The S.O.S. Band: Masters of electro-funk
The S.O.S. Band hail from Atlanta, Georgia. They were formed in 1977 by six musicians—Jason Bryant on keyboards, Willie Killebrew and Billy Ellis on saxophones, Bruno Speight on guitar, John Alexander Simpson on the drums and Mary Davis as the lead vocalist. It didn’t take long for them to hit the big time. In 1980 they released their first album, "S.O.S.", which went Gold and featured one of their biggest hit singles—"Take Your Time (Do It Right)"—which went Platinum and was at the top of the R&B charts for several weeks. Their electro-funk sound is epitomised by the use of the Roland TR-808 drum machine, and the band is often credited with popularising its usage in everything from funk to hip-hop, a testament to the enduring influence that their music has had on the world. Their live performances are as amazing today as they were in the '80s, so be sure to check the StubHub listings regularly for a chance to get The S.O.S. Band tickets.

Between 1980 and 1991, The S.O.S. Band put out eight albums, with three of them attaining Gold status. Some of the biggest hits from The S.O.S. Band discography include "Just Be Good To Me", "The Finest", and "Just Get Ready", the latter of which has been sampled by all manner of musicians, including Flo Rida and Akon.
