Overtown Music Project's Supper Club: Feed Your Soul Friday
The event at Jackson Soul Food kicks off this Friday night, September 7, at 7 p.m. with sounds by musicians who performed in Overtown back in its heyday -- the 1940s. $25 gets you in the door to see Overtown legends like Joey Gilmore, Mel Dancy, Bobby Stringer, Tree Top, ad Fran Cina Jones.
Food will be provided by Jackson Soul Food, an iconic location and longstanding member of the community. The menu covers all the staples of Soul Food, and is served as a prix-fixe dinner for just $10. Dinner includes one entree, served with rice and cornbread, plus two soul food sides. Guests will also receive a complementary beer with wine available for purchase.
Tickets to the evening's activities are still available and for anyone a little wary of parking their car in Overtown at night, the event promises secure parking. If that's not enough to sway you, take a peek at the authentic southern grub the evening is serving, and you'll see why it's worth the trip.
