Donate to the Stuart ‘Chet’ Fraser appeal

Stuart (Chet) Fraser has been a professional guitarist since the age of 15. He has recorded and toured with some of Australia’s best and most loved musicians. He formed Noiseworks with Jon Stevens in 1982 and in 1992 went on to perform with the cast of Jesus Christ Superstar to over a million people.

Chet was then asked to join the John Farnham Band and has been an intrinsic member of the band ever since. He was the first Australian guitarist to be endorsed by Gibson. He has been a member of the Dancing with the Stars band and has recorded with the likes of Tom Jones and Stevie Nicks. 

Sadly Chet has been diagnosed with lung cancer and we are running a fundraising appeal to provide support to his family. Thank you for any support you are able to provide.

The Andy Ross appeal

Donate to the Andy Ross appeal

Andy Ross is one of the best-loved musos in the Melbourne jazz scene and has been bringing joy to audiences around Australia and internationally for more than 25 years. He’s played acoustic bass, electric bass and guitar with bands including Grand Wazoo, The Band Who Knew Too Much, Blue Drag, Chris Tanner’s Virus and many more.

This fundraiser has been set up by a bunch of Andy’s mates to help him through a tough time. He hasn’t been able to gig for a while now due to health issues, so we’re keen to help him with his financial commitments.

Any contribution you can make is most gratefully received.
