October 5, 2015 at 11:45 AM (PT)
WARREN HAYNES' 27th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS JAM will be held at ASHEVILLE, NC's US CELLULAR CENTER, DECEMBER 12th, and will once again benefit ASHEVILLE AREA HABITAT FOR HUMANITY for the 17th year in a row. The proceeds go toward constructing energy-efficient new houses (33 houses have been built to date) as well as purchasing and developing land for entire HABITAT subdivisions.
The CHRISTMAS JAM is steeped in a tradition of surprise collaborations, rare appearances, an array of special guests, and a show that usually ends just a few hours before sunrise. To mark today, OCTOBER 5th, as WORLD HABITAT DAY, the JAM has announced its initial line-up: WARREN HAYNES, TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND, THE DOOBIE BROTHERS, JOE BONAMASSA, DAWES, BLACKBERRY SMOKE, ELECTRIC HOT TUNA and BRUCE HORNSBY.
The pre-sale including VIP tickets and travel packages begins OCTOBER 9th. The public on-sale begins OCTOBER 23rd. Doors open at 6pm (ET) and the show begins at 7p (ET). More artists will be announced in the coming weeks.
"XMAS JAM BY DAY" events and concerts will pop up around ASHEVILLE and "BEFORE THE JAM LEND A HAND," will also be in full force, where volunteers can help build the houses made possible by CHRISTMAS JAM donations.
