Warren and Stefani Haynes send Habitat biggest gift yet
By Tony Kiss
published September 21, 2007 10:16 am

Asheville raised rock star Warren Haynes and his wife Stefani have sent a sweet gift to the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity – a check for $127,200 from last year’s Christmas Jam concert at the Asheville Civic Center.

It’s the largest single gift yet from the Christmas Jam, the nationally known rock show hosted each holiday season by Haynes, and featuring top-name stars. In total, the Christmas Jam has donated $650,000 to Habitat.

Proceeds from last year’s jam are being used to built Habitat houses both in New Orleans, and Habitat’s Enka Hills subdivision. Construction of the New Orleans home should be done in October, and work on the Enka house will be underway when Haynes returns this December for the Christmas Jam

Good to see them really putting back into a city that all musicians owe soooo much. Also great to see Warren and Stefani giving back to Warren's home town. You should never forget where you came from, and Warren sure hasn't!!!!

Warren, you and everybody else can do something real easy to help generate revenue for a very fine group of people who are in the Musicians Village area outside of New Orleans. (about 45 miles outside of it). Each time you have to search for something on the internet, use www.goodsearch.com and you can designate a charity for money to be donated to. The charity you select is People for Plaquemines. (Plaquemines is the name of the county they are in). Info about this on Bill Hudson's page.

Rock on Warren, and consider going down there to help out!

I hear the show this year will be on the 15th. Someone called the Civic Center and they said the 15th, which is great cause the next Saturday is too close to Christmas. I love going the Christmas Jam. Best night of music this country has to offer, imho.

Warren Haynes & Friends: Jamming For Charity
By Doug Collette


Guitarist Warren Haynes' prolific nature as a musician is matched by his great generosity of spirit. Since joining the Allman Brothers in 1989, and forming Gov't Mule in 1994, the North Carolina native has become a warrior of the road and the studio with both bands, while also serving as a lynchpin of the Phil Lesh Quintet for a lengthy period. Despite his hectic diary, Haynes has continued to stage charity fundraising events on a regular basis.

Haynes has recently resurrected the Evil Teen record label as a means of generating further charitable funds through the release of CDs and DVDs of his benefit concerts and related titles such as Mule's Live at Roseland Ballroom (Evangeline, 2002). Though the first two editions are somewhat spotty, they do achieve the additional objective of illustrating beyond-the-mainstream contemporary rock's diversity and intelligence.

Various Artists
Warren Haynes Presents The Benefit Concert Volume 1
Evil Teen
2007

The Benefit Concert Volume 1, from 1999, is not scintillating throughout, but becomes so shortly into the first disc, when tracks featuring The Derek Trucks Band appear including a sit-in by guitarist non pareil Jimmy Herring on "555 Lake." Musicianship as sharp as the sound mix reappears in a quasi-reunion of The Aquarium Rescue Unit; in their hands, the Grateful Dead's iconic "Turn On Your Lovelight" refuses to become stale. Vocalist Susan Tedeschi lends her sultry presence to the occasion.

This soulful blues woman sounds equally convincing on "Angel From Montgomery," in which she simultaneously confronts and transcends comparisons to early Bonnie Raitt. Meanwhile, the three-man powerhouse that was Gov't Mule with its original bassist, the late Allen Woody, augmented by the late guitarist/vocalist Little Milton, digs into its roots with "When The Blues Comes Knockin'." This follows another fiery interlude with Herring on "Devil Likes It Slow."

Various Artists
Warren Haynes Presents the benefit Concert Volume 2
Evil Teen
2007

Volume 2 of the series (now commonly referred to as "Christmas Jam") is also distinguished by Jimmy Herring: it contains the only officially released recordings of the Allman Brothers band featuring the guitarist, recorded on tour during 2000.

That said, "Come And Go Blues" and "Ain't Wasting Time No More" only hint at the expansive approach Herring reintroduced to AAB as he teamed with precocious guitarist Trucks and bassist Oteil Burbridge (also a charter member of ARU) in 2000. But then extended tracks wouldn't allow for the varied performances otherwise included on this double disc set. Mule's scorching take of "Goin' Out West" features Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools, effectively compensating for the emotional indulgences of guitarist/harp player John Popper. The erstwhile Blues Traveler does take part in an emotive rendition of Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released," but that's also including singer Edwin McCain who introduced the first CD with such intelligence and style as well as Warren Haynes himself.

The once and future Allman Brother and head of Gov't Mule not surprisingly sets the tone for both this set and its companion piece. Yet, with characteristic humility, there is but one true Haynes solo track, the self- referential "I'll Be The One." While each package has its forgettable intervals—"Cry Of Love" is the personification of anonymous rock, and The Bottle Rockets are almost equally generic—the memorable parts of each disc, invariably featuring Warren Haynes in one role or another, are worth returning to.
