The hardest working man in music, Warren Haynes, is back with the 20th year of his annual Christmas Jam. Though I’d pay a lot of money to go back in time and see all of the canadian tuxedos that people wore in 1988, this year looks like it could be a great event. This year’s -Mas Jam will span two nights for the first time in its history and as always proceeds from the shows will go towards Habitat for Humanity, a great cause.

The event will take place on December 12th and 13th down in Asheville, a wonderful little city full of like minded people. The lineup consists of a great blend of blues, rock, bluegrass and folk including the headliners Gov’t Mule and the Allman Brother’s Band. On top of the bands slated to perform each day, there are a whole slew of special guests who will no doubt join in on the I promise that no one plays with more people than Warren, the “sit-in” is his go-to move and always a staple. Read on for more info and the lineup.

On top of the night time show, the festival will hold a -Mas Jam by Day, which includes extra performances, art & film. There will also be some comedy for those of you in need of a laugh. Pre-sale tickets have already gone on sale and they’ll run you $55 each night. There are VIP tickets available for a whopping $499; with a price tag like it must include something fancy. It’ll certainly be a great two nights of music and a great way to celebrate the holidays.
