Warren Haynes Announces Christmas Jam 2023 Lineup With Slash & Myles Kennedy, Billy F. Gibbons & More


The holidays are just around the corner, and Warren Hayes is returning with his annual Christmas Jam on Dec. 9 alongside friends Slash & Myles Kennedy, Billy F. Gibbons, Gov’t Mule, Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening, Clutch, American Babies (featuring Tom Hamilton, Jim Hamilton and Joe Russo) and Karina Rykman.

Running for the last 32 years, the benefit presented by the W&S Charitable Foundation and Stefani Scamardo takes place in Ashville, North Carolina, once again supporting Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity and BeLoved Asheville.

“Christmas Jam is such a special event for me and my family and more than 30 years later, it’s still so exciting to see the dynamic talent that comes together for the community in my beloved home of Asheville,” Haynes said in a statement. “After a few years off, following an extraordinary two-night 30th Anniversary event, it felt great to return last year to continue the cause, which has and will always be: to have fun, play music, and celebrate being together while raising money for a local charity. This year is no exception. We’ve got longtime friends and collaborators, as well as new ones, on hand for a rockin’ and memorable evening, benefiting the housing needs of many in the region.”

Along with this year’s benefit announcement, Haynes announced the release of The Benefit Concert Volume 20 on Dec. 8 via Evil Teen Records/Mascot Label Group. The live recording from last year’s benefit includes performances by Dave Grohl, Eric Church, Joe Bonamassa, Jim James, Gov’t Mule, Grace Potter, Mike Gordon and more.

Fans in Ashville can purchase tickets in-person at the Arena Box Office on Oct. 21 at 9 a.m. ET. Nation-wide presale begins on Oct. 24 at 10 a.m. ET, with a public onsale commencing on Oct. 27 at 10 a.m. ET.
