Steve McGinnis

Tuba/Electric Bass

Steve is one of several tuba players in the band, and doubles as electric bass player for the band's jazz and rock numbers. He's also an excellent vocalist... and a yodeler extroardinaire! His electric bass skills, as well as his vocal prowess, stem from the fact that he also serves as the bass player and vocalist for The Internationals™.

Steve is one of the original members from the 10-piece version of the CBB. The 10-piece band was the first "official" Chico Bavarian Band (because that was the first group to actually get paid!). Of course, back then he was a so-so electric bass player and hadn't learned to yodel. We kept him around anyway, though, because we knew he had potential -- and he was fun at parties!
