Chasiti Murphy, John Kunze and the Steve Hussey Band are bringing BOOMING country music entertainment to the Mid-Ohio Valley! Our Baby Boomer generation is reaching the age when they are beginning to find themselves in need of senior services. Proceeds from this event will assist the O’Neill Center in continuing to provide valuable seniors services in our community!
Chasiti Murphy, 19 years old and a 2017 graduate from Waterford, Ohio. Chasiti has been singing since she was able to talk and has continued to follow her love for music throughout her whole life! She has been in several talent shows, choir concerts and anything associated with music! She is currently a child care provider at Sandhill Childcare in Reno, Ohio and plans to go to college to get a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education to become a Kindergarten teacher. “Although, no matter what I pursue in life…music and singing will always be a part of me, wherever life takes me,” says Chasiti!
John Kunze, a local country music singer/songwriter originally from Parkersburg, WV and currently living in Belpre, Ohio. John is the 2016 West Virginia/Ohio State winner of the local and state rounds of the country’s largest country music competition, the Country Showdown. His musical influence comes from his love of the outdoors, hard work, friends and family. John’s favorite part of playing music is meeting new people, which he considers friends and listening to their stories and experience.
John is also a new Nashville recording artist with plans to release his first CD into the national country music market in 2018.
The Steve Hussey Band, a singer/songwriter and producer from Washington, West Virginia. Steve has been playing professionally for almost 20 years in various bands including Stuck on Amber, The Steve Hussey Band, and Luvbox. He has entertained clubs, fairs and festivals, and private parties all over the east coast.
He bought a Yamaha FG acoustic guitar and an Eagles book of chords when he was 19. The rest, as they say, is history. He has since released four albums on his own label, Merf Records, over the years– two with his eponymous band the Steve Hussey Band, and one EP with his rock alter ego LuvBox.
