Biography

Formed in 1975 in Texas, USA, Toby Beau was a quintet best known for its 1978 Top 20 single ‘My Angel Baby’. The group, which took its name from a fishing boat, comprised Balde Silva (guitar/vocals), Danny McKenna (guitar), Ron Rose (guitar), Steve ‘Zip’ Zipper (bass) and Rob Young (drums). They were somewhat successful on the local club circuit when producer Sean Delaney, who had worked with Kiss, took the group under his wing, moving it to New York and getting Toby Beau signed to RCA Records, for which they recorded in England. Their first single, the ballad ‘My Angel Baby’, reached number 13 in 1978. Toby Beau charted with two further singles, ‘Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye’ in 1979 and ‘If I Were You’ in 1980. Their Toby Beau album of 1978 reached number 40. They recorded three other albums but by the early 80s only singer Silva of the original band remained, and after those recordings the group split up.
