Confunkshun
Confunkshun was formed by high-school classmates Michael Cooper and Louis “Tony” McCall, along with Karl Fuller, Paul “Maceo” Harrell, Dennis Johnson, Cedric Martin, and Danny “Sweet Man” Thomas. All of them had been playing together since their high-school days in Vallejo, CA. Felton Pilate, also from Vallejo, joined the group after his band, a local rival, disbanded.
In the early ’70s, the group was a backup band for the Soul Children with the name Project Soul. And when they weren’t on the road with the Soul Children, they were creatively working with various Stax staff writers. In the mid-’70s, Project Soul made an effort to become a headliner, but they met dead-ends and little success. However, they found good fortune at Audio Dimensions, a Memphis recording studio owned by producer Ted Sturges. Around this time, he group named itself after the title of one of their instrumentals, “Con Funk Shun.” During their three-year stint at Audio Dimensions, Sturges, besides owning the studio, was also Con Funk Shun’s producer. Their association resulted in the group’s first album, Organized Con Funk Shun.

SOS Band
SOS hit with a two-million-selling single, “Take Your Time (Do It Right),” their first time out, before having several hit singles written and produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The Atlanta, GA-borne band was started in 1977, when keyboardist/vocalist Jason Bryant, saxophonists Billy Ellisand Willie “Sonny” Killebrew, guitarist Bruno Speight, bassist John Alexander Simpson, drummer James Earl Jones III, and lead vocalist Mary Davis formed a group called Santa Monica that played at Atlanta nightclub the Regal Room.Their manager, Bunny Jackson-Ransom (who later managed Cameo), sent a demo to Clarence Avant, head of Tabu Records. After signing the band to Tabu, Avant suggested that the band work with songwriter/producer Sigidi Abdullah. Abdullah was curious as to why an Atlanta-based band named itself Santa Monica. Keyboardist Jason Bryant replied that the band had an enjoyable concert in Santa Monica, CA. Abdullah then came up with a new band name, the S.O.S. Band, with S.O.S. standing for “Sounds of Success.”
