This year’s Rochester Castle Concerts get underway on Tuesday 16 July with Soul Party, headlined by The Edwin Starr Band. Featuring Angelo Starr, brother of the late Edwin Starr, the band deliver an infectious combination of soul and funk that defies any audience not to dance and have a great time. Angelo toured for many years with Edwin and more recently with Lemar and Alexander O’Neal. X Factor finalist Brenda Edwards will also be performing at Soul Party. Following a power packed series of vocal performances on the popular talent show, Brenda has toured extensively and starred in the West End musical Chicago. No stranger to the Castle Concerts stage, Brenda has performed there for the past two years. Completing the bill will be the unmistakable sound of The Soul Traders with their unique blend of soul, funk and Motown classics. The band has been together for more than 20 years, gaining ever-growing respect for their musicianship with every performance. Tickets for Soul Party cost £20, and are available via www.castleconcerts.co.uk or by phoning 01634 338338 or 01634 843666.
