Meet The Band

Keyboards, Saxophone & Vocals
As legend would have it, Gregg Allman is credited with finding our young Mark and bringing him out of the wilds of the SF Bay Area music scene and onto the tour bus. After two years touring with Gregg Allman and Friends, the noticeably corrupted musician learned the ways of Pink Floyd and left the Blues world to launch House of Floyd. The rest is history!

Guitar, Lap Steel & Vocals
The gravitas emanating from that black Strat is none other than Alameda's own guitar extraordinaire, Pat Potter. It's because of his talents on guitar, lap steel, and vocals that House of Floyd puts up with his endless jokes and puns. Pat is also a fabulous cook and world renowned expert on how to best cook gill-bearing aquatic vertebrates. Streaming live from his hotel hot plate, watch for him on the cooking channel.

He may be the new guy on the stage, but don’t under estimate his ability to WOW you with his talent. He’s got a grip on that bass and those Floyd songs are going down! We’re not sure where he learned to play like that, he might just be cool, but we’re glad he’s joined our band.

Greg does everything with Knowledge! Whether he's, singing, soloing, tuning, or simply putting away his guitar, it's always done with Knowledge. Greg selects every guitar sound or keyboard patch to achieve just the right Floyd sound with Knowledge. As a guitar instructor he teaches his students to play with Knowledge. Now every guitarist can succeed with Knowledge by getting his first book, a Guitarist's Guide to Improvising With Knowledge. For a sneak preview check out various on-line videos at Improvising With Knowledge.
Known for his great timing, Stewart joined House of Floyd just in time to sign on for the 2012 India Tour! Despite the fact that he's a south paw, he can still play Floyd in the style of Nick Mason. In addition to teaching young musicians to play drums, Stewart has been seen roaming hotels late at night while banging a cracked cymbal. If you see him, don't approach! Instead, report his location to House of Floyd.

Despite the fact that Sheri thought Great Gig In The Sky sounded like a bunch of screaming when she first heard it, she has since embraced the song and made it her own. She just can't figure out why the audiences doesn’t sing along. We don't have the heart to tell her that it's not that kind of song.

Angie has been with HOF off-and-on since the beginning. Although she's taken several sabbaticals over the years, she keeps finding her way back to her spot on stage with The House. She must have been born under a lucky star, because she always seems to be in the right place at the right time. We're hoping some of that magic rubs off on the rest of us.
