Jerry was one of the original band members of One Love for 8 years and toured the Hard Rock Cafe circuit in Asia. Jerry was also a foundation member of Katchafire for 2 years and even toured Hawaii. He is now back in Christchurch recording and writing his own music and performing with Kharamello and Funkdefyed.
Jason Otene (J.Jay)
J.Jay is the man behind the skins, where he has been smiling from since his young days in church. He is Kharamello’s guiding light, not only because he holds the beat with precision timing, but because he has been playing in many Christian and Polynesian groups both locally and internationally. The most notable being the “Promise Keepers”, which is world renowned, and “Certain Soundz”, which toured Australasia giving important messages to our youth with the aid of music. J.Jay is responsible for the jovial tempo of our performance and you will always see him laughing.
Posenai Mavaega (Pos)
Known to many as the Musical Director for Christchurch Performing Arts collective “Pacific Underground”, Pos enjoys the spontaneous and creative nature of Kharamello, where he lends his talent to form the deep soul bass part of the all-funk’n’fun rhythm section. Pos’s many years of experience in the music and performing arts industry has seen him work alongside local celebrities Scribe, Adeaze, Che Fu, Oscar Keightley, and “The Naked Samoans”, as well as international artists such as Ben Harper, and Vika and Linda. Pos’ latest show “Island Summer” appeared at the 2005 Applaud Christchurch Arts Festival which featured a 25piece guitar orchestra playing traditional and contemporary Polynesian music. Pos provides the smooth and silky notes to Kharamellos’ repertoire.
