Pre-Jam. It's an annual WNCW tradition. The event is a special concert held each year, at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC, in advance of Warren Haynes fundraiser for Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. WNCW Music Director Martin Anderson said the idea of the Pre-Jam started at the station. "What began as a live Studio B session and a great opportunity for various artists to meet and jam with each other for the first time, has now become a tradition with a vibe all its own, said Anderson.

When Christmas time rolls around each year, WNCW staff members can usually be found working with musicians, volunteers, and station supporters in what is known as the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam and Christmas Pre-Jam. The music events, held in Asheville, NC, help raise money for Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity.
