    Jackie Greene is the sleeper. Saw him w/ Phil Lesh at Bonnaroo. Interesting guy.

  2. Doug Sahm

    Well this lineup is certainly, uh, interesting.

    Regardless, thank you, Warren, for holding this great charitable event here in our great city every year! Looking forward to the details of the great XMas Jam By Day events this year.

    I agree with the Jackie Green comment .. I don’t know about the Prince of Americana title he has picked up but his shows are pretty strong.

    I really like this lineup…Sure its a little unconventional, but that’s a good thing. Jackie Green is solid and Ani is a great choice. If you think she’s a let down, then you’ve never seen her live. I’m looking forward to seeing Audley Freed also.
