Christmas Jam at Asheville Civic Center

Asheville, NC

Welcome back for Vol. 4 of “Backstage Jams.” So far we've featured Jimi Hendrix backstage playing Hound Dog, Jerry Garcia backstage playing Crazy Fingers, and Pete Townshend backstage doing a two song mini-set.

When you go to Warren Haynes Christmas Jam, you're guaranteed some great jam sessions on stage. So it's probably no surprise that there's some jamming going on backstage too.

In this video, Trey Anastasio is backstage with Warren himself. The clip begins with a short interview, followed by a nice Funky Bitch inspired blues jam that finds the two virtuosos trading loose licks for about 5 minutes.

The tone and sound on warren's guitar is fuckin mind blowing.

Personally I dig this little backstage jam session though there's plenty of disagreement over its merits on the YouTube comment thread.

But my favorite part isn't actually the music at all — it's the way Trey and Warren share a laugh at the end, as if even they're surprised by what just transpired.

“That was cool” Trey says. Yes Trey, cool indeed.

P.S. I'm assuming this is from 2005 Xmas Jam. If you know otherwise, please drop a comment.

This is not from a Xmas Jam. The room they’re in is definitely not in either the Asheville Civic Center or the Orange Peel, and Trey actually refers to “that thing down in Asheville,” making it apparent that they’re not in the city at the time of this video.  Wish I could tell you where it is, but I just know it’s NOT Asheville.
