In an effort to bring to bring nightlife back to the historically black center of Miami, the Overtown Music Project has teamed up with Jackson's Soul Food for the first installment of their Supper Club, It will include soul food, drinks and jazz (with a bit of blues). "There hasn't been a nighttime event like this in Overtown in nearly 30 years," said Amy Rosenberg, founder of the Overtown Music Project "so we decided to kick the sand and get people out to Overtown with our first ever supper club."

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.

I Heard Bobby Stringer Passed away on Sunday 10/27/2013 .  I searched on Line Bobby Stringers Name, and I found your video of the Rehersal on Sept. 2012. Notice the SHirt Bobby Stringer is wearing, its a photo memory of his mother eulogized on his T shirt. Bobby would come Overtown every mothers Day to Perform for the People of Overtown in memory of  Bobby's Mother. I had the pleaseure of Performinfg with Bobby Stringer over the years especially in the 80's & 90's.
