Starbuck was a rock band formed in Atlanta, Georgia in 1974 by Bruce Blackman and Bo Wagner. Starbuck’s debut single, “Moonlight Feels Right”, reached the #3 position on the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts in 1976. Although the band never re-created the success of their debut, several of their songs did chart in the Billboard Top 100 and their 1977 release “Everybody Be Dancin'” reached #38.
From 1976 to 1980, the band toured with popular groups of the era including ELO, KC & the Sunshine Band, Hall & Oates and Boston. TV appearances included American Bandstand, The Merv Griffin Show, Dinah!, The Mike Douglas Show and Solid Gold.
When I first started this blog, I had a Memorial Day post regarding the USO Shows. Our troops can always use our support, whether they’re actively serving now or have served in the past (yes, even if you don’t support the damn wars). The previous post had a list of musicians who actively help out with the USO shows and a list of ways you can help. Please check it out by clicking HERE to learn more! My personal, favorite way to donate is directly to a Vet. He sits outside North Station with his walker and since I never carry cash, I run in and grab Dunkins for him. He usually tries to give me joking grief, being so young and needing the cash myself, but no vet should be begging for cash.
Well now that I may have slightly dampened your Memorial Day camping / boating / tanning plans, it’s back on to the music and celebration. The roomie picked up a bunch of new stuff at Garnick’s and I’m still trying to get through My Dad’s Albums. Rumor has it my mom will even be dropping off the custom shelving for the singles so the pressure is on to finish up these full albums soon!!
The Golden Goodies is one of my dad’s but I’m pretty sure I saw some at Garnick’s. I do know I’m missing some, so hopefully I can fill the gaps there. It’s becoming my home away from home.
