Rex & Friends Unplugged
Musical Direction by Laurie Grant

Led by Rex Lewis-Clack, the 23-year-old blind and autistic pianist hailed as a musical savant by "60 Minutes," this is an extraordinary variety show featuring music and humor. Accompanied by a live band, performers will cover a breadth of musical genres, from American standards to classical, jazz to rock, R&B to rap. Rex & Friends offers support and training in musical abilities, and performance opportunities, for individuals in Southern California who have different disabilities.
Rex & Friends
Rex & Friends is a program that provides musical support and training as well as performance opportunities for individuals who are blind and/or on the autism spectrum. Both of these disabilities tend to isolate and the program is geared to help bridge this isolation. We bring these musicians together to provide ongoing professional support and guidance. Participants develop musical repertoire in an environment that is sure to grow friendships, self-esteem, and skill while rehearsing and ultimately performing in front of live audience.
