Texas group with west coast touch …

Best known for their 1978 soft-rock hit “My Angel Baby,” Toby Beau was led by vocalist Balde Silva, who formed the group in Texas with guitarists Danny McKenna and Ron Ross, bassist Steve Zipper and drummer Rob Young.

Their self-titled debut LP appeared on RCA in 1978, with the single “My Angel Baby” topping the easy-listening charts and falling just shy of the pop Top Ten; 1979’s More than a Love Song failed to recapture its predecessor’s success, however, and after issuing If You Believe a year later, Toby Beau was dropped from their contract.

The band continued playing the Texas club circuit during the decades that followed, however, still with Silva at the helm.
