Christmas Jam '16: Everyone's Holiday Dream Come True

Do you remember the holidays of your childhood, dreaming of getting EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED? Well, must have been good this year, kiddies, because you’re getting it all! Here’s a chance to make your musical dreams come true, and fulfill the wishes of some lucky Asheville Habitat for Humanity recipients. Warren Haynes Presents the 28th Annual Christmas Jam on December 10, 2016, at the US Cellular Center, and your stocking will be overflowing with an impressive array of artists.

With a non-stop tour schedule that embraces multiple music genres and every state in the nation, Warren Haynes is like that hard-working favorite band shirt that you keep wearing out and replacing because there's no other like it. Boasting a band roster of talent like very few groups can claim, Gov’t Mule is like the complete action playset that's on every holiday list, from the youngest of kids to the most mature adults. With a legendary career rooted in the Grateful Dead and steeped in the height of coolness, Bob Weir is the almost mythical guitar from the west coast that you need to make you look like the musical genius you are inside. Through a smile and a voice that can soften the most hardened of music fans, Alison Krauss is that well-established mountain company's super comfy sweater that somehow looks good on you, too. Possessing a jazz pedigree that is unrivaled on the current scene, Branford Marsalis is that book that makes you look smarter and more sophisticated, but you actually enjoy reading, in fact. Bringing his resume of gigs, tour stops, and collaborations straight out of a Rock Scully tale, Steve Kimock is the rugged pack that is the only thing standing between you & a happy life on the road, following musicians tied to the good ole' Grateful Dead. Having already accrued a loyal following and impressive recording portfolio, young Marcus King is the brand new hot gadget that already has crowds lining up and orders and investors well into its future.

We’ll be dashing to the show, and we’ll see you there!
