Ant has many years experience in  the music industry, having played both Guitar & Bass, supporting original bands & artists from the l960's & l970's, nationally and internationally.

 

This has included themed sixties and seventies music festivals and cruises, including the prestigious Beatles festival in Liverpool. He was a founder member of the Colchester band ‘Fat Old Dad’.

Ant can now be found paying Rock sessions with many of the best younger performers around - which makes the correct selection of his assistant tutors that much easier.

The Swinging Blue Jeans, The Merseybeats. Dozey, Beaky Mick & Titch, The Roulettes, The Tornados. The Troggs, The Ivy League, Les Gray, Edison Lighthouse & The Tremeloes
