Event Description:

Rex Rox is an annual event in honor of local musician Rex Reynolds who lost his battle with cancer.  Rex was loved by all who met him and always had a smile to share.  To celebrate Rex’s life, every year someone fighting cancer that has ties to the local music scene is chosen to receive support from our music community.  This year we are assisting Wendy Willekens Justus who is battling stage 4 breast cancer.  Wendy has been a huge supporter of the local music community via her support of many different venues and music genres.  She is always ready to jump on stage and play her tambourine or sing a karaoke tune.  Before her battle with cancer began she was also learning how to play drums and guitar.  Wendy is employed by a  local care home and is always working to help others.

Bench Warrant, a local 80s cover band and Kool FM Battle of the Bands winner, will be hosting the event at O’Kelley’s in Mesa on December 6th, 2019.  The event starts at 9pm and will run until 1:30am.  Sons of Grunge (Rex Reynolds bandmates) and Miss Conduct will also be performing.  There will be a 50/50 raffle as well as a raffle drawing for an ESP LTD Single Cutaway Guitar (with case and extra goodies) donated by local band Straight out of Mayberry and Guitar Tommy’s music store in Chandler AZ.  You can also contribute by paying $10 to jump on stage with the band from 11:30pm to 12:30am to play or sing a song; all proceeds will go to Wendy.  She also has a gofundme account at https://au.gofundme.com/f/txarpv-help-me-beat-cancer.
