At Kinks fan conventions in 2007, 2008 and 2009, The Kast Off Kinks were 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.
