Stone (lead vocals): Stone’s mentor as a lead singer is Roger Waters, one of the master lyricists of post-war music. Stone once had the opportunity to meet Richard Wright, Pink Floyd’s keyboard player, and tell him of his love of the music at an evening BBQ in Lindos, Greece in 1986. Richard’s reply was: “That is one of the nicest things anyone has said to me.” A most charming, gracious and self-effacing man. Stone says: “Pink Floyd goes back to my very teenage roots, as it does with my good friend and cohort lead guitarist, Danny Sykes. We went to school together in the early seventies. We have been inseparable since then (apart from falling out and not speaking for 7 years – which is a bit in character for Gilmour and Waters, is it not?) Many times we would listen to Pink Floyd at each other’s houses with the classic posters on the wall. The pyramids, etc. By the early eighties we had started bands here and there. And somehow we got here now. But that’s another story….”
Danny Sykes (guitars/lap steel/b.vocals): Ever since his schooldays, Danny was into Pink Floyd, above all others. Initially from a classical background, he started playing guitar in bands with Stone way back in the early 80’s. In 2003 they formed Fire in the South, and they have been together since. Now with Endless Floyd, they have found their natural home, in a band of musicians, all of whom have similar sensibilities and an outstanding feel for the music of Pink Floyd.
Dickie Knight (drums/b.vocals): Dickie started playing drums in 1973, the same year that Dark Side of the Moon was released. For the past 40+ years he has played numerous styles, in original rock and pop bands in the 70s and 80s, but also in covers bands playing soul and blues through to swing jazz and r’n’b. During the eighties he was in great demand “depping”, when someone needed a drummer, including one night for Eric Clapton. More recently he has spent eight years playing in a Funk/Disco function band, and now with Endless Floyd he feels he has come home again, playing those songs that were the soundtrack to his teen years.
Julian Thompson (bass guitar): Having played in various rock and funk groups since the early 80’s, Julian has found his calling with Endless Floyd and thrives on performing and recreating the original bass parts of Pink Floyd. His favourite Pink Floyd song is ‘High Hopes’ along with the classic tracks from their greatest albums.
Andy Hogbin (piano/keys): Andy first found his way to prog rock in his early teens, a connection which was cemented by a progressive piano teacher who decided that the works of Rick Wakeman were suitable for study. Many years later, after playing in a number of rock bands and a lengthy sidetrack into electronica, Andy has returned to his roots, recreating Rick Wright’s jazz-inflected prog soundscapes that underpin the overall Endless Floyd sound.
Dan Treger(sax/guitars/b.vocals): Dan is from a musical background, and has a pedigree in jazz and rock that started in the late 70’s. The past few years have seen him perform on countless recordings, and today wow international audiences with Endless Floyd.

She is a Singer/Actor who has worked with Artistes such as Martha Reeves as a Vandella in London’s Covent Garden and on tour in Dancing In The Streets, With Sheila Ferguson of the Three Degrees as her understudy in Soul Train also in London’s West End.

Terry McMahon (production manager): Terry is Endless Floyd’s long suffering Production Manager, without whom the band would be lost. He is the glue that brings the whole show together, with a world-weary necessary sense of humour. Any spare time he has, he keeps his company Hipproductions Ltd going, sorting out the show, for each bands wants and needs. If you see him, buy him a pint of Guinness.
