I apologize for my absence and I’m saddened to miss one of my favorite events of the year. Have a great time on the boat and I hope to see you all again soon.” Everyone Orchestra conductor Matt Butler will replace Hollingsworth as Jam Room conductor on night one.

Chris Karuda appeared at Warren’s Christmas Jam a few years ago. I figured that meant he would do one of the special sets and that would be it. That maniacal genius did the lights for the ENTIRE show (8-9 hours). I talked to him after it was all over and he couldn’t have been any cooler. Classy guy and best in the business.
