Retrospective of past
jams plus last night’s Pre-Jam
By Fred Mills
First things first: last night (Dec. 11) at the Warren
Haynes Christmas Jam Pre-Jam (held at Asheville’s Orange Peel) we were
practically levitating at sets from Warren Haynes – who teamed up with John
Paul Jones for a version of Led Zep’s “Going to California” – as well Gov’t
Mule, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstafunk, the Del McCoury Band, the Lee Boys and more.
(Ask us how high the entire room was flying during an astonishing collaboration
between the McCourys and the Lees.) A full report on all this soon, and
meanwhile, check out some pics from the show courtesy our good friend Joe
Kendrick, who DJs at WNCW-FM (which was broadcasting the event live and will
repeat the show on New Year’s Eve).
And then go to our concert section where we have a visual
retrospective of some of the Christmas Jams past. Some pretty amazing photos
there by BLURT staffers Andy Tennille and Allie Goolrick.
Call it an early Christmas present from your friendly
