The band features - Wootten Basset - Trombone, Vocals and eyebrows. Following a narrow escape on the Titanic where he was working as a scullery maid, Wootton vowed to give up his former profession ( though not the silk stockings ) and formed The Casablanca Steps.
Clark Deville - Guitar, Vocals and Psychiatric counselling. He's got rhythm. And music. And my gal too. Who could ask for anything more ? Well, just in case you could, he's also got several small islands in the Pacific.
Baron von Schneider II - Piano & Vocals & Monocle. (Hair by Toni.) Frustrated soprano and former diet Coke addict, the chunky World War I flying ace joined The Casablanca Steps because of his love of dangerous situations. Perhaps his war experiences explain his mad behaviour. And perhaps they don't.
Pico Boon III - Double Bass and Top Hat. Pico has had a distinguished career as a top War correspondent, celebrity chef and billiard player. Following the recent creation of the N.S.P.C.C. , Pico will only briefly be utilising his unique vocal "talents" for you.
