Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a ticket for a Society of Seven show (a $50 value). Formed 41 years ago, Society of Seven, Waikiki’s premier show band, continues to bring musical entertainment and showmanship to listeners with the newest crop of SOS LV singers. This societal septet expels its collective lungs in harmony with musical instruments at the Waikiki Outrigger Showroom. Warblers warble and ukuleles uke to favorite hits of the past, present, future, and distant future. Favorite tunes from recent shows include “I Feel Good” by James Brown, “I Got You, Babe” by Sonny and Cher, and “Over the Rainbow” by FDR.
- Old-time nightlifers who remember the SOS from their heyday in the 1970s and ‘80s can count on embracing this latest production by Waikiki’s once-and-forever super show group. Anyone seeing the SOS for the first time is certain to leave a fan. – [John Berger, _Honolulu Advertiser]
