"I snuck into Churchill's at 17. It was 1991 and I went to go see a band called Young Turk that had just gotten signed to Geffen Records and was about to go on tour. They were from Hialeah. I remember being scared out of my mind from the car to the front door," recalls Franco Parente, a local filmmaker documenting the rich 34 year history of Churchill's Pub in the film Little Haiti Rock City.

"I knew to avoid that neighborhood and I couldn't believe that they were doing a show there. I had the time of my life and came back the following week," says Parente, concluding the story of his first visit to the iconic pub.

Parente, along with producer Angel Markoulis, have been interviewing the colorful characters that have frequented the dive bar over the past four decades. Not just the customers and musicians, but also former and present staff, plus none other than Dave Daniels, who recently sold the spot he'd owned since September 1, 1979.

The filmmakers have almost 50 percent of the documentary on film and are raising funds to finish production and complete post-production through a Kickstarter campaign and a "Kickstarter Rally" this Saturday at the landmark live music venue.

The "Kickstarter Rally" will feature live bands and a screening of the film's trailer. Expect inspired sets from Charlie Pickett, humbert, The Pawnshop Drunks, Shark Dust Sisters (featuring members of Load, Quit, and The Holy Terrors), Tremends, and international noise king Rat Bastard.

I quit working at shoprite to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $45 to 85 per/h. Without a doubt, this is the easiest and most financially rewarding job I've ever had. I actually started 6 months ago and this has totally changed my life. For more info visit my user name link............

The founder and owner of Churchill's always said he was in Lemon City.  David Daniels business cards say Lemon City.

@LemonCitythrives I guess he uses both "Lemon City" and "Little Haiti." I know Daniels personally and have heard him refer to the neighborhood as "Little Haiti."
