Tee Time Music was set up in 1979 when longtime singer / songwriter / guitarist Tony Nelson retrieved his back catalogue from September Music. Tony had his first minor success with them in 1976 when 2 of his songs were released on Look Records. The A-Side, RIVERBOAT QUEEN became a staple British country song, being recorded by other artists and although 12 years later - picking up a minor American song - writing Award. Even a British band was named after it!

Tony continued to write and record with various bands including becoming lead guitarist with a band named Counterpoint. They were formed specifically to play a one off gig as a tribute to THE VENTURES, the legendary American instrumental group. Counterpoint stayed together for 3 years, writing a whole heap of guitar instrumentals. Tony's latest success stems from that band. A tune called SARATOGA, written with rhythm guitarist MIKE NEWEY, was recently recorded by long-time guitar-picker from THE VENTURES themselves, BOB SPALDING, and is featured on Bob's recent CD - "transitions". Tony finished playing live gigs in September 2012 with some old friends who formed Aaron & The Elderly Brothers more for fun than anything else. (They had plenty by the way!)
