Keller Williams Releases Grateful Grass DOS for Rex
Update 10/16/14: Great review of DOS in the Mountain Weekly News!
If you were with us at the Fillmore for last year’s Nightfall of Diamonds Rex benefit, you’ll recall the amazing show from Grateful Grass (Keller Williams, Michael Kang, Keith Moseley, and Jeff Austin). Now, we’ve got some good news: You can relive the magical evening and help Rex too.
DOS, the second Keller Williams Grateful Grass album to benefit the Rex Foundation is available for digital purchase at nugs.net starting August 1, 2014, with 100% of the proceeds going to Rex.
Culled from the live recording of “Nightfall of Diamonds”- A Benefit for the Rex Foundation at The Fillmore in San Francisco on December 7, 2013, DOS features Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass with Keller (guitar), Michael Kang (violin), Jeff Austin (mandolin), and Keith Moseley (bass) performing not-so-traditional bluegrass versions of beloved Grateful Dead songs. Among the 10 tracks – “Jack Straw,” “High Time,” “Samson and Delilah,” and “Althea.” View the full track list here.
DOS is Keller’s third album benefiting the Rex Foundation. Grateful Grass’ 2008 recording, REX (Live at the Fillmore), and Keller’s 2013 solo release, KEYS: A collection of Grateful Dead Covers on Piano, have raised tens of thousands of dollars to support the grants Rex Foundation distributes to grassroots non-profit programs. “Keller’s contributions to Rex have been significant and worthwhile,” says The Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart. “We have deep appreciation for the help he has provided in serving the community we all care about.”
For Keller, it’s his honor to participate in Rex Foundation projects. “They are all about music, creativity, and community,” he explains. “It makes giving to a great cause, great fun – and it’s a perfect excuse to play Grateful Dead music.”
Our thanks to Keller and Grateful Grass for their ongoing kindness and great music!
