Warren Haynes is one of the classiest guys in all of rock n roll (along with Chuck Leavell & Derek Trucks). Thanks for the good deeds and work Warren!

God Bless them both (and the varoius artists, crew, etc who have participated). And this generous and loving gift from someone who would by no means be classified a multi-billionaire. It's wonderful and heart warming to hear about someone sharing the blessings of their lives with those less fortunate.

I know that people like Bill and Melinda Gates have made a commitment to share their wealth with the needy of the world - would be nice to hear even more of these types of stories (I mean really - how much money does a person really need, anyhow ... after it gets into that billionaire stratosphere it's all just gravy ... gravy that could maybe poured on some pour souls rice to offer nutrition)

Where the Habitat houses are built in Asheville they even have a street named Warren Haynes. That would be cool having his name for your address.....We cant say enough good about Warren. The guy makes it happen.

I already have a motel room reserved on the 15th. Better get your rooms before the official announcement, the room rates double then.

Habitat, musicians help rebuild New Orleans

Erin Brethauer
October 23, 2007 12:15 am

Under a cool, gray Louisiana sky Monday, the pouring rain stopped long
enough for musician Warren Haynes to place a set of life-changing keys
in the hands of Thomas McDonald.

The keys open the door to a home brightly painted in orange along
Bartholomew Street in the Musicians' Village of New Orleans and
represent for the new homeowner "a shot at a future."

"I'm finally going to own a piece of the place I've lived in my whole
life," said McDonald, 38. "This is wonderful."

McDonald, a bass player with four to five different bands in The
Crescent City, will not be the only musician on the block.

Centered around eight acres in the Upper Ninth Ward, the Musicians'
Village is a small pocket of hope for returning musician's and
low-income families hoping to rebuild in New Orleans. Plans call for
the village to include 300 Habitat homes.

Supported by famous national musicians like Harry Connick Jr., Dave
Matthews, Branford Marsalis and Warren Haynes, the village was
specifically started to foster support for the city's cherished
musical artists.

"There's nothing like New Orleans. It is America's richest musical
city," said Haynes, who has been performing on and off in the city for
27 years, "It's a travesty to see all those people in New Orleans
forced out or reluctant to come back. All Americans, beginning with
American musicians, need to get involved."

Of the artists Haynes has known over his successful career, he always
notices there is something different about the players from New Orleans.

"All the musicians that are raised in New Orleans learn to play in
such a unique way," says Haynes, an Asheville native who has earned
acclaim for his guitar work and songwriting with The Grateful Dead,
The Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule. "It's like they're speaking a
different language."

The home in the Musicians' Village was funded with $75,000 from the
2006 Christmas Jam concert that Haynes holds every year in Asheville.

The concert last year raised $127,200 to support the house in New
Orleans and a home in the Enka Hills subdivision.

Along with the keys, Asheville Habitat volunteers who are in New
Orleans to start work on a new Habitat house, presented McDonald with
a toolbox, flowers, a Bible, a loaf of bread and a bottle of wine,
gifts that represent hard work, guidance, nourishment and companionship.

"I had tears in my eyes," said Melissa Rush, an Asheville Habitat
volunteer who presented McDonald the bottle of wine.

Orleans, LA 70175-5052.

Asheville and New Orleans Habitat Trip

For two weeks, volunteers from Asheville will be working in New Orleans through Habitat for Humanity to build a house in memory of William Henry Stevens, an artist whose work reflected the beauty of nature in the Appalachian Mountains and the Louisiana bayous.

Another habitat house, funded by Warren Haynes' Christmas Jam fun was dedicated in the Musicians' Village Monday, October 22, 2007.

Thanks for sharing this, Angela. It's wonderful to read about anybody's generousity to another in need and it's really special to know that Warren is the kind of guy who shares his blessings with others. The pictures in the linked story are great! Warren presenting the keys to Mr. McDonald then McDonald jamming with Warren later at Cafe Negril. Kudos to Warren Haynes and the other muscians who are helping with the rebuilding effort in New Orleana!!!

Does anyone know how many homes Habitat has been able to build with the Christmas Jam funds? $127,000 does not seem much when building a home.

Actually the majority of the costs of the home are paid for by the new Owner. What most people don't realize is that the houses aren't given away. They are subsidized by generous contributions, but the new Owner is given a mortgage that they can handle. The Owners must be gainfully employed and also have to put in a lot of hours building other houses to be elegible....so $127,000 can make a huge difference.

Yeah I thought it was pretty cool of Warren to sit in that night at a local jam and that Thomas got to play with him. I have no idea who any of the guys were at the jam. I wonder what the set list was. Was there a taper? LOL.

Here's some photos from last year 06 when Warren gave out the keys to a new home in Asheville due to money that was raised the year before.










This one is from the 2005 Jam when Warren got a street in Asheville named after him.

I have a very strong feeling Mr Haynes does many other good deeds that we will never hear about. I am proud to be a fan.

I doubt I could go to the show even if I could get a ticket but I'll throw in $25 to add to the pot if someone might get a Habitat address in Ashville. I'll just include a note saying it's in honor of Warren and Stefani.

And don't forget, for the few that don't know, Stefani is on Sirius 17 in the afternoons where Mr. Haynes is often a guest. She spreads the love among the ABB family of bands.

Warren Haynes sits in at Cafe Negril
Posted by Keith I. Marszalek October 23, 2007 9:06AM
Warren Haynes

Gov't Mule and Allman Brothers guitarist Warren Haynes made a surprise
appearance on Frenchmen Street last night performing at Cafe Negril
before a packed house of "those in the know."

The show attracted several hundred music lovers to the rain soaked
neighborhood.

When asked how this show came about, the man working the door
commented, "A friend called a friend, who called some friends and it
just all came together."

You just gotta love New Orleans.
