Now approaching the quarter-century mark, the Rex Foundation is the nonprofit the Dead founded in the '80s. Several Rex folks are here already, so I turn the discussion over to them!
speaking as one who works on the Rex site, I would heartily encourage you to check out rexfoundation.org for your own self. Here are the most recent grantees..
Also, check out this video from the December 1 Fillmore benefit...
W/examples of recent projects funded. Or a link to an article on another site.
Rex Foundation at GOTV
I will be assisting a young musician named Henry Sidle with a presentation he's doing on behalf of the Rex Foundation, Friday at 3:45pm on the Green Vibes Stage. Henry will also play his new song Sunday afternoon on SiriusXM's "Tales form the Golden Road," which we will be broadcasting live 4-6pm from the Rhino/GDP booth in the main merch tent at GOTV .
too far for me, but I hope we get a good report and lots of fine pix!
Tomorrow night at ARCO Arena? Going to be a real fun night!
check out Bill Walton's Dead tribute with the Sacramento Kings, also benefiting Rex! February 9 at ARCO Arena. Sacramento Heads take note!
If you were thinking of starting off next year with the Jam Cruise (and given the lineup, who can blame you...), the promoter is offering a cool way to book your cabin and have some of the proceeds go to Rex--check it out here.
Thanks for the interview Marye, good to learn about the work Jorma's doing. I remember seeing him play a solo acoustic show a long,long time ago at McCabe's guitar shop in Santa Monica, it was pretty awesome!
which I certainly had fun doing, is here. We're working on getting audio; we'll see how that turns out...
There's a listening party at nugs.net this week, and all the download info is there too. Here's more info on the release: http://rexfoundation.org/2010/08/05/jerry-jams-for-rex/.
