Snoop Dogg Performs at The Blue Note
COLUMBIA - The show must go on at the Blue Note despite the weather's unpredictability. Rapper Snoop Dogg will be performing outside The Blue Note. The venue is celebrating 30 years of history at the Ninth Street Block Party.
The Blue Note's stage has heard the voices of Wilco and Chuck Berry. The stage inside will remain empty Friday, but outside, workers set up for a Ninth Street concert featuring Snoop Dogg.
Friday's show brings back some memories of bad weather.
"30 years ago the Blue Note's first concert battled temperatures of 106 degrees and despite the rain on their 30th anniversary, 3,000 people are expected to fill up Ninth Street," said Blue Note owner Richard King.
"There's still a lot of excitement with everybody, especially today, there's a ton of excitement for the show tonight," King said.
There is one memory that sticks out the most to King.
"When Johnny Cash walked down our stage in 1994 that was you know, was pretty, I use the word 'spine-tingling,'" King said.
From its first concert to the first event for the 30 year anniversary, the Blue Note has left its impression on Columbia.
