Reggie McBride was born in Detroit, Michigan and is widely known for his electric bass playing. Growing up in Detroit put him musically in line with Motown since the beginning of Motown records.

Reggie started playing and taking private lessons on guitar and bass at the age of 8 and began at a very early age to play in local bands. By the time he was 14 years old he was sought after by Aretha Franklin and others. In 1970 he was on the road with the Dramatics and James Brown when he received a scholarship to attend the Berkeley School of Music in Boston. But, he received a call from Stevie Wonder in 1973 to come to NY and become a member of his band Wonderlove.

Reggie began recording Stevie's album, Fulfillingness 1st Finale, tracks on Minnie Riperton's Perfect Angel, Rufus, Tell Me Something Good, and with Syreeta Wright. He also traveled on the road with Stevie Wonder.

Continuing on into the '70s he recorded and traveled with Rare Earth, Parliament & Funkadelic (Take it to the Stage), Elton John albums 21 and 33 and Little Jeannie and Al Jearreau's All Fly Home. He also produced an album named Lazarus. Others artists he's played with include Van Morrison, Ry Cooder, David Lindley (album El Rayox) and Rick Springfield. He also recorded the movie soundtracks, Taps, Hard To Hold, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Police Academy 3 and composed the score for The Whole Nine Yards.

From the 80s to the present he has continued to work with the likes of BB King, Rod Stewart (Great American Songbook 1 and 2), Keb Mo and many others.
