Dalton and Gosling both retired from The Kast Off Kinks in 2008, but Dalton still appeared numerous times with the band afterwards, Gosling sometimes joined them at fan convention performances. Following Ian Gibbons' death in 2019, Gosling agreed to return to the Kast Off Kinks.
The original bassist for The Kinks, Peter Quaife, played at selected shows with the band before his death in 2010. The Kinks' drummer from 1984 to 1996, Bob Henrit, has also occasionally performed with the band. At Kinks fan conventions since 2007, The Kast Off Kinks have been joined on stage for a few songs by The Kinks' main songwriter and frontman Ray Davies.
Former Kinks backing singers Debi Doss and Shirlie Roden also perform regularly with The Kast Off Kinks, and Ray Davies' first wife, Rasa Davies, has made occasional guest appearances as backing vocalist. Mark Haley finally guested with the band at the 2011 fan convention in London and again in 2012 in both London and Utrecht.
