The S.O.S. Band (abbreviation for Sounds Of Success), is an American funk/R&B band that rose to prominence during the 1980s. Formed in Atlanta, GA in 1977, the band initially consisted of keyboardist/vocalist Jason Bryant, saxophonists Billy Ellis and Willie “Sonny” Killbrew, guitarist Bruno Speight, bassist John Alexander Simpson, drummer James Earl Jones and lead vocalist Mary Davis. Calling themselves Sounds of Santa Monica, the group played at Atlanta nightclub the Regal Room. The band’s manager, Bunny Jackson-Ransom, sent a demo tape to Tabu Records head Clarence Avant, who suggested that the group work with songwriter/producer Sigdi Abdullah. Abdullah was curious about the band’s name, and keyboardist Jason Bryant replied that the group enjoyed a concert in Santa Monica, CA. Abdullah came up with the name S.O.S Band. Abdullah wrote and produced the band’s debut single “Take Your Time (Do It Right)”, which was taken from their self titled debut album. The group also charted with the singles “Just Be Good To Me”, “The Finest” and “Tell Me If You Still Care” among others. They recorded the albums “S.O.S.” (1980), “Two” (1981), “Three” (1982), “On The Rise” (1983), “Just The Way You Like It” (1984), “Sands Of Time” (1986), “Diamonds In The Raw” (1989) and “One Of Many Nights” (1991).
