 +Delbert Nave (Lead Vocals, Guitarist) was saved during college (1978). He started to play in coffee houses and missions. John Ware (Bass Player, Backing Vocals) and Delbert met in college and the two would go on to start BTVB.
 +Blind Teeth Victory Band released their first 45 in 1981 with "​Minister'​s Daughter"​ on one side and "Tell the World About Jesus" on the other. They began getting local airplay with '​Minister'​s Daughter'​ but the song was eventually pulled for it's controversial lyrics.
 +
 +In 1983 Mark Kendall joined the band as drummer and BTVB released //Trilogy// (A Three Song EP). Once again in 1985 the guys released another 45 with "I Wanna Dance" and "Every time." ​
 +
 +Shortly after, BTVB released there first full fledge album //Preston Moneaux// (Pressed-In-Mono for anyone looking for the meaning!). PM had all the bands previous recordings plus a couple new efforts.
 +
 +Jesse Carmona joined the band as Keyboardist/​Synthesizer and in 1987 the 4 guys released //Kill a Baby, Save a Dog//. This album is often credited with being the first anti-abortion album ever made, but in truth only half the album (one-side) was anti-abortion songs. The remainder (other-side) was a mixture of other songs.
 +
 +Shortly before leaving the band to pursue other efforts, Carmona and Nave released //Give An Account//.
 +Though they did see some radio air play most of the of the lyrics and songs were outside the mainstream of their time. The music was of varied style, anything from rock and blues to pop and polka (and a lot in between!) Delbert believed in singing about issues, such as abortion, hypocrisy, drug use and watching people walk away from the faith. All of this was done in a very fun and loving way. The band had several albums and continued playing shows into the 1990's and also recording. ​
 +
 +Delbert had planned a final album for a number of years but he passed away unexpectedly in 2014. Friends, family and band members pulled together to make that album a reality in //The Blest Of// (the title he had planned the release to have).
