Anthony Fast Ant Cannuli, A Young Veteran Of The Music Scene

ANTHONY "FAST ANT" CANNULI is a singer/songwriter from Hamilton, NJ who's best described as a "young veteran" of the music scene.

This "thirty something" musician and school teacher began plying his trade back in the early '90s by teaching himself how to play guitar by watching a friend who knew how to do so. CANNULI also comes from a musical family as well. His father is a seasoned jazz drummer and his younger brother is a bass guitarist. To this day, he still utilizes their talents from time to time on recordings and the occasional live performance.

A previous member of the bands Shinebox and The SGs, he broke away from the group setting to form his own project. The current "FAST ANT" project has been in existence for quite some time now. On ROCK ON RADIO, CANNULLI brought along his most recent CD "FAST "ANT"OLOGY." This ten-song anthology is a compilation of his first four EPs and CDs that span his brief, yet full career up to this point.

In studio, CANNULI brought along a school student of his, young guitar prodigy MAX SCHRAGER. An extremely talented player at the tender age of fourteen, this kid can shred with the best. I was very impressed with the smoothness and agility that he displayed as he accompanied "FAST ANT" on his electric guitar for the original song "Termites." This young gun is going to be a force to reckon with one day and, if so, remember where you heard it first!

In an effort to support local original artists and their music, CANNULI hosts a weekly open mic every Tuesday evening beginning at 9pm at THE CELLAR @ THE HAMILTON MANOR in Yardville, NJ. There is no registration needed, and the room is fantastic!

CANNULI is a regular at several local showcases and open mics himself. Fortunately for myself, he asks me to often accompany him on stage at several of the venues at which he performs. Most recently, I joined him at CAFE IMPROV in Princeton, NJ for an enjoyable evening of original music that was topped off by an impromptu jam session at the end with nearly all of the evening's performers. Some of our performance together can be found on his recently created (by another former ROCK ON RADIO guest, MIKE MATISA) YouTube site Other web sites where you can find his music are and

This Sunday, July 4, due to the July 4th holiday there will be no live broadcast of ROCK ON RADIO. We shall return on July 11 with Hopewell singer/songwriter JAMES POPIK on tap.

This Fri., July 2, starting at 6pm EST 90.5 Brookdale Radio is sponsoring a free concert at MARINE PARK located on Wharf St. in Red Bank, NJ. This "Rock The River" event features JILL HENNESSY, MATT O'REE, JO WYMER & THE ITTY BITTY BAND (of which I am now a part), and is headlined by WOODFISH.

I'd love to see some of you come on down for a great night of rockin' music.
