Starbuck

Best remembered for the AM radio classic "Moonlight Feels Right," Starbuck formed in Atlanta in 1974 -- singer/keyboardist Bruce Blackman and percussionist Bo Wagner previously served in the sunshine pop outfit Eternity's Children, enjoying fleeting success with the minor chart hit "Mrs. Bluebird." After collaborating on a never-released LP under the moniker Mississippi, the duo again parted ways, with Blackman focusing on his composing career and Wagner hitting the road as Liberace's musical director. When Wagner returned to Atlanta, he formed Extravaganza with vocalist Elgin Wells, keyboardist Sloan Hayes, bassist Jimmy Cobb, and drummer David Snavely; within weeks Wells left the group, opening the door for Blackman to sign on -- vocalist Ron Norris and guitarist Tommy Strain soon joined as well, prompting a name change to Starbuck.

In mid-1975 the group signed to the Private Stock label, issuing its debut single, "Moonlight Feels Right," a few months later -- a quintessential slice of '70s soft pop, the record flopped upon its initial release, but was resurrected in the spring of 1976 by Birmingham, AL, DJ Mike St. John of WERC. As its grassroots popularity snowballed, "Moonlight Feels Right" eventually reached the number two spot on the Billboard pop chart -- around this time Strain, Norris, and Snavely all left Starbuck, and were replaced by keyboardist David Shaver, drummer Ken Crysler, and guitarist Johnny Walker, the latter another Eternity's Children alum. The band's sophomore effort, Rock 'n' Roll Rocket, followed in 1977, generating a second Top 40 hit with its lead track, "Everybody Be Dancin'" -- however, 1978's Searching for a Thrill failed to chart, and Starbuck dissolved in 1980. ~ Jason Ankeny

Actually saw them in concert. They were very good. The Xylophone player was also an accomplished tap dancer that had a battle of the beat with the drummer. Very entertaining . They were a fun concert.

I remember this song being the music for the LA Zoo commercial in the late 70s. I had to listen to this song on the way to the beach when I was a KID....I HATED THIS SONG!!! These guys sounded like there were on way too much cocaine when they recorded this song.

How come you don't have any info one this group. They are from Macon GA. I had a chance to get to know this group in the 70's. They were the lead band for Boston in '77 but were so different with the tap dances, spoons and the xylaphone. Bruce was the lead, Darryl was on guitar, Jimmy on bass, Boe on everything and I believe the other guy was Keith.(sorry if I'm wrong) that was a long time ago. They were really original but very laid back. Not very driven and I think they were glad to go home

I remember songs better than I do artists but they sounded good
