DSO Rex Caravan Tour

photo(s) by Phil Emma- for the Grateful Web

Critically acclaimed for the live embodiment of the Grateful Dead's music and spirit, Dark Star Orchestra is partnering with The Rex Foundation to personify another quintessential aspect of America's most-loved live band.  With the 'DSO Rex Caravan Tour' Dark Star Orchestra is creating a model to further the Grateful Dead tradition started 24 years ago: tapping into the entire concert community of musicians, promoters, producers and fans to help the Rex Foundation support great grassroots programs across the U.S. and internationally.

 

Beginning with their performance at The Showbox Wednesday, September 26, and continuing through their entire month-long fall tour, Dark Star Orchestra will contribute $1 of each ticket sold to the Grateful Dead-founded Rex Foundation.  DSO will also be providing a venue for Rex's 'Community Caravan,' a grassroots contribution campaign encouraging people to get involved with philanthropy through a donation of $5 or more.

 

In the fall of 1983, friends and members of the Grateful Dead established the Rex Foundation as a non-profit charitable organization that enabled them to proactively provide extensive community support to creative endeavors in the arts, sciences, and education. Since 1984 the Rex Foundation has granted $8.2 million to some 1,000 recipients.  The Rex Foundation mission is to help secure a healthy environment, promote individuality in the arts, provide support to critical and necessary social services, assist others less fortunate than ourselves, protect the rights of indigenous people and ensure their cultural survival, build a stronger community, and educate children and adults everywhere.

The Rex Foundation launched its renewal in the absence of direct Grateful Dead concert funding 6 years ago, and DSO has been an avid supporter from the very beginning.  They performed at Rex benefit fundraisers including the April 2002 event at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, a March 2004 inaugural 'Black Tie-Dye Ball' in Chicago, and an additional 'Black Tie-Dye Ball' in Washington, DC in December of 2005.   This fall's DSO tour partners with The Rex Foundation, thereby bringing to life the Rex 'Community Caravan,' an ongoing philanthropic campaign connected by the music, creative spirit and care for the greater good.

 

Dark Star Orchestra performs Grateful Dead classics in the same way that an orchestra interprets music of classical composers.  The composer spirit is derived and channeled in the live setting as the players capture the excitement and innovation of the original performances and compositions.

 

Touring nationwide for nearly 10 years, performing over 1400 shows since its formation, the band's determined commitment to 'raising the Dead' has drawn national media attention: Rolling Stone praises "Dark Star Orchestra's fanatical attention to detail." USA Today says DSO is "channeling the Dead" and the Washington Post declares them "the hottest Grateful Dead tribute act going." Dallas Morning News affirms DSO is "the next best thing to being there"; the Denver Post describes Dark Star Orchestra as "a perfection-oriented practitioner of homage" and the Associated Press notes that DSO "takes its act to a level of detail that befits a rock band famous for its fanatical following."

 

Critics aren't the only ones singing Dark Star Orchestra 's praises.  Five original members of the Grateful Dead have played alongside DSO and have had this to say:

 

"A couple of times when I had my back to John (Kadlecik) onstage and he started to sing, I had this weird sense that it was Jerry." – Bob Weir, Grateful Dead co-founder/vocalist/guitarist

 

"Playing with Dark Star Orchestra is something that feels just exactly like it felt when I was playing with the Grateful Dead." – Donna Jean Godchaux, Grateful Dead vocalist.

 

Made up of Rob Barracco (multiple keyboardists), Rob Eaton (Bob Weir), Dino English (Bill Kreutzmann), John Kadlecik (Jerry Garcia), Rob Koritz (Mickey Hart), Lisa Mackey (Donna Jean Godchaux), and Kevin Rosen (Phil Lesh), Dark Star Orchestra does not try to match Grateful Dead live songs note for note.  The band instead seeks the individual style for each era of its performances and offers its own interpretations and improvisations of a group also famed and loved for their interpretations and improvisation.  Anything more formulaic would quickly dispel the free spirit embodied in the music.

 

Dark Star Orchestra isn't a cover band.  Its shows are not even meant as tributes.  What Dark Star Orchestra achieves is a continuation of the spirit of what has now become over forty years of the Grateful Dead's timeless music. Presently, on this tour to assist the Rex Foundation, DSO is carrying on the altruistic vision of the Grateful Dead as well and sharing the concept of community to future generations of Deadheads.

Additional food drives to be announced. For more information visit www.conciousalliance.org.

Conscious Alliance is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to the redistribution of much needed food to the impoverished communities of the United States.  They operate an ongoing, national grassroots food collection and hunger awareness program. In short – they organize food drives at concerts and sporting events to collect food donations to benefit local food pantries and impoverished Indian reservations throughout the U.S.

Since their first event in 2002, Conscious Alliance has hosted hundreds of food drives at many events, including such music festivals as Bonnaroo, Power to the Peaceful, and the Langerado Music Festival, and for such artists as Jack Johnson, Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Dead, The String Cheese Incident, and many, many others. The net result: the redistribution of over 300 tons of food – and counting!

During a Hurricane Katrina benefit concert in 2005, The Conscious Alliance teamed up with the Dave Matthews Band, resulting in the collection of over 30,000 lbs. of food and over $70,000 in donation money that supported the disaster relief efforts.

Also in the fall of 2005, Conscious Alliance completed the first phase of Project Restoration, a project that created a brand new food storage and distribution facility on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, in South Dakota.  The facility provides emergency food relief to hundreds of families each month, and phase two of the project is currently in progress.

As former Grateful Dead drummer and current Rex board member Mickey Hart stated, "Rex is all about finding ways to make a better world where others don't really go.  It's one of those in-the-cracks kinds of organizations. It was always meant to do things that we considered important but weren't necessarily mainstream or popular."

The Rex Foundation supports groups and individuals doing vital work in local communities, service organizations and the arts, especially those that can serve as models and inspiration elsewhere. From the beginning, grant recipients have been grassroots efforts too small to register on the radar of large-scale charitable foundations.

"With 23 years of grant-making history, there are many examples of how support of grassroots organizations makes a positive difference," says Sandy Sohcot, Executive Director.  "Now, as we build an ever-expanding grassroots philanthropic community, we enthusiastically further what the Grateful Dead started to benefit people and communities far and wide."

The Rex Foundation's commitment to the grassroots extends to its fundraising, a key component of which is local benefit concerts around the country, known as Black Tie-Dye Balls. They bring together musicians, fans, and local community groups, building philanthropic synergy in a fun and creative environment. And, in contrast to charities that focus on courting big donors, Rex fosters broad community participation with the Rex Community Caravan, a program that welcomes donations of $5 or more.

In a time characterized by a frequent sense of darkness and gloom, the Rex Foundation works to provide an antidote by rekindling hope, optimism and a sense of community, encouraging people to engage in vital civic and community activities, such as voting, participating in local government, neighborhood associations, and social action efforts — as Gandhi said, "to be the change they want."
