It’s that time of year again. We are very excited to announce the lineup for the 28th Annual Christmas Jam taking place Saturday, December 10, 2016 at the U.S. Cellular Center in Asheville, NC. 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 18th year in a row. The proceeds go toward constructing energy-efficient new houses (33 houses have been built to date) as well as purchasing and developing land for entire Habitat subdivisions.

This year’s event will feature Gov’t Mule, Bob Weir, Michael McDonald, Jamey Johnson + Alison Krauss, The Last Waltz Band (Warren Haynes, Michael McDonald, Jamey Johnson, John Medeski, Don Was and Terence Higgins) and special guests Branford Marsalis, George Porter Jr., Steve Kimock, Marcus King, Kevn Kinney, Audley Freed, Bob Margolin and Mike Barnes.

The pre-sale including VIP tickets and travel packages begins October 24th (while supplies last). The public on-sale begins November 1st. For the first time ever, a limited number of reserved seats in the balcony of the arena will be made available, offering a guaranteed seat for the entire 7+ hour show with the flexibility to also go downstairs and enjoy the show on the floor.

In addition to the main event, there will be numerous daytime activities for guests to take in. “Xmas Jam By Day” concerts will take over venues throughout Asheville and feature special collaborations alongside some of the best local musicians and the annual art show will feature some of the best photography and poster-art in music. Attendees will also have the opportunity to give back during the annual “Before The Jam, Lend A Hand” event where fans, staff and artists come together and volunteer to help build the houses made possible by Christmas Jam donations.

About Christmas Jam
Curated and presented by Grammy Award-winning vocalist-songwriter and revered guitarist Warren Haynes, the Christmas Jam is a one-of-a-kind music marathon. Since its inception 28 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 18 years, Haynes – an Asheville native – has worked closely with the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. The Jam recently handed over a record-breaking half-million dollars, marking one of the largest-ever contributions to the organization. To date, 33 houses have been built with proceeds from the Jam. Because proceeds also go toward purchasing and developing land, donations were also put toward Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity’s newest subdivision Hudson Hills, which is the location of the 2014-2016 Christmas Jam houses and will be home to 25 more families upon completion. It was named in honor of Warren and his wife Stefani’s son, Hudson.

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, Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks Band, Bob Weir, Johnny Winter and many more.
