Warren Haynes at the Tabernacle in Atlanta on Oct. 10

The passion of Warren Haynes.
It was all about the music at Tabernacle on Oct. 10, as ChessBoxer and Justin Townes Earle's unique sounds opened for Warren Haynes.

ChessBoxer, is three-piece string band, which features banjoist Matt Menefee, violinist Ross Holmes and upright bassist Royal Masat. From their inspired original pieces, to traditional tunes of the American vernacular, ChessBoxer is at the forefront of one of the most important renaissance periods of American music.

Justin Townes Earle is an American singer-songwriter and musician. He is a son of alternative country artist Steve Earle and is named after Townes Van Zandt. Justin does what many country artists don't -- he puts the blues back into country, and it's really good!

And then it happened, Warren Haynes took the stage with members of ChessBoxer and drummer Jeff Snipe, and wowed the audience from beginning to end.  Being a long-time member of the legendary Allman Brothers Band, it was most fitting that he opened with Dickey Betts' Jessica, a song named after Betts' daughter, but written as a tribute to Gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt.

I could go on and on telling you how wonderful he was ... instead I'll tell you what he played.  The set list is below:
