The Rants


We are a UK based multi-genre, multi-instrumental acoustic five-piece serving up a fabulous musical gumbo drawn from blues, folk and Americana roots traditions, providing an entertaining and crowd-pleasing mix of originals, classy covers and imaginatively arranged standards.
Emerging from the shadow of legendary Northants folk/cajun band, Ock 'n' Dough, the band came together when O’n’D mainstays Bob & Dace Fisher were recording online during Covid and asked chums and fellow musicians Adam, Kevin and Robin to contribute to the songs. It worked so well that when Covid restrictions were finally lifted, the newly named Rants quickly came together, playing their first gig in June 2021. Since then they’ve gone from strength to strength, and in the summer of 2024 are due to release their first album.
Laissez les bon temps roulez…
because basically that’s what it’s all about, playing good time music (even if it’s sad or occasionally tragic) and delivering it with humour, wit and enthusiasm. In other words… it’s about having fun!
