December 9, 2017, at US Cellular Center in Asheville, NC. Doors open at 6:00 PM.
Warren Haynes’ 29th Annual Christmas Jam is back to usher in the holiday spirit and rock Asheville, NC’s US Cellular Center on December 9, 2017. One of the most celebrated and longest-running live concerts in the U.S., the Christmas Jam will once again benefit Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity for the 19th year in a row. The proceeds go toward constructing energy-efficient new houses as well as purchasing and developing land for entire Habitat subdivisions.
Curated and presented by Grammy Award-winning vocalist-songwriter, producer and revered guitarist Warren Haynes, the Christmas Jam is a one-of-a-kind music marathon. Since its inception 29 years ago, the concert has provided an opportunity for the performing artists, audience and the local community to give back during the holiday season. Over the past 19 years, Haynes – an Asheville native – has worked closely with the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. To date, 36 houses have been built with proceeds from the Jam and more than 2 million dollars has been raised, including a record-breaking half-million dollars marking one of the largest-ever contributions to the organization. In addition to supporting the construction of Habitat homes, proceeds also go towards purchasing and developing land to build entire Habitat neighborhoods – such as the 25-house Hudson Hills neighborhood in West Asheville. The subdivision was named in honor of Warren and his wife Stefani’s son Hudson. And the street – Soulshine Court – is named after one of Warren’s most beloved songs, “Soulshine.” This year’s Xmas Jam House will be built in Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity’s newest neighborhood, a 21-house community in Arden (South Asheville).
Christmas Jam’s rich history continues to grow year after year and has seen unforgettable musical moments from past performers including The Allman Brothers Band, Blues Traveler, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Jackson Browne, Phil Lesh Quartet, Coheed & Cambria, Counting Crows, Sheryl Crow, Ani Difranco, Peter Frampton, Michael Franti, Ben Harper, Hot Tuna, Ray LaMontagne, Phil Lesh & Friends, Dave Matthews, Steve Miller Band, Neville Brothers, O.A.R., Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Widespread Panic, John Scofield, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Bob Weir, Johnny Winter and many more.
