Steam Powered Giraffe
Zero, is played by Bryan Barbarin and he tears up live shows in the band Steam Powered Giraffe with his black Hofner H500/1-CT Contemporary Series Violin Bass Guitar with a custom painted red pickguard andcontrol panel. Combining robot pantomime with quirky makeup, costume, and projections, Steam Powered Giraffe is a unique act with a blend of visual art and three-part harmony.
Their Hofner bass is also used live by silver man The Spine (David Michael Bennett) and rotates to one of their "assistant scientists" Walter Girl Carolina for select songs.
Steam Powered Giraffe tours much of America yearly, and has released a collection of albums, videos, and even a digital graphic novel.
