Join his brother Angelo Starr and The Team as we celebrate some of the most iconic tunes from the golden age of soul and the music of one of the all time 'feel good' voices and honour the 15th anniversary of his passing. Originally Edwin Starr's band and fronted by the USA born Motown artiste until his sad early death in April 2003. The Team are now proud to keep Edwin's music and name alive with his younger brother Angelo as the lead vocalist in The Team. Put together in 1982, the band approached 'Build Me Up Buttercup' vocalist Clem Curtis with a view to working together. Clem at that time did not need a band but he had a friend who did - the late, great Motown artist Edwin Starr. Together with Edwin they have been presented with awards by Blues and Soul Magazine, whose readership for two consecutive years voted them 'UK Live Act Of The Year'; and alongside James Brown and Billy Paul have twice been honoured at the prestigious European Diamond Awards for Live Music. With Edwin's passing in April 2003, younger brother Angelo, an original member of The Team (and who has also worked with Alexander O'Neal and more recently Lemar), has taken over on lead vocals, bringing a sense of continuity but more notably, a new energy; an energy that could only be generated by dedicated and well-travelled musicians and singers, performing for years with soul greats and soaking up the influence. Artist: The Edwin Srarr Band Time: 7:00 pm to 11:30 pm
