My Morning Jacket headlines Sandy benefit in Asbury Park with Nicole Atkins & others; Jim James readies solo record

Sandy Relief

My Morning Jacket will join Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Joseph Arthur, Nicole Atkins, River City Extension, Tangiers Blues Band and special guests for a Hurricane Sandy Benefit at Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ on January 2, 2013:

“Following Hurricane Katrina, the response from around the world was overwhelming,” say Ben Jaffe, creative director of Preservation Hall Jazz Band. “Now it’s our time to give back to a devastated community where many of our friends, family and supporters call home. In New Orleans, we turn to our music during hard times. It offers us hope and the feeling that things will be better. We are doing what we always do during hard times: celebrate life. Hopefully this will bring some joy to the residents of the devastated region at a time of great heartache.”

Proceeds from the show will benefit multiple Jersey Shore-related charities, including Coastal Habitat for Humanity, The Food Bank of Monmouth/Ocean Counties, Waves for Water, Food For Thought By The Sea, and RebuildRecover. In addition, MMJ will donate a portion of every ticket sold to their upcoming shows at Capitol Theatre in Port Chester and in Boston at Agganis Arena to charity as well.

In other news, Jim James is preparing to release his solo LP Regions of Light & Sound of God, due on February 5. Check out “Know Til Now” below, and preorder your copy if so desired.
