his professional career at 17 on the New York club circuit. He soon landed the position of guitarist, keyboardist and Musical Director for ‘80’s teen-pop queen DEBBIE GIBSON, touring the world and appearing on her first three albums (including lead guitar on the US #1 hit “Lost In Your Eyes”).

Tommy has played with many of his heroes, including Alan White of Yes, Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander and Tom Petersson of Cheap Trick, Joey Molland of Badfinger, and Steve Holley of Wings. His performances with the New York-based band WONDEROUS STORIES have included “full album” concerts of such seminal works as The Beatles’ “Abbey Road”, Yes’ “The Yes Album”, Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side Of The Moon” and The Who’s “Tommy”, as well as their annual 25-piece recreation of the George Harrison classic “Concert For Bangladesh”. He also performs regularly with John Fogerty keyboard wizard Bob Malone. 

After being a fan of the band for 20-plus years, Tommy is currently touring with Philadelphia’s THE HOOTERS (“And We Danced”, “All You Zombies”, Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” and Joan Osborne’s “One Of Us”), providing vocals, guitar, mandolin, mandola and keyboards, and playing to sold-out concert and festival crowds around the world.
