- A Fun Behind the Scenes Look by Randi on 7/12/2016
In 2015, I had the opportunity to experience Winter Jam firsthand as a Family Christian blogger....and I loved it...as did my children! We loved watching live performances from some of our personal favorites like Francesca Battistelli and Jeremy Camp. It truly was an amazing experience. With this DVD we get to bring that experience home with us! For those who have attended the concerts, it's a great way to experience it over and over again and to get a behind the scenes look at the stories behind the show! Not only will you hear the music and performances you loved again, you'll hear the experiences of the artists themselves! Who doesn't love digging a little bit deeper with their favorites? But even if you've never experienced a show in person- perhaps you don't live in an area with one nearby or the timing never worked out, this is still a must see. It will allow you to get a little bit of the experience you have missed! It truly is a must see not just for Winter Jam fans, but for ANY Christian music fan too!

- Experience Winter Jam from Backstage by Suzie on 6/28/2016
Despite living in one of the 50+ cities that the Winter Jam Tour has come to (and the one city where many of these artist live), I have yet to attend this tour. As a matter of fact, until I watched this DVD, I believed Winter Jam was one of Toby Mac’s creations.
So, let me start by setting the record straight. Though Toby Mac has been one of the many of the headlining acts of Winter Jam tours, it was started in one city by Newsong. You’ll have to watch the DVD to get the full story.
This 90 minute video includes interviews with artists who express thoughts on what it’s like behind the scenes (who do you think is most competitive), Jam church, fans, experienced artists mentoring to younger ones, and more. It’s fun to see some of the back stage interactions and listen to stories of lives reached by these artists.
And if you never get a chance to attend a Winter Jam show, there are plenty of performances included in this DVD (a little something for everyone). Experience the music and the heart of Winter Jam from the comfort of your living room. Maybe, just maybe, it will encourage you to attend the next show (or encourage you to invite someone else along).

- Learn More About Winter Jam by 247mama on 6/28/2016
I've wanted to go to Winter Jam for a long time, but I've never made it to a concert. I've been particularly interested the last couple of years because I think my daughter would LOVE it. This DVD seemed like a good way to get a feel for the multi-band concert. I expected it to be a recorded concert with some extra features on the bands. Actually it is an hour and a half movie about the concert that is full of information directly from the band members themselves. Well known Christian artists sit down to talk about their own Winter Jam experiences. Don't worry! There is plenty of music and on stage performances included in the movie! We got to learn about their worship during the tour and about the tour pastor. It's a great DVD full of music and face time with some of our favorite artists. It is full of great behind the scenes information on the tour and its history. It is all very clean and appropriate for most ages. There is some talk of people who have had their lives changed by the tour and some of that (near the end) may not be appropriate for younger kids. My daughter is older, and she LOVES This is Winter Jam! Now we REALLY want to go see Winter Jam!
