THE WEDDING (The Fabulous Echoes)

The Fabulous Echoes were based in Hong Kong in the early 60′s. The early lineup of The Fabulous Echoes consisted of Tony Ruivivar (leader, guitar), Terry Lucido (keyboards), Stan Robertson (bass), Bert Sagum (vocals, percussions), Cliff Foenander (lead vocals) and Danny Ruivivar (drums, xylophone). Tony, Danny, Bert and Terry were from the Philippines. Cliff and Stan were from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and Scotland respectively. Their first hit, “A little bit of soap”, stayed No. 1 for several weeks in H.K. in 1964. They secured a contract to play in Las Vegas and were later invited to appear in The Ed Sullivan Show. In 1968, they changed their name to Society of Seven and moved to Honolulu where they stayed. They have been a very successful act for over 30 years. In 2001, a second troupe by the name of Society of Seven LV was formed. This group alternates with the original, allowing the original group to perform outside Hawaii while they continue the engagement in Hawaii.

From Singapore 60`s Andy`s Pop Music Influence:
One of the prettiest lady singers in Hong Kong in the mid 70s is Esther Chan. She is an exceptionally talented person with tight vocals, clear diction, a powerful but yet beautiful voice that is able to interpret a music version of, The Lord's Prayer. Comparatively, she's as handsome as Zoe Saldana, the on screen persona of Neytiri in Avatar, James Cameron's latest adventure into the unknown. Chen Yi De has been singing since the late 60s and according to a blog, she is still appearing in nightclubs in Hong Kong up to 2007. Coming from Guangdong in China, she was never interested in music as a youth but developed a love for it later in her life...
