Throwback Thursday | Final Jam At The Wetlands

This weekend The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY will host a pair of shows celebrating the 25th Anniversary of famed NYC nightclub Wetlands Preserve. The Wetlands closed in 2001, but before the venue shut its doors it hosted one last Super Jam for the ages. DJ Logic, Mike Gordon, Stanley Jordan and Warren Haynes were among those who took part in the September 10, 2001 Super Jam.

Just a few hours after the Super Jam was finished, a pair of planes flew into the World Trade Center changing life as we knew it in New York City. Though future shows at the Wetlands were planned in the days following, they were canceled which left the Super Jam as the final performance at the venue.

Videographer Larry Blumenstein recorded the action on September 10, 2001 and has shared three clips from the evening on YouTube:

The Capitol Theatre has also shared footage from that historic night:
