Northern Soul

Northern Soul


Northern Soul Live is set to a superb evening of music and entertainment. Performing classic Motown, Soul and Northern Soul hits, taking centre stage is The Edwin Starr Band aka The Team ft. Angelo Starr on vocals with special guest Northern Soul legend Lorraine Silver.

They will perform classic Motown, Soul and Northern Soul hits including Agent 00 Soul, Higher & Higher, Lost Summer Love, The In Crowd, 25 Miles, Dancing in the Street, Stop Her On Sight, Happy Faces, My Girl, Get Ready, War, Superstition, Stand By Me, I Heard It Through The Grapevine.

In 1965, aged just 13, Lorraine Silver was signed by PYE records. Years later, without her knowledge, her sixties single ‘Lost Summer Love’ became a huge dance floor favourite at the legendary Northern Soul venue The Wigan Casino. Still a massive record today on the Northern Soul and scooter scene original copies sell for hundreds of pounds. Her name now synonymous with the scene.

Keeping the legend that was Edwin Starr and his music alive is his original 8 piece band The Team. Formed in 1982 by percussionist Clive ‘J.J’ Hare and bass player Kevin Kendall, the band – since Edwin’s untimely death in 2003 – have been fronted by Edwin’s younger brother, Angelo. Singer, multi-instumentalist and original member of The Team, his credits include Alexander O’Neil, The Funk Brothers and more recently Lemar.
