Warren Haynes and Friends Allstar Jam Tonight!

Warren Haynes
NYC will be rocking in a way that only Warren Haynes can provide when he pulls together some of his closest musical allies.

Tonight (3/28) will be a party for the re-release of Warren Haynes Presents: The Benefit Concert Volume 2, and the pre-order of Volume 1 on Evil Teen Records. Recently 300 lucky fans lined up at the New York City Virgin Megastore in Union Square to receive tickets to a CD signing and very special Allstar performance at Irving Plaza on March 28.

The party at Irving Plaza will include performances by all or most of Allman Brothers Band, Gov't Mule with the exception of Danny Louis who is on vacation, The Derek Trucks Band, Susan Tedeschi, Edwin McCain, Col. Bruce Hampton, Audley Freed, Kevn Kinney, and as Warren Haynes said in an interview with JamBase on Tuesday, "Who knows who might show up."

"This party is to re-launch the label [Evil Teen], to re-launch what was Wintertime Blues which is now The Benefit Concert Volume 1 and of course Volume II, which has already come out, to just get the awareness going to get people buzzin' about things" said Haynes. "It's going to be an Allstar Jam and it's going to be a lot of fun!"

"This is kinda like a condensed small version of the Christmas Jam. It won't go as long, it's in a much smaller place, it's in New York City, we're just gonna have a real loose jam spirit vibe" explained Haynes. "We're all excited. Who knows what even will happen musically, a lot of it won't be decided until right there on the spot."

So many special things can happen musically at a show like this. Haynes had this to say: "Music, speaking for myself, is so much more fun when you don't know what to expect. When you're lucky enough to be surrounded with great musicians like all of us are, it would be imposing limitations on yourself to expect things to work out a certain way. You have to open yourself to the unexpected and just not have any preconceptions to where the music's gonna go and let it steer itself to the extent that it will and help steer it to the extent that you can. There is so much great music that can be made in an unrehearsed fashion, if you're with the right people it's just incredible.

Stay tuned for JamBase full coverage and photos of this event!

"You can find me in my wigwam
Ill be beatin on my tom-tom
Pull out the pipe and smoke you some
Hey and pass it around

cause Im an indian outlaw
Half cherokee and choctaw
My baby shes a chippewa
Shes one of a kind

They all gather round my teepee
Late at night tryin to catch a peek at me
In nothin but my buffalo briefs
I got em standin in line"

Wow. I saw the Brothers last night at the Beacon, and a lot of these all-stars were there. Bruce Hampton sang on "Spoonful", which Audley Freed played a ripping lead on. Audley was back to jam on "One Way Out" for the encore with Abst on drums, Audley reminded me a lot of Jimmy Page's style on his Les Paul, he was great. Susan Tedeschi sang on the Dominoes tune, "Any Day" and Dylan's "I Shall Be Released". A great show & I wish I could be at Irving Plaza tonight!

Sounds very cool. Abst is the closest thing to Bonham that I've seen. Joe Russo ain't too bad either

I went to this show last night. It was great the highlights were seeing The Allman Bros play in such a small room, and they absolutely threw down JESSICA. Another highlight was Derek, Susan and Krasno jammin on THE WEIGHT, but playing it in the style of Aretha Franklin's cover, not The Bands, which IMO is one of my fav studio recorded songs ever (Aretha's). That was worth the price of the ticket. The neg's - were an 8pm doors, and nobody played a note till 10. Then it took awhile to get things going with an hour of mostly acoustic Edwin Macain, kinda boring music IMO. Once Gregg came out, the rest of the night was on point. I was hoping for some other NYC guests; Gordo, Sco, MMW members, but alas, it was pretty much the guys that I thought would be there and that was it. Cool show, great benefit & cause, nice work Warren.

Warren may just be the godfather behind the scenes. Who else can bring this many musicians in one place and have things still be badass? I guess just having Christmas Jam is not enough for him anymore. Good stuff
