Thursday Night the 12th beginning at 6pm: 15th ANNUAL WARREN HAYNES CHRISTMAS PRE-JAM

We are honored to be able to bring you one of THE live concerts of the year, in its entirety.  This is the 25th anniversary of Warren's tradition of gathering great musicians together in his hometown to raise funds for Asheville Area Habitat For Humanity, so he's once again got two nights of the Christmas Jam.  Thus the annual "Pre-Jam" makes a rare Thursday night appearance.  It began 15 years ago when Warren and a few others (heard of Susan Tedeschi?  Derek Trucks?  Little Milton?) jammed live in Studio B, and has evolved into a dynamic, improvisational "dress-rehearsal" of sorts held the night before the big Jam(s).  To the artists, it's a chance for them to meet and/or reconnect with each other, and try out some new configurations.  To us, it's a night of once-in-a-lifetime live music highlights.  Expect some "Jam By Day" acts, Warren and Gov't Mule, and....who knows?  Gregg Allman?  Phil Lesh? Panic?  Tune in to find out!  And consider taking Friday morning off work if you can.
