Steve Bingham is a bass guitarist who joined The Foundations in 1969 - replacing their former bass player - and stayed with the band until their break-up in 1970. Later in 1970, Steve and Mike Gelardi founded the band Misty, "a dazzling fusion of classically-inspired progressive rock and song-based psychedelic pop". In September of 2022, Grapefruit Records (via Cherry Red Records) was proud to present the first-ever release of Misty's "Here Again" album from 1970. Steve Bingham played bass on all 13 tracks and co-wrote 11 of the 13 tracks including the cult classic single "Hot Cinnamon".

Steve also played on the 1972 "Ennismore" album by Colin Blunstone, on the 1974 "Anymore for Anymore" album by Ronnie Lane and the 1976 album "Stars Fade (In Hotel Rooms)" by Kevin Westlake. Steve also toured with Ronnie Lane and Slim Chance in "The Passing Show", which took a huge circus tent on the road with dancing girls, fire eaters, clowns and a general assortment of circus people.
Steve has also performed with Gallagher and Lyle, Eddie Floyd, Jimmy James, P.P. Arnold and many more.
Currently, Steve plays bass and contributes vocals to Geno Washington and The Ram Jam Band | Geno Washington and The YoYo's (The Ram Jam Band without the horn section) as well as the "Reformed but Unrepentant" reunion edition of Slim Chance with original Slim Chance members Charlie Hart and Steve Simpson.
