Warren Haynes, the host of the 28th Annual Christmas Jam, kicked off the evening with a couple of solo tunes. Well, actually Holly Bowling took the opening slot, but Warren officially welcomed everyone with his set.
After “The Real Thing,” Uncle Warren crooned on one of his favorite tunes, Van Morrison’s “And It Stoned Me.” Warren has performed this tune dozens, if not hundreds of times and takes some liberties with the ending of the song.
A huge thanks to Tom Libera for the great front row footage. Check out his channel for more footage from Christmas Jam.
