On Tuesday, Live for Live Music presented the third edition of The Funk Sessions, a new monthly residency based at Denver, CO’s Cervantes’ Other Side. The Funk Sessions features a rotating cast of players from across the funk and jam scenes playing in unique and creative lineups. Each month’s lineup centers around a host artist and a hand-picked, curated lineup of colleagues, friends, and musicians whom they admire.Of course, it wouldn’t be The Funk Sessions without a very special surprise. At the first edition of the residency in January, the show closed with a surprise brass band second line parade through the crowd and up to the stage. In February, the first 400 people through the door got a free slice of pizza. This month, The Funk Sessions promised a very special surprise opener—which the crowd was ecstatic to discover was powerhouse Memphis quintet Southern Avenue. Check out the full video of Southern Avenue’s surprise opening set at The Funk Sessions below:Southern Avenue – Surprise Opening Set – The Funk Sessions – 3/26/19<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>[Video: Jack Gould/Ninja Video]Last night’s March edition of The Funk Sessions was hosted by Michelangelo Carubba, drummer for Brooklyn-based funk powerhouse Turkuaz. Mikey was joined by keyboardist Todd Stoops (RAQ), percussionist Jeff Franca (Thievery Corporation/Congo Sanchez), bassist Garrett Sayers (The Motet), guitarist Ryan Jalbert (The Motet), vocalist Lyle Divinsky (The Motet), saxophonist Nicholas Gerlach aka “Mr. Invoice” (Michal Menert & The Pretty Fantastics), trumpet player Gabriel Mervine (formerly of The Motet), and more for his sold-out session.The all-star cast of musicians opened up the Tuesday night funk affair with James Brown‘s “Brother Rapp”. Mikey made it clear that he was ready to funk Denver up within the opening minutes of the show, locking into a tight-knit rhythmic groove with Sayers. The band continued in the James Brown groove as they moved forward with “Ain’t It Funky Now”, followed by Chuck Brown & The Soul Searchers‘ “Bustin’ Loose”. Backed by Gerlach and Mervine’s potent horn section, Mikey and his musical comrades invited the Denver crowd to get down and boogie, with TAUK’s Isaac Teel adding some auxiliary percussion.The band changed gears with Funkadelic‘s “Red Hot Mama”, giving Jalbert a chance to flex his chops with a series of explosive guitar solos. Divinsky and special guest Michelle Sarah dazzled the crowd with their jaw-dropping vocal prowess, alongside Mikey’s infectious snare hits from behind the kit. Up next was Earth, Wind & Fire deep cut “Kalimba Story”, highlighted by Sayers’ aggressive approach on the song’s main bass line. The band then invited up Michelle Sarah back up for a take on “I Like It” by Space Capone, a band with whom Mikey implored the crowd to get familiar.Sold-out crowd’s energy was clearly evident as these behemoths of funk moved forward with Marvin Gaye‘s “Got To Give It Up”, which included Teel and local percussionist Will Trask lending some extra hands. Divinisky continued to shine on lead vocals, challenging himself with some high vocals before unveiling the third James Brown song of the night, “Mother Popcorn”. Gerlach and Mervine heated things up with spicy horn licks as Divinsky broke it down in a fashion that would have made the Godfather of Soul proud. Special guest Reed Mathis took over the bass duties from there as Carubba powered the band into Al Green‘s “Love and Happiness”.The all-star squad kept on chuggin’ with “Roller”, highlighted by some spacey synth work out of Stoops’ corner and a silky-smooth saxophone solo from Gerlach. The horn-heavy vibe continued into Freddie Hubbard‘s “Red Clay”, which was followed by noteworthy renditions of Michael McDonald‘s “I Keep Forgetting”, Tower of Power‘s “What Is Hip”, and a raucous set-closing take on Funkadelic’s “Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On”.Luckily, you can watch a full pro-shot video of last night’s performance below:Live For Live Music Presents: The Funk Sessions – 3/26/19[Video: Jack Gould/Ninja Video]Setlist: The Funk Sessions with Mike Carubba | Cervantes’ Other Side | Denver, CO | 3/26/2019Set: Brother Rapp, Ain’t It Funky Now, Bustin’ Loose*, Red Hot Mama^, Kalimba Story, I Like It^, Got To Give It Up&, Mother Popcorn, Love and Happiness#, Roller, Red Clay, I Keep Forgetting, What Is Hip, Standing On the Verge Of Getting It On*with Isaac Teel (TAUK)^with Michele Sarah&with Isaac Teel, Will Trask#with Reed MathisBuilding on the excitement of last night’s sold-out blowout, Live For Live Music has announced the details for the April edition of The Funk Sessions.

