Yesterday word came down that Allman Brothers Band front man Gregg Allman would perform at this year’s 25th Annual Christmas Jam on December 13 and 14 at the U.S. Cellular Center in Asheville, NC. Today, event organizers have detailed Allman’s role.

On Friday, Gregg will perform a special acoustic set with host Warren Haynes. Then, on Saturday, Allman will be backed by a band specifically put together for the event featuring “Xmas Jam Allstars” for an electric set. With the Aquarium Rescue Unit set to reunite on Saturday at the Christmas Jam, we’re hopeful Oteil Burbridge and Jimmy Herring are included in the group.

Watch video shot by John Taylor from Gregg’s last Christmas Jam appearance in 2010 as he performs “Key To The Highway” with a band that includes Steve Miller, Audley Freed and Warren Haynes:
