Garry Christian (Lead Singer).
Garry is "the face" and "the voice" of The Christians. The only original member of the band, his voice is as deep, velvet smooth and soulful as ever. With his cool, distinctive style (still sporting the Ray-Bans), and natural good-looks, he is unsurprisingly a big hit with the female fans - “You’ve still gorrit Gaz la” is a frequent shout.
Joey Ankrah (Lead Guitarist/Vocals).
Joey adds another dimension to The Christians .... multi talented, multi- instrumentalist, writer, producer and son of Joey Ankrah (founder member of the '60s group 'The Chants' famous for the story that The Beatles were their warm up band ... and managed by Brian Epstein). Difficult to put into words what this dude brings to the band ... he's pure magic
Neil Griffiths (Acoustic Guitar/Vocals).
Neil Griffiths is fast becoming the backbone of the group ... a great acoustic guitarist and vocalist with a proven track record as a writer for EMI and Universal. His humour is the best thing about him ... don't be fooled .. behind the shades is a cruel wit.
Mike Triggs (Keyboards).
An amazingly talented and sensitive keyboard player who first played for Garry back in 2004 (coincidentally at the same time as Paul Walsham now drumming for HURTS). Has worked with Ronan Keating, Stealers Wheel, Mott the Hoople and Luther among others. Rejoined The Christians in 2011 (to a rapturous welcome).
Our bass player and drummer may vary from gig to gig depending on a number of factors. The talented musicians filling these roles are:
Bobby Kewley (Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals).
Bobby ("the funniest man in rock") is a Christians' veteran having toured with the band many times over the years and who says he's happy to be back in the "ample, welcoming bosom of The Christians". He is renowned for his legendary ear and his even more legendary appetite !
Cliff Watson (Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals).
A mean bass guitarist with great vocals. A dark mysterious character .. who would have thought his CV included dancing in Hot Gossip.
Craig Connet (Drums/Percussion).
Craig is a big personality with a big presence. He previously played with The Christians on tour in 2005 -2006 and since then has worked with Sandi Thom, Joss Stone, Joe Bonamassa, Happy Mondays and many more. At home both in the studio and on stage, his energy and talent make him a valuable member of any band.
Lionel Duke (Drums/Percussion).
Drummers are renowned for being strange but not so with Lionel - a dynamic, dependable, very talented drummer and a really welcome part of the team... feed him and keep him happy and he'll be the best drummer in the world, upset him and you might see 'the dark side'.
