Chet and Melissa have each had success as solo performers and together are a versatile and dynamic duo also known as Fuse.

Chet O'Connell is one of New Zealand’s finest Guitarists and is constantly in demand for live and studio work. Chet’s vast musical ability has enabled him to move around the music scene with ease working with artists such as Midge Marsden, Hammond Gamble, Jackie Clarke, Shane Cortese and Gerry and The Pacemaker’s to name a few. Chet has also been chosen to appear on Large scale concert events such as Christmas in the Park, Queenstown Winter festival and Lakeside Rotorua.

Melissa has a voice that makes people want to sit up and listen. She spent many years performing throughout New Zealand and Australia and sings with a passion that shows her love of music and performance.