CAF PRESIDENCYThe Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is backing a challenge to the long-serving President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Issa Hayatou.Mr Hayatou is standing for an eighth successive term of office, but faces opposition from Ahmad Ahmad, the head of Madagascar’s FA. Hayatou has been in the saddle since 1988.Amaju Pinnick, president of the NFF, told the BBC the election will be “a defining moment for African football”. He said Ahmad was “courageous” in coming forward to challenge Mr Hayatou.Pinnick said CAF needs a “new generation” of leadership, following the change at the top of the world governing body FIFA.He cited “post-election differences between Gianni (Infantino, the new FIFA president) and Issa Hayatou which are irreconcilable”.Infantino will be in Johannesburg later on Tuesday for a gathering of football federation leaders from across the continent.He is then due to visit Zimbabwe at the invitation of the head of the southern African confederation, COSAFA – which also backs Ahmad.Pinnick acknowledged that Hayatou could still win – but said if he did, the veteran Cameroonian would need to be open to different influences.“You have to listen to a larger audience instead of just a tiny cabal, you have to know it goes beyond you,” Pinnick said.“I will definitely work with him if he wins but my prayer is we need a bridge builder and that person is Ahmad.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

Ahead of counting of votes in the State, a sense of uncertainty prevails in the Opposition camp. The Congress is especially trying to stay optimistic after the discouraging results the exit polls have predicted for the party.A senior Congress leader, who contested the Assembly polls, said, “We have fought well in the places where we have contested. Our candidates stood firm in the face of the BJP’s money power and propaganda machinery. Yes, the exit poll predictions are discouraging for the party, but we hope to put up a better performance than 2014.”Meanwhile, the party workers are unhappy over the lacklustre poll campaign across the State. The Congress campaign could not even match the impressive efforts put in by its ally the Nationalist Congress Party. Of the 40 star campaigners of the Congress, 15 did not address even a single public meeting in the State. None of the party’s leaders in the State, except for State unit president Balasaheb Thorat, held rallies in double digits. The party also failed to provide monetary and logistical support to its candidates. A party functionary on condition of anonymity said, “Only candidates who were individually strong enough to fight the polls stood their ground. On the ground, there was simmering anger against the BJP, but we failed to channelise it. If the results on Thursday are different from the exit polls, it will only be because of the efforts of workers at the grass roots and not the State leaders.”On the party’s chances of becoming the main opposition in the State, a Congress leader from Delhi said, “I cannot say anything now. I do not trust exit polls. They have proved to be wrong in the past. These polls have predicted a sweep for the BJP in Haryana, but things are totally different for the party there. We may even be in a position to form the government there. We expect something similar to happen in Maharashtra.”

Whilst as you Premier, and as a woman, I support the daily recognition of our women, as wives, as mothers, as sisters, as daughters, and as friends, today is especially marked for the reminiscence of the women who throughout time have endured the struggle and those who led and fought the fight for equality within their nations. Industrially, it has been a long but good fight for the women of many countries and indeed it has been a victorious fight for the women of these Turks and Caicos Islands.Over the years we have witnessed the evolution of the role of the woman from predominance in the home, to predominance in the school, to predominance in the workplace, and in recent years, predominance in politics. In fact, the non-traditional role of the woman has overtaken the role of males in many aspects and the paradigm shift has seen gender inequality tipping towards the male in 2017.Whilst our success as women industrially is significant and should be celebrated, we must also strive to strike and maintain the balance as the career professional woman and the nurturer family woman to ensure that there is no renunciation of our role in the home and the society, and that we continue to play our part as mothers, wives and as participants in civic and social organizations.We must continue to support the family unit realizing that, as feminists, we are ultimately responsible for the teaching and nurturing of our children through love, kindness, helpfulness and as the weavers of the moral and social fabric of our society.In recognition of the role that women play in our lives, we must also recommit to the support, edification and protection of our women. We must make every effort to ensure proper legislations, policies and facilities are in place and functional for the protection of our women. I am therefore calling on Governments the world over to do our utmost to ensure that our women and our girls are protected from domestic abuse and violence, and protected from rape, molestation and other sexual offences.Finally, let us also ensure that we continue to provide the fundamental access to systems and programs that will support female development and success, today an long into the future, so that we, as women, continue to be lifted up, honored, supported and recognized for the profound role that we play the world over and especially in these beautiful by nature Turks and Caicos Islands.Press release: TCIG Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo
Former Barcelona star Ronald de Boer predicts great things from Frenkie de Jong in the future and added that Lionel Messi will love having him aroundThe 21-year-old midfielder finally ended months of speculation over his future by agreeing to join Barcelona for next season on a five-year contract in a €75m deal along with bonuses of €11m.De Jong’s passing and ball-carrying skills have earned plenty of admirers with former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola among them.And De Boer, who works as an Ajax A1 assistant manager, believes De Jong will prove to be a great coup for Barcelona and expects Messi will love playing in the same team as him.“De Jong has Ajax DNA which is nearly the same as Barcelona DNA, he is intelligent, he always has good ideas, he never plays without thinking. Messi will fall in love with De Jong,” said De Boer, according to Sport.The former Netherlands international made 37 appearances for Barcelona in his sole campaign at Camp Nou during the 1999/2000 season.Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.And De Boer is clearly delighted that De Jong chose to move to Barcelona over Paris Saint-Germain and is confident the youngster will bring something different to the Blaugrana.“For me, he is more a Barca player than a PSG player, he will fit them perfectly,” he added:“He’s a different player and is not afraid of dribbling and waiting for the opportune moment to give the ball.“He will have [Sergio] Busquets as a professor to learn from in the first year and after that Busi can hand the role over to De Jong. He can also play in the Xavi and Iniesta position but the No 6 position is his best role.”De Jong, who has managed four goals and one assist in 28 appearances this season, will now turn his focus back to Ajax’s KNVB Cup game against Heerenveen tonight at 20:45 (CET).
