Hi!! My name is Anthony Citrinite a/k/a Ant Cee- (to make it easier for people to say and spell my name 😁👍)
I’ve always been into music — it picked me; I didn’t pick it. I’ve always been drawn to all types of music and the business behind them. In addition, I have a passion for music education. I’ve been a student my entire life and have been teaching on and off from the age of 17. Since then, I have recorded/performed/toured as a drummer, percussionist, band member and/or sideman/hired gun with various bands including Boston, Coheed & Cambria, The SmashUp, The Bushpilots, Engine Orange,and Embers Only among many others. I’ve been a booking Agent, Tour Manager, Songwriter, Movie Extra, TV Extra (I was in the Howard Stern Movie for a millisecond 😜. I’ve played gigs in front of an audience of one all the way up to 3 million people - backyards to stadiums, MTV VMAS at Radio City, CBGB’s hundreds of times and I have the great honor of having my drumsticks on display at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame as part of the Warped Tour Exhibit. Music has allowed me to travel all over the globe and meet scores of talented, successful and amazing people and create many memories.
I moved to NYC from Upstate NY (Utica) in 1994 right after I graduated high school. I then began my 26 year-involvement with The (Drummer’s) Collective NYC as a student going from student to director, working my way up every step along the way. Running an ionic music school in NYC had its challenges -I went through them all and then some and I’m here to tell the story to all that are interested 😁. I went on to own the school and it was acquired by a Japanese company in 2016.
I’m currently creating and releasing music with Embers Only, a Brooklyn, NY band formed over 10 years ago.
In 2015 I visualized and began to build the MeetHook (MH) platform. MH was created by a musician to help other musicians and artists create new revenue streams. Using the skills, experience and fan base that they already have, MH is a fully integrated platform for them to connect with drummers via live video sessions. I use MH regularly to teach drum lessons, give advice or consult on a range of music and business-related topics.
