Details

For more than four decades—from their early years in Hong Kong as the Fabulous Echoes to SRO performances in clubs and concert halls around the world—the saga of the Society of Seven has been one of the most enduring success stories in show business. In a career that has spanned Las Vegas showrooms and more than thirty years at Hawai‘i’s Outrigger Waikiki Hotel, the SOS has charmed and captivated audiences worldwide, often performing with the best in the business—Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Patti Page, Sammy Davis, Jr. and many others.

With wit, warmth and remarkable recall, Frances Kirk—the group’s longtime confidante and manager—recounts the wild ride of this revolving cast of world-class entertainers, who overcame dramatic turnover and personal tragedy to build a unique legacy in the rough-and-tumble world of showbiz. The Society of Seven: Last of the Great Show Bands is the unforgettable tale of this brotherhood of born showmen, still performing today in the finest show-business tradition.
