The Sauce 

Miles Bonny, producer, DJ and cultural philosopher, has a theory as to why the mainstream dinner crowd at the Spitfire Grill feels so comfortable with the atmosphere that his records induce. "Throughout history, the current black artist has often been looked at by older white people as being scary or too foreign, and they stay away from it," he says. "Progressive musical trends often take time to be accepted by mainstream America." Every Friday night at the Spitfire, with help from fellow hip-hop scenester and soul lover Beatbroker, Bonny draws from his extensive old-school collection of soul and funk records and takes patrons back to a time when many of them weren't even around. One thing is clear: Whether he's playing Miles Davis or UGK, Bonny's appreciation for classic sounds will hold steady as long as he's alive.
