Northern Soul Live: The Edwin Starr Band featuring Angelo Starr and Lorraine Silver
Fri Aug 23 2019 at 21:45
ABOUT THE ACT
Boisdale’s Best of British Festival celebrates Northern Soul - the music and dance movement that emerged from the British Mod scene in Northern England in the late 1960s and is associated with such legendary venues as The Wigan Casino and Manchester’s Twisted Wheel.
The show features Angelo Starr with his special guest Northern Soul artist Lorraine Silver who had massive success with her 1965 classic Lost Summer Love. She will be performing this alongside classic Northern Soul songs such as Landslide, Long After Tonight Is All Over, The Happy Faces and Goodbye, Nothing to Say.
Following Edwin Starr’s passing in 2003 his brother Angelo took over the lead vocals and his superb renditions of Edwin’s hits are just as exciting as the originals: War (What Is It Good For?) S.O.S (Stop Her On Sight) , 25 Miles, Eye to Eye Contact, H.A.P.P.Y . Radio plus the Northern Soul hits Time, I Have Faith In You Baby and Agent Double 0 Soul are all featured. The Edwin Starr Band’s reputation for producing outstanding live performances is the foundation of their success and many legendary artists have performed with them including The Temptations, Ben E. King and The Four Tops.
