An Orlando Tribute To Soul Train’s Don Cornelius
Last Friday night, I cruised the automobile to The Orange Studio, an Orlando spot known to host DJ and art events. Tonight, it hosted a tribute to the late Don Cornelius, creator of syndicated TV show Soul Train.
Internationally known artist Andrew Spear, one of the show’s creators.
One night at another spot, he personally invited me to come. I accepted his offer. When I arrived, Andrew told the door man to let me in free.
DJ Nigel John, another creator of the show. He invited me on Facebook.
Oh yea, the artwork on both Andrew and Nigel’s shirts are Andrew’s.
I ain’t gone lie. I thought the sista on the right was fine as hell. That’s why I took the photo.

(Incidentally, after posting these photos on Facebook, the movie Boogie Nights came on HBO. Boogie Nights centers around 70s porn.)
Amanda and Nayjee. That ain’t a wig. That’s his real hair.
Tommy Mott, owner of Spacebar, an Orlando art gallery and bar.
Seeing the hat and assuming I was dressed for the occasion, someone complemented me. Actually, this is how I roll for real.
