i have no problem with warren bringing in some country acts into his show....as we all should know Warren played in David Allen Coe's band for many years so he has a country background and what the hell he likes to mix it up a bit. Nothing wrong with a bit of everything when it comes to warren. JJ Grey and Warren together are gonna be great also. Wanee last spring was great with JJ Grey and Mofro being there. Had a blast. Cant wait to hear these shows. Peace

"As always all proceeds from the Christmas Jam will be donated to Habitat For Humanity."

Bull. As always since 1999 only if my memory serves correctly.

I wonder if Marc Quinones will actually show up unlike 2000 when the "ABB" performed at the CJ? Also I wonder if Jaimoe will actually perform on more than half of the songs in the ABB set. At the 2000 CJ Jaimoe did not. Paul Riddle of Marshall Tucker Band played on the other half of the songs during the "ABB's" set. That left only two living original members of ABB onstage: Gregg and Butch. Derek Trucks wasn't there either in 2000. Good thing he is this time. And hope it is different this time too.

Warren Haynes please for the love of DOG invite Jack Pearson!!!

Last year the Jam by Day was at local venues around town. Fri was at Stella Blue, and you by day tickets for that, and same with Sat. Mule played a short set at Stella on Fri afternoon and on Sat Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit played a 90 min or so set at Stella Blue, but they had about 4 bands each day at Stella. Also at Jack of the Wood they had different musicians com in and play acoustic sets, like Jason Isbell and Kevin Kinney. They were free. They were only at the Civic Center for the actual Xmas Jam. I assume it will be similar to last year, except it being 2 nights. We just kind of wandered back and forth between Stella and Jack of the wood drinking beer, man it was a good time. With this lineup and being 3 nights including the pre-jam, may just have to take off work after Wed and hang out until Sun.

Saw tickets were 55 per day at ticketmaster. Didnt see anything about 2 day passes and the pre sale info.

I think this lineup is as strong as it has been in the past, Steve Earle and Del McCoury are pleasant surprises. Dont really want the whole night to be the same kind of music, 05 was awesome with the Truckers and Serial Pod, not too mention Ralph Stanley, 06 kinda sucked with Dave Matthews and his fans, 07 was cool because it was a little older crowd with Hornsby, Frampton and Jackson browne. Last year Stockholm and Grace potter put on a great show. Adding the Dead will make this a badass 2 nights of music. See ya there.

That said, gonna be a fun couple nights of music.

No, cUB_nAsTY, it isn't Warped Tour. If you want to know a further connection with Warren to Coheed and Cambria, C&C just finished a 4 night run of shows in NYC called Neverender. Since all of their albums contribute to a storyline, which tells of a kind of Star Wars-like space rebellion, they did one album a night, with a visual/stage show to give meat to the story. Warren Haynes was a guest musician on one of the nights of the Neverender shows. He was so blown away by their music that he asked them to come be a part of XMas Jam. I say right on...these guys have been mislabeled alot as emo or indy, when in reality, they ARE more like a modern day Pink Floyd or Rush.

Its interesting to me that The Lee Boys are playing at the Orange Peel on the 12th and Stella Blue on the 13th, but only Roosevelt is slated for the jam. That kinda stinks cause it is real tough to get a ticket to the pre-jam. The Lee Boys would be a welcome addition, a little sacred steel on the holidays would make me groove.
