Angelo Starr & The Team with guest singer Lorraine Silver
The Team have been around since 1982; their reputation for consistently outstanding live performance is the foundation of their success, 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'
The Teams singer was late, great motown artist Edwin Starr whose hits include 'War - What is it good for', 'S.O.S', 'Eye to Eye Contact' and 'H.A.P.P.Y Radio' after Edwin's sad passing in April 2003, younger brother Angelo, an original member of The Team whose credits include Alexander O'Neal and more recently Lemar, has taken over on lead vocals. Accordingly, there is a sense of continuity but more notably, a new energy; an energy that could only be generated by dedicated and well-travelled musicians, Angelo and The Team are a soul band of the highest quality and certainly a highlight of this year’s Scooter Rally not to be missed.
Plus Special guest artist Northern Soul star, Lorraine Silver.

Men of North Country - we are very proud to bring you a musical treat all the way from Israel.
emerging from Tel Aviv’s small soul scene, bringing with them a fresh approach to creating the perfect three-minute soul nugget. The band started by chance, when soul DJ Yashiv Cohen was overheard singing along to the 45’s he was spinning. With the encouragement and eventual collaboration of his musician friends he formed Israel's finest soul outfit. UK based label Acid Jazz Records released two singles and a full-length album. All three releases garnered glowing reviews (including a warm recommendation from London’s Metro and a 5-star review in Germany’s Dynamite magazine).
After releasing its second album on Acid Jazz Records, the band was invited to record a live session for Craig Charles on BBC Radio 6 (chosen by the BBC as one of the best live sessions of the year), flew out to Moscow and Germany, and went on to fill London’s O2 Academy Islington and play the Madness House of Fun weekender.
