Incognito does not have a recognised line-up of members; Incognito is essentially one man's dream, namely Jean-Paul 'Bluey' Maunick.

Since the inception of Incognito in 1981, many musicians have been involved in creating the music of Incognito. Rather than focusing on individuals, equal credit is given for their contributions. This approach, to quote Bluey himself, "promotes and encourages the talents of the musicians and in turn teaches all of us humility and a sense of sharing that is not usually present in most other bands".

In putting together the credits for the "No time like the future" sleeve notes, Bluey took an unconventional approach by listing the musicians as "The Incognito Family"; a decision that initially caused confusion and is clarified on this web site by the man himself.

In keeping with this philosophy, the people who have contributed to Incognito over the years are listed below in alphabetical order and grouped by their 'primary' role in the band.

2013 Concert at BB Kings NYC | Reviewer: Cynthia B | 4/5/13

I absolutely LOVE Incognito! And I had the opportunity to see them live and in concert at BB Kings in NYC April 2 2013. This concert was everything I dreamed it would be and more! Some of my favorites that were performed that night were Can't Get you Out of my Head, Deep Waters, Stepped into My Life, Nights Over Eygpt, Still a Friend of Mine and Colibri. I LOVE Maysa and always will but now I'm in love with Natalie Williams soft, jazzy voice. I wish they would do more concerts in America. They are simply the best.

incognitos touring schedule | Reviewer: brenda bisor | 11/19/07

I would very much like to know if incognito has a touring schedule? If so, when are they going to be in the Texas area or the area closest to Texas, not including California?

I have all of their albums and would like to see them in concert or live. Please advise.

Thanking you in advance,
