Get Familiar with The New Familiars

Justin Fedor, Josh Daniel, Daniel Flynn, and Patrick Maholland all grew up playing music in some form or fashion and together make up The New Familiars. Together they’ve created a crew of thick-skinned, rowdy, determined musicians and songwriters. Multi-instrumentalist talents of Justin and Josh keeps the ever evolving sound. Willie Nelson, The Band, My Morning Jacket, and Otis Redding are named as a few of their heroes. They’ve shared the stage opening or closing shows with Johnny Neel (Allman Brothers), Levon Helm (The Band), Del McCoury, Emmitt-Nershi Band, and the Infamous Stringdusters. They’re also happy to be in their fifth year in the festival circuit.

“It’s American rock and roll” they’ll tell you. As much as they love bluegrass, rock and roll, and country, they skirt along the edge of all three. Blossoming out of a music scene that’s birthed loads of bands that blur and bend genre lines, The New Familiars happily sit in that place. Regardless, they’ll keep you on your feet, and that’s the important part right?

Their album Between the Moon & The Morning Light is a milestone for their career, which brought band member changes, and united the members that remained. Songs about love, luck, traveling the road, and finding one’s place in the world are what will be heard on Between the Moon & The Morning Light. Recorded by Joe Kuhlmann at 34th & Hudson in Charlotte, North Carolina, and mixed by Dave Glasser at Airshow in Boulder, Colorado.

Guests like Bob Crawford (Avett Brothers),Tania Elizabeth (the Duhks, Mary Gauthier), Sam Quinn, assure a level of energy, quality, and talent that The New Familiars plan to continue to share throughout their recordings and touring.

Jammin' With Rex: Dec. 13th Party with Grace Potter & The Nocturnals

Join us on Sunday, December 13th: Meet Grace Potter and The Nocturnals at a pre-concert party and enjoy their music at The Fillmore in San Francisco.  Our party will feature a special beer tasting compliments of San Francisco's Magnolia Brewery.

Now through December: Grateful Graphics will contribute to Rex $2 of every website purchase.

Purchase the special Rex Foundation 25th Anniversary Poster designed by Stanley Mouse as a gift for yourself or others.

As to direct contributions, consider Jammin' with Rex: Make a Gift ~ Get a Gift, where with your contribution of $25 you can choose either some delicious Rex Jam - a jar of organic strawberry spread made by Sweet Creek Foods or the 3-disc Jerry Jams-Jerry Cares CD.

Just as with the Rex Community Caravan that we started a few years ago to encourage contributions of $5 or more, we hope Jammin' with Rex is another way you can enjoy helping fund more and more programs like those receiving our recent grants.

It is because of the generous support you have provided these last eight years of renewal that the Rex Foundation has been able to distribute just over $1.1 million in seed grants to over 200 programs, now totaling $8.5 million in grants to over 1,000 programs across the U.S. and internationally since our inception in 1983.  Your support also enables us to produce events and create The World As It Could Be Human Rights Education Project .  This demonstrates the power of grassroots giving in every dimension - your contribution dollars, whether $5, $50, $500 or more, add up quickly to connect us as a philanthropic community, making a positive difference in many ways.
