Steve Bingham (born 4 April 1949, Solihull, Warwickshire) is a bass guitarist who joined the worldwide chart topping UK band The Foundations in 1969 - replacing their former bass player - and stayed with them until their break-up in 1970.[1]

He played on the 1972 Ennismore album by Colin Blunstone,[2] on the 1974 Anymore for Anymore album by Ronnie Lane,[3] and the 1976 album Stars Fade (In Hotel Rooms) by Kevin Westlake.[4] Steve also toured with Ronnie Lane and Slim Chance in "The Passing Show",[5] which took a huge circus tent on the road with dancing girls, fire eaters, clowns and a general assortment of circus people.

In 1999, because of the popularity of the film There's Something About Mary, the renewed interest in '"Build Me Up Buttercup" and The Foundations, a version of the band reformed with Colin Young on vocals, Alan Warner on guitar, Bingham on bass, and Gary Moberley on keyboards, etc. The group stayed together for a period of time seeing a change of the lead singer with Hue Montgomery replacing Colin Young.[6]

In recent years Bingham has been a member of Geno Washington and The Ram Jam Band[7] as well as the "Reformed but Unrepentant" reunion edition of Slim Chance[8] with original Slim Chance members Charlie Hart and Steve Simpson.
