There are many threads about the Christmas Jam. We're always hearing folks say that Warren Haynes is the hardest working man in Rock and Roll. I must add that behind every hard working person there is another harder working person and that is Brian Farmer

He is a machine. There was one hell of a stage in Asheville this past weekend. I guessed that it was the width of the Civic Center wide and probably 80ft deep. Loaded with so much equipment it must had been a logistical nightmare arranging it all in order to pull off the show.


But I wanted to say Thanks to Brian Farmer for pulling it all off so smoothly. The man did not stop all week. Back and Forth from one side to the other, He is a wire rolling machine too. We all love to talk about the music and sometimes forget to thank the folks that are constantly behind the scenes busting their butts so we can satisfy our musical thirsts......


Thanks Brian!!!


I doubt he would ever see this, but if anyone bumps in to him or knows him well enough, call him and tell him thanks for what he does for us.

Ill agree with that whole heartedly. I sat behind the stage and Brian never stopped the whole time. He works tirelessly to make sure everything runs smoothly and doesnt seem to mind doing anything that is asked of him. Brian, thanks for all you do and for making the music and bands that we love move along like a well oiled machine. You are the man! (I used to have a shirt that said BRIAN F#$&ING FARMER, but i ripped it right up the middle and havent gotten another one made yet)

Cool initiative. Everytime i watched the stage during these two marathon days Brian Farmer was "on the job". During the performances and even more during set breaks.
Unbelievable. Kudos to him.

We also watched from behind the stage and he was working hard, not just for Warren but everyone. Not just during breaks, but when music was being played he was often "running" or hiding behind an amp to help pass picks or whatever. Never saw Reddog in action, but he was super roadie, alll weekend

From what I have heard, Brian is a really cool dude. Before the sat. Chastain show, I saw him getting something signed for a fan up front. As busy as he always is before a show, he took time out for that fan.

Classy guy for sure!

Brian Farmer is the reason the jam happened as well as it did. Him, the Mule road crew and the stage crew of of Civic Center this past weekend were the real heroes of the Jam.

Brian Farmer's the best - he works hard behind (and sometimes in front of) the scenes! And he's a nice guy to boot!
