Following the success of ‘Seaside Soul’ in 2019, Denbighshire Leisure Ltd are excited to announce the return of another fabulous, summer, soul themed concert at Rhyl Events Arena. 

A free event for the community, organised by DLL in partnership with Rhyl Town Council, will celebrate music of the 70s, motown and northern soul.

Summer Soul, which takes places on Sunday 30th July from 12pm onwards, boasts a fantastic line-up with live entertainment from Northern Soul Live featuring Stefan Taylor and Lorraine Silver; popular 70’s band Heatwave; Edwin Starr band featuring Angelo Starr; Northern Soul DJs and Jackie Marie motown tribute.

Jamie Groves, Managing Director of DLL said: “We’re thrilled to be able to host an event for residents, and visitors to Denbighshire, which is free to attend, particularly in the current economic climate.  As a company, it’s important for us to make the best use of the fantastic facilities on our doorstep, and the Events Arena in Rhyl is the perfect outdoor venue for this type of event, with ample parking close by, and the Arena only a stone’s throw away from our flagship 1891 Restaurant and Terrace Bar.”

Rhyl Mayor, Councillor Jacquie McAlpine said “This year’s Summer Soul event will be a fabulous opportunity to look forward to the summer season and is one of the upcoming free events Rhyl Town Council will be proudly supporting Denbighshire Leisure to host this summer.”

“You can be certain this up-tempo music and soulful singers featuring an array of talented performers and DJ’s from this music genre will be an afternoon of rhythmical, uplifting entertainment recreating the sounds of soul that lives on today”.

Headlining acts include Northern Soul Live, featuring the UK’s premier live Northern Soul Band The Signatures with lead vocalist Stefan Taylor, plus original Northern Soul legend Lorraine Silver and her classic Northern Soul track ‘Lost Summer Love’.

Joining the strong line up are popular funk/disco band, Heatwave, who came into international success in the mid-70s and 80s, known for the hits, “Boogie Nights,” “Always and Forever” and “The Groove Line.”

Brother of the late great Edwin Starr from the USA, Angelo Starr, will be presenting a Soul & Motown party.  Angelo has taken over lead vocals with Edwin Starr’s original band, which still performs with sax, keyboard, percussion,  lead guitar, bass guitar, drums and backing vocalists. With such an amazing line-up, this is an event not to be missed!
