Tag: Rex Musical Caravan
For several years, the Rex Musical Caravan has been a vehicle that allowed us to collaborate with musicians, artists, and others to raise funds and help good causes in their communities. With this focus on the arts, we have a great opportunity to demonstrate the power of the musical community and beyond to make a difference.
Check out these events and other creative contributions from some of the Rex supporters already on board!

Saturday night, November 23, our good friends and longtime supporter CRYPTICAL head to Fairfax, CA for a “Grateful Dead-inspired groove fest.” Contractual details prevent naming the Very Special Guest who’ll also be there playing with the band, but don’t let that keep you away!
