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.

It's our 19th Pre-Jam, in advance of Warren's 29th annual fundraiser for Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. 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, and WNCW is honored to be able to broadcast it live for you in its entirety (with cool holiday tunes during set breaks to help get you into the Christmas spirit, 'NCW-style.) Who else will be there? Gov't. Mule? Trey Anastasio? Les Bros?

If you don't have tickets to the Christmas Jam, but still want to get involved, here are some ideas...
