... that would be Furthur Foundation... with two "u"s...
on which many of us have been working over the last few months. Come on down!
We are pleased to once again have Rex Jams at the upcoming All Good, 10,000 Lakes and Gathering of the Vibes summer festivals, where the funds raised during the jams support local area high school music programs. The Detroit Lakes High School Marching Band was reactivated because of the 10,000 Lakes Festival and Rex Jam support of the last two years! Click here to learn more about each festival and the Rex Jams. We look forward to seeing you!
On August 1st, supporters of the Rex Foundation are presenting A Very Jerry Evening in Indianapolis, Indiana as a Rex Musical Caravan event in honor of Jerry Garcia. Check out these details and tell your friends in the Indiananopolis area to enjoy a great night of music.
Speaking of friends, Dark Star Orchestra is once again setting out on a month-long DSO Rex Caravan Tour of the West, from September 23 to October 17th. As you'll see on our website write-up, we're planning a Black Tie-Dye Ball on Friday, September 25th at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland to celebrate the Tour.
Check out the video recently done at the Rex office, featuring me and Rex Board members Carolyn Garcia and Nick Morgan, where we describe the positive impact of the Rex Jams and Musical Caravan events. Our main message is that your support, whether as direct contributors, musicians putting on Caravan events, or fans at festivals and other Caravan events, adds up quickly to make it possible for Rex to provide the seed grants to non-profits doing such important work. We crossed the $1 million in grants since beginning our renewal because of you!
Looking forward to seeing you this summer, with thanks,
Dr. Really recently got out the video recorder and captured Sandy Sohcot and me doing a little mini-interview about Rex.
In essence, Sandy's recapping the last eight years: why Rex was revived after the dissolution of the band, what we've been up to, who supports us and what everyone's up to.
In the next few weeks in SF: Rex Musical Caravan shows. Keller Williams, New Riders of the Purple Sage, and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals! In SoCal: Cubensis hosts Thankgiving feast and Rex karaoke! Details at rexfoundation.org.
