What a fantastic Warren Haynes Christmas Jam and Pre-jam this past weekend in Asheville! Many people were calling it the “best Jam yet” and remarked on the amazing community vibe with the staff, performers and fans coming together as one big family.  The event truly does feel like a reunion… and it doesn’t just start when Warren gets to town; there is a big buzz about it as soon as ticket sales are announced spurring a very quick sell out for this year’s event.  The week of the show Ashevillians start to clean out their houses and plot extra beds and floor space to squeeze everyone in; meanwhile, elsewhere people were busy making travel plans and/ or scrambling to find that list minute Christmas Jam miracle ticket for their friend.  This year’s event was truly exceptional and featured Gov’t Mule, Phil Lesh & Friends, Los Lobos, Bela Fleck, and Special Guests Mike Barnes, Jeff Chimenti, Bill Evans, Audley Freed, Jackie Greene, Jimmy Herring, Robert Kearns, Kevn Kinney, Brad Pemberton, Joe Russo, and Jeff Sipe.  After scouring the internet to see what videos folks have already posted in the two days since; I’ve posted a scattering of nice ones from the Jam and the Pre-Jam.
