Before Keller Williams hits the road this summer, he'll release a live, February 8, 2006 Grateful Grass performance. The digital only release, titled REX (Live at the Fillmore), will be available beginning April 29, 2008.  Grateful Grass - which featured Williams, Keith Moseley (The String Cheese Incident), and Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band) - performed not-so-traditional bluegrass versions of Grateful Dead favorites one winter night in Denver.  The vibe in the packed house was thick and sweet; the crowd was whisper quiet, when they weren't singing along. 100% of the proceeds from REX (Live at the Fillmore) will go to benefit The Rex Foundation, the charitable non-profit started by the Grateful Dead which gives grants to worthwhile causes.

REX  Track List:
01 One More Saturday Night
02 Mississippi Half Step Uptown Toodeloo
03 Eyes Of The World
04 Candyman
05 Loose Lucy
06 Black Peter
07 St. Stephen
08 Casey Jones
09 Brown Eyed Women
