Chris Newman (as Jon)
Chris began his singing career in a church choir at age 10, and later won a music leadership award as most outstanding voice in grade 8. As the drummer in a high school band, he realized his true passion for singing when he was forced to sing from behind the kit after his lead singer missed a gig due to illness. For years, Chris has been compared both vocally and visually to the Bon Jovi frontman, ultimately leading him to form Keep The Faith in light of his absolute dedication to and appreciation for Bon Jovi. Taking his craft very seriously, Chris creates the ultimate Jon Bon Jovi illusion on stage. Chris delivers the moves, the look, the sound and most importantly the energy that Jon gives in his live shows! His other vocal influences include; Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, Steve Tyler, Rik Emmett, Steve Perry, Bruce Springsteen, David Gilmour and Bruce Dickinson, just to name a few.
Dave Bentley (as Richie)
Dave hailing from Burlington, Ontario, has been playing guitar since the age of 7, and has performed in many original and tribute bands throughout the Greater Toronto Area, most notably the U2 Project. Taking on the role of Richie Sambora, Dave brings a new excitement to the band with his guitar wizardry and powerful backing vocal. He takes into account every aspect of Richie’s craft to perfection. Dave brings the ultimate visual and vocal illusion to ‘the King of Swing and Master of Disaster” and this new excitement to the band.
Doug Adams (as Hugh)
Originally a classically-trained pianist, young Doug picked up the blues bug and a Danelectro bass. Since then he has spent virtually a lifetime playing with various bands on both sides of the border. Doug’s balance of precision and delicate touch is the perfect match for playing Hugh McDonald’s tasteful and distinctive bass lines. Doug has been with Keep The Faith since its inception.

He is pleased to bring forth the spectacle of Tico Torres, adding the pounding backbeat to the Bon Jovi experience that is KEEP THE FAITH.
