In thirty years of concert going this was in my top three of the BEST shows, (right up there with Joni Mitchell in '74 and the Branford Marsalis Trio in the late 80's). It was an amazing performance by Ben and his band. They were tight, and if I wasn't dancing I was glued to the stage watching them perform, and performers they are! When Ben's Mom came out on stage and sang Deportees as part of the encore, it brought me to tears- incredibly moving.

Jack Johnson was great too. A perfect primer to Ben. Very clean sound and vocals.

Thanks for giving so much of yourself Mr. Harper!

...my second Ben Harper show and this one was just as good as the one I saw at the Roseland w/Galactic. "The woman in you" and "whole lotta love" were both very nice surprises. Great music at a great venue. Thanks for the memory...
