On Sunday, following New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival2019’s final day, Dumpstaphunk made their way to Tipitina‘s for a special late-night performance. Up-and-coming guitar virtuoso Marcus King was the evening’s featured guest, joining the band for a series of covers and impressive improvisational exploration.Dumpstaphunk—comprised of Ivan Neville, Ian Neville, Tony Hall, Nick Daniels III, and Alvin Ford Jr.—opened up their show with a full-throttle double bass duel between Tony and Nick. Following approximately an hour of Dumpstaphunk’s firey-hot funk jams, the band invited up Marcus King for the remainder of their main set. With the addition of King, the funk warriors worked through “I’d Rather Be (Blind, Crippled and Crazy)”, a soul tune originally recorded in 1973 by O.V. Wright. Dumpstaphunk and King moved forward with choice covers, including B.B. King‘s “It’s My Own Fault”, the Allman Brothers Band‘s “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’”, and a set-closing take on Led Zepplin‘s “Ramble On”.Watch pro-shot video of Dumpstaphunk’s Tipitina’s performance featuring special guest Marcus King below:Dumpstaphunk – Tipitina’s – 5/5/2019[Video: nugsnet]Next up for Dumpstaphunk is a performance at The Charleston Pour House in Charleston, SC on Thursday, May 23rd.

Press Association Arsenal spent several years being hampered by tight purse-strings as they repaid their stadium costs but have been able to take advantage of increased revenue in the past couple of seasons – bringing in the likes of club-record signing Mesut Ozil, Chile forward Alexis Sanchez and goalkeeper Petr Cech. Spurs may also require some time to start benefiting from a new home, which is proposed to be the biggest in London and will host NFL games over a 10-year period. But, ahead of Sunday’s meeting between the two at the Emirates, Arsenal boss Wenger believes the move will see Tottenham match his side. “It is the biggest challenge we face. It will be purely down to the technical quality of work,” Wenger said when asked about Spurs becoming more of a financial threat. “On a financial level, we always had level power because when we had 37,000, 38,000 seats (at Highbury) we were level. “After we moved into the new stadium we had less financial resources than them because we had to pay our debts back. That was always the case. “Now, maybe in the last two or three years we are in a stronger financial situation but that will not last because they build a new stadium as well.” On the pitch, Arsenal are keeping up the pace at the top of the table while Tottenham remain unbeaten in the league since the opening weekend of the campaign. The Gunners already have their own state-of-the-art facilities with the Emirates Stadium, and north London rivals Spurs are also set for a new 61,000-seater home in the coming years. Tottenham will move just a stone’s throw from their current White Hart Lane ground and are planning to relocate for the start of the 2018/19 season. Wenger’s men go into the game on the back of a 5-1 Champions League hammering from Bayern Munich but certainly have the players to keep their Barclays Premier League title tilt alive with victory over their rivals. Sanchez has enjoyed a strong start to the campaign while World Cup winner Ozil feels he is now able to show his best having made an uncertain start to life at Arsenal. “Last season, I was out with my knee injury for a few months,” the Germany midfielder told arsenal.com “This year I feel fit. I have no injuries and can perform well in games. At the moment, things are going really well. “But you need to praise the whole team. We fight for each other and are like a small family. You can sense that on the pitch. It shows that we are hungry for success and that’s why I want to praise the whole team.” Arsene Wenger believes Tottenham’s new stadium will eventually see them compete financially with Arsenal and provide the “biggest challenge” to the club.

Very well-done gentlemen you both did us proud.”It was also commendable for another shooter from Trinidad, Justin Lall, to comment “Very inspiring to me. You guys are the proof that it is realistic to look at the top of the list and not the bottom.”Antigua Rifle Association wrote “I wish to join in congratulating Mahendra and Lennox on their sterling performance representing Guyana and the West Indies.They have demonstrated that we can not only compete but beat some of the larger countries. I hope you take your performance into the Commonwealth Games.”Persaud and Braithwaite are now scheduled to return to Guyana where they will continue their training in preparation for Commonwealth Games 2018.The Guyana NRA would like to appeal once more for continued sponsorship from corporate Guyana and the Government in support of our shooters.The individual and team performances have been second to none and at the highest level. The team continues to be the reigning champions for both the short and long range championships in the West Indies for the last eight years.This shows the dedication and commitment of the sportsmen, and the pride they take in giving glory to Guyana on the world stage.
