Although Dave Daniels recently sold Churchill’s Pub, the legend will continue via Little Haiti Rock City, a documentary about Miami’s landmark rock bar being produced independently by Franco Parente, Angel Markoulis and regular/bartender Nicky Bowe, known unofficially as the face of Churchill’s. The trio is trying to make this happen via a crowd-funding Kickstarter campaign that runs through July 3.
“Projects like these are important because they preserve a side of Miami history that the world doesn’t usually associate with this city. We have a lot more to offer the world than just mojitos and cruise ship layovers,” Parente said. “Churchill’s Pub is a hidden gem that has served as a haven for freedom of expression, and provided a stage for performers of all kinds without judgment, such as few other venues in the world have done,” Markoulis added. And Bowe, who was there for 12 of the bar’s 35 years said, “It’s important to document things before they’re forgotten, and the Dave Daniels era at Churchill’s is as important as anything.” To donate, go to http://bit.ly/lhrc.
