The Denver TRex Project Vinyl Fund

**UPDATE**
Hello friends-
We were unable to meet our goal in time for the kickstarter deadline.

The albums have already been ordered. They will still be arriving at the promised time. We are creating this go fund me page (as they do not have the restrictions of kickstarter) and humbly request that you will extend your donations via the go fund me to help us recoup the money for the albums. We will honor all rewards stated absolutely 100%

ORIGINAL REQUEST

In 2018 I, Kenny Longoria, along with Nichole McGee, started a music project showcasing local Denver bands and reimagining the songs of Marc Bolan and T.Rex. The idea was a practice of collaboration and a love letter to the scene, with an overall appreciation of the greatness of music. Old friends and new friends contributed their efforts with the promise of each person getting a vinyl record of the finished product. We covered the costs of recording at Module Overload and mastering for vinyl at The Crash Pad. We even managed to push through a pandemic to complete our task, and all the songs are now ready to print.

As we all know, life is very unpredictable, and just when the goal was within reach, we were hit with a pretty big obstacle that now looms between us and the completion of our endeavor. Receiving and treating a diagnosis of stage 4 cancer has not only affected my ability to maintain my normal life and professional career but has also forever changed how I am able to express myself through music.

To complete the final hurdle of production, we are asking friends and other music lovers to help get us there. Although my intent was always to self-finance this project, I have currently run out of resources. The good news is that we were initially going to print only as many as we needed to ensure that all of the participating artists received a copy, and now we can offer more. A monetary profit was never something that we were looking for. We will now offer a copy of this fantastic collection of music featuring 12 different bands and artists for a contribution of $40 or more. We will also send you a sticker/swag bundle, all designed by Nic McGoo, for any contributions of $20 or more. We are aiming to ship before Christmas, so the turnaround is relatively fast as we are so very close to completion. Once our goal is met, we will be out of records, so this is an extremely limited release; we do not plan to have any more pressed. We are extremely grateful to everyone that has already contributed to this appreciation of the wonder of music in our lives.

Rock On, and Thank You

Ken Longoria
