Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

David Hudson, a Miami-via-Atlanta TK Records recording artist, had a smash hit back in the day with a song called "Honey Honey." You'll probably recognize the chorus -- "'Til you reach over and hold me tight/I reach over and turn out the light/We're gonna (make love) in the middle of the night/Let's (make love) 'til broad daylight" -- when you hear it.

He and Treetop, former guitar player for the Sir John Knightbeat house band (the hottest club in Overtown in its soul music heyday) play every week at the Sunday fish fry at the Shantel Lounge (54th Street and NW 7th Ave), the New Times winner this year for Best Barbecue Chicken. Live music every Sunday from 6 to 9 p.m. from legends of the Miami sound.

After the jump, some pictures.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
