On Saturday, July 21st, Matt Butler and The Everyone Orchestra presented the Rex Jam as a featured act of the All Good Festival.  The Rex Jam is a way to demonstrate the power of grassroots giving, where contributions of $1, $5, $10 or $20 have an immediate positive impact—collected from fans during the Jam, they go straight to the local area high school arts and music program.  2012 marked the fourth year of the Rex Jam at the All Good Festival, and raised $2,600 that was sent as a grant to Lakewood High School to support their music program.

We thank Matt Butler, the gifted artists in his Orchestra, the Rex volunteers and everyone at the All Good Festival for making it possible to generate such positive ripples.
