The Christmas Jam Tickets
The Christmas Jam TicketsIn the '80s, musician Warren Haynes founded The Christmas Jam. It originally started out as a local show that allowed Warren's musician friends a chance to jam and to do something good for the community. The shows started small, with the performances taking place at a small bar, the 45 Cherry. Over the years, the event grew until it moved to a larger venue, the U.S. Cellular Center in Asheville, N.C. Now, it's an international event, drawing stars from all over.
Giving Back'Tis the season to be jolly and generous for the participants of The Christmas Jam. This musical celebration is not only entertaining but charitable. These days, the proceeds from the concert go to the Habitat for Humanity of Asheville, N.C. In the early days of the Jam, different charities were on the receiving end of its benefits. However, in the '90s, Warren Haynes decided that the local Habitat for Humanity should be the charity that would get the proceeds from the concert. Warren chose Habitat for Humanity because he liked the idea of providing homes for people who couldn't afford to get one on their own. Choosing this charitable organization allowed him to see the benefit of what he was doing directly. The proceeds from the concert provide up to 40 homes a year.

Is it possible for me to see a The Christmas Jam performance?Yes, this is a yearly event. What started out as a one-day local show has since turned into a two-day, star-studded musical phenomenon.
