Ishee to leave PSQ?

That certainly seems to be the consensus (and I’m not just referring to this commenter, who I don’t know as far as I know, or this one, who we all know). One story has Ishee leaving PSQ to be replaced by the Anchormen’s Brian Elliot while Ishee goes home and into bidness with his brother. I’ve emailed Ishee asking him for a comment. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    […] Blogger averyfineline is hot on the trail of this story. I’d hate to see it if it happens–the comment that he’s the last superstar in the group is pushing it but has some truth to it. When I saw PSQ a few months ago, their new tenor (Wesley Smith) was in his second day on the job, and while the group was trying to get back on their feet, Ishee’s charisma carried the show. […]

    Ishee has always been just a little over the top for me. When I’ve seen them in person, he is constantly calling attention to himself at the expense of the singers.

    This bunch has lost a lot in a couple of years. Tony Peace, John Rulapaugh, Aaron McCune were 3/4 of the goup just a short time ago. Now Peace is with the Kingsmen, McCune with Gold City and Rulapaugh on stage. Only Kerry Beatty is left. Sounds like something is wrong in the PSQ camp.

    It’s a shame that such a promising group is going through hard times. Of course, they’ve bounced back before, but maybe this is a little too much to survive.

    When PSQ appeared in Bakersfield this fall, I didn’t know Ishee was there (not usually his style) until they asked him to play a solo. He had chosen to play the acoustic piano over in the corner behind a rather large forest of plastic planters. Except for his trademark waving of his latest Cd, his presence was rather subdued and I got the impression that he was just biding his time. When you mentioned a piano player change in the works the first to come to mind was PSQ. They’ve been around too long to fold up this easy but it will be a challenging task to rebound to the excitement and talent of the recent lineup.

    I saw them fairly recently–I forget when, but it was Wesley Smith’s first weekend out for those who crunch numbers–and Ishee was the life of the party. In fact, that’s an understatement. He carried the show and then some.
