The Blue Note with Corey Harris

After "Burn One Down", Juan asked Ben if he remembered the first time they played The Blue Note. Ben said it was in '94, opening for Lucious Jackson. Juan said he remembered a hand full of people being there, all kind of looking at the band like "who are these guys?" Then he said the people had come a long way since then, and gave it up to everybody in the house.
Before the show the band had some radio station staff and contest winners up on stage (25-30 people) to meet the band. They played two songs for the crowd while the fans ate free pizza.
