About

The 5:15 Club are please & excited to announce there opening date of Friday 24th May 2024.
We are also proud to announce Angelo Starr & The Edwin Starr Band with be kicking things off! Advance tickets £15 & A lot more on the door...
The Team have been around since 1982; their reputation for consistently outstanding live performance is the foundation of their success; their intimate relationship with soul music has had legendary artists perform with them; and their audience is drawn from so wide a spectrum of people as to make the demographic indefinable.

Put together by percussionist Clive 'J.J.' Hare and bassman Kevin Kendall, 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 whose hits include 'War - What is it good for', 'S.O.S', 'Eye to Eye Contact' and 'H.A.P.P.Y Radio'.

Since then The Team has been on the road and there are few others with such extensive performing experience. Whether for a throng of forty thousand at the now legendary V Festival in Chelmsford's Bowl or for just twenty-three guests in the dining room of a media and premiership football tycoon; whether at 8 a.m. in a field near Aachen full of scooterists or at midnight in an opulent London hotel for the royal family; whether in session for Capital Radio or on The Jonathan Ross Show, the mantra is the same: 'we came here to party!' for whoever,whenever, wherever!
With Edwin's 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 and singers, performing for years with soul greats - and soaking up the influence.
