The Timing Has Always Been Right for Mary Davis and the S.O.S. Band

S.O.S. Band vocalist Mary Davis' entire musical life has been about timing -- good times, bad times, taking the time to do things right, and watching the hit songs she recorded continue to stand the test of time.

Davis and her band rose quickly to the top, dropped just as fast after a good eight-year run, and has now risen back up and re-established its legacy as one of the best R&B bands of a generation.

The S.O.S. Band will share the Celebrity Theatre stage Friday, April 10, as a part of UrbanAZ Funk Fest with fellow '80s R&B hit-makers Cameo ("Attack Me with your Love", "Word Up"); Zapp Band ("More Bounce to the Ounce"); Con Funk Shun ("Ffun" and "Shake and Dance With Me") and Lakeside ("Fantastic Voyage").
