George Huntley is an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter, best known as a member of The Connells from 1985 to 2001. George Huntley was a childhood friend of brothers David and Mike Connell. Huntley performed solo acts for The Connells at many of their early shows. After the band began playing larger shows and had a song featured on the Dolphin Records' More Mondo compilation, Huntley expressed interest in joining the band. Shortly after he graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1984, he became a member of the band and made his debut on the 1985 Hats Off EP, produced by Don Dixon. Up until 1991 with the addition of keyboardist Steve Potak, Huntley played both lead guitar and keyboards in the band, often switching between both during the same song. He also wrote and sang lead vocals on numerous Connells songs such as  "Sal", "Home Today", and "Doin' You". In 1996, he released his first and only solo album titled Brainjunk.

For the first time in 20 years George is bringing his songs back to the stage with a full band consisting of Scott Carle (Dillon Fence), Andrew Branan (Cage Bird Fancier), Tom Mills (Johnny Folsom 4) and Alex Lawhon (The Roman Spring).  

George has also recently been back in the studio with producer Ryan Pickett (My Morning Jacket) working on his first release in over 28 years.

Mike is best known as the former frontman of the rock band Collapsis, which, in 2000, reached the No. 28 slot on the Billboard Modern Rock charts with the hit song "Automatic". He was also the second and final lead guitarist for the North Carolina-based band Athenaeum, replacing Grey Brewster for their second album and continuing until the band disbanded in 2004. With former Athenaeum members, Garrigan formed a new band called the "Mike Garrigan Four" (formally known as mg4), which released an EP in 2004. Since then he worked as a solo artist, while continuing to play occasional shows with Mark Kano, lead singer of Athenaeum.[
