PHIL PALMER MUSICAL DIRECTOR – GUITARS & VOCALS
Phil joined Dire Straits in 1990 and played on the band’s On Every Street record and world tour. He is one of the world’s top session guitarists, having played on more than 450 albums and toured with a list of some the world’s greatest artists that is too long to mention; think of a name and Phil has probably played with that person. He was also a member of Eric Clapton’s band along with his DS Legacy colleagues Alan and Steve.
ALAN CLARK – PIANO, HAMMOND ORGAN AND KEYBOARDS
Alan joined Dire Straits in 1980, becoming their first and main keyboard player, and played on every tour and record thereafter until the band’s eventual breakup in the mid-1990s. He also co-produced the On Every Street album with Knopfler. He has played and recorded with many other artists and was a member of Eric Clapton’s band for several years while Dire Straits took a break, and was Tina Turner’s musical director at the height of her career.
TREVOR HORN – BASS & VOCALS
Trevor is a true legend in the music industry. After forming The Buggles and recording the chart topping 1979 hit “Video Killed the Radio Star”, Horn went on to produce some of the most recognizable anthems that defined the Eighties, including ABC’s “Lexicon of Love”, “Owner of a Lonely Heart” by Yes, and Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s number one hits “Relax”, “Two Tribes” and “The Power of Love”. Trevor went on to produce hits for Tina Turner, Tom Jones, Marc Almond, Barry Manilow, Cher, Boyzone, 10cc, Bryan Ferry, John Legend, Lisa Stansfield, Robbie Williams, Grace Jones, Simple Minds and many others.
DANNY CUMMINGS – PERCUSSIONS & VOCALS
Danny joined Dire Straits as their percussionist in 1990 and played on the On Every Street album and tour. Outside of Dire Straits, he has worked with many great artists including Tina Turner, George Michael, Bryan Adams, Pino Daniele, and was the drummer in Mark Knopfler’s band for several years.
MEL COLLINS – SAX
Mel joined Dire Straits in 1982 and played on the Love Over Gold album and tour, and “Twisting by the Pool”. He’s also played with a huge list of artists/bands including the Stones, Camel, Eric Clapton, Joe Cocker, Tears for Fears and many more, and as an original member of King Crimson, has recently been doing a world tour with the band
STEVE FERRONE – DRUMS

MARCO CAVIGLIA – VOICE & GUITARS
In love with the music of Dire Straits and his musical mentor Mark Knopfler, Rome-born Marco formed the band Solid Rock in 1988, and in 1990 toured with the legendary bluesman of the Notting Hillbillies, Steve Phillips. But his dream was to play with his Dire Straits “heroes”, and that dream became a reality in 2010 with the DS Legends, and now again with the fantastic line-up that is the DSLegacy.
PRIMIANO DIBIASE – KEYBOARDS
Also a Roman, Primiano is a sought after, gifted keyboard player who has played on many records and with many artists including Richard Bennett, Steve Phillips, Gigi Proietti, Neri Marcorè.
