Warren Haynes is ready to roll out the 25th edition of his celebrated Christmas Jam series. The collaborative two-night event will feature such jam-friendly bands as Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and Haynes' own Gov't Mule, and take place December 13th and 14th at Asheville, North Carolina's US Celluar Center.
While the full roster of performers has yet to be revealed, other confirmed acts include Keb Mo, OAR, the John Scofield Überjam Band and Michael Franti. One notable reunion: the Phil Lesh Quintet, which features Lesh (the Grateful Dead founding member), Haynes, Widespread Panic guitarist Jimmy Herring, keyboardist Rob Barraco and drummer John Molo.
Dedicated fans can grab VIP tickets and travel packages starting Wednesday, October 9th at 2 p.m. EST. Pre-sale will run from noon on October 10th to 5 p.m. on the 11th and general admission tickets will go on sale October 18th. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity.
