The Black Archives celebrated their 40th anniversary with a major gala at the Historic Lyric Theater, during Art Basel in Miami, Florida or Soul Basel as it is called in their hood.

This two day extravaganza, hosted by Rickey Smiley, featured performances by Doug E. Fresh, the Sugarhill Gang and the SOS Band.

And of course, the Funky Turns 40 exhibition was the star of the show.

They sure know how to party in Miami!
