Band Members

Cathy "The Queen Bee" Baumbusch
Cathy is a military brat who grew up in Germany, California, New York City and S. Texas. She is a retired Army Reserve officer, a self-employed real estate agent and freelance writer. She has been performing with the classical choir
Choralis for over ten years. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing, an MBA in Project Management, and is studying music at Berklee Online College of Music. But don't let the appearance of strength and discipline fool you. Cathy's a hot mess. But she can also really sing.

Christopher "CV Rave On" Volkstorf

CV is a guitar phenom that dropped out of the sky from an alien world. We hope to keep him as long as we can before the mothership calls him back to his home planet. On previous visits to earth he played with these bands: 

Straight Lace
Gyno Brothers
Fools Holiday
Mr. Fritz

The Band With No Name
Peace by Piece
Abusement Park

The Other Unamed Band

Mo Green
Hot Buttered Elvis
Bloody Meri
Breakfast for Dinners

Zombie Jack​

and SUPERFAMOUS. Just to name a few.

Bruce "Goldfinger" Ryan

Bruce is a native Virginian. His ancestors were the first indigenous nudist colony in North America. He learned to play bass through osmosis-- as a teenager he slept with his bass guitar and a Level 1 bass primer under his pillow. After two nights, he helped found “Mike’s Garage.”  He drops names like Joe Lawlor (Egypt, DMB), and Lyle Presslar (Minor Threat, The Meatmen, Samhian) to impress us. He's been in the band Braddock Road and currently we share him with Mars Rodeo.

Ray "Radar" Greenberg

Ray has been playing drums since he was wearing diapers. He's remarkable because he can actually read music. ​The baby of the bunch, Ray also plays with our sister band Mars Rodeo. He still likes to play while wearing diapers, but we keep telling him to keep that to himself.

​Other fine folks who have played with us include: 

Shawn "Speedysticks" Mitchell, Drums
Justin "Squeezebox" Paschalides, Keyboards, Accordion, Harmonica
Eduardo "El Tamboreño" Rodriguez, Drums
Ryan (Ryan 2.0) Connolly, Guitar

Ryan Boese, Guitar

John Forsythe, Bass
Johnnie Cristaldi, Keyboards

Martha Capone of Martha Capone Band, Guitar
David Kitchen, of The David Kitchen Band and The Thrillbillys, Guitar

​About the Band 

Cathy grew up singing along with the 1970s California rock legends on her radio. She was a pretty boring kid. She cultivated her rich vocals in school and church choirs in South Texas. She got bored one day in 2014 and asked her friend Bruce to form a band with her. So they did. They named the band Beltway Traffic. Which lasted about a month. Then they settled on Cathy B & The Broadcasters. Then they found this hotshot guitarist who changed everything. Including the name- CB RADIO, which is both an homage to Cathy's initials and the old fashioned way we used to listen to music.

With Cathy's powerful vocals, CV's phenomenal guitar playing, rounded out by the unmatched rhythm section that is Ryan and Ray, combined with an incredible repertoire of varying musical styles, CB RADIO is a force to be reckoned with.

CB RADIO is available as a 4-piece band, or an acoustic trio.
We play at bars and clubs, birthday parties, weddings, wakes, funerals, bar/bat mitzvahs, first moon parties, divorce parties, holiday soirees, charity events, fundraisers, special and corporate events!
