Melvin Seals Joins Cats Under The Stars For Incredible Jerry Garcia Tribute [Full Audio]


first_imgMelvin Seals joined Cats Under the Stars at The Flying Monkey Movie House & Performance Center for a special performance in Plymouth, NH last Friday, March 11th. The evening was a pre-party celebration for the upcoming Jerry Jam Festival to be held in Bath, NH from July 21-24. Cats Under the Stars includes Josh Dobbs on keys, Brian Harris on bass, Zach Nugent on guitar, and Joe Chapman on drums. Joining them for the evening were Heidi Harris and Devin Noel on vocals. The evening opened with a jamming warm-up-the-audience set by Otis Grove, a band from Boston who will also be performing at the summer fest.When Cats took the stage, the audience was brought back to 1964 with a cover Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is to be Loved by You.” Seals’ fingers danced around the keys as the band brought the venue into party mode for the evening. A slow jam created a calm mood as they eased into “He Ain’t Give You None.” The energy quickly picked up as the notes dove into an organ filled, guitar rollin’ “Ain’t No Bread in the Breadbox.” Harris slapped out bass tones, dripping of funky vibes, as Chapman kept the beat moving, taking the audience on a wild ride. Nugent’s smooth voice and sleek guitar slid right into “I’ll Take A Melody,” prompting the angelic vocals of Harris and Noel to be brought to the forefront as they filled the spaces with creamy tones. An upbeat “Strugglin’ Man” kept fans grooving with a sunshine-glow summery feel as Dobbs joined in for his first appearance in the set, before progressing into an easy “The Maker.” “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love” was crammed with enthusiasm as Nugent took the crowd on an unrestrained trip through the melody. Seals prompted a playful back and forth with the organ and guitar, building the jam into an ever growing bubble of energy that was ready to burst at the seams. The improvisation took off to insane heights as the song progressed midway. The venue was dripping in sweat from the heat being thrown from the musicians. It was one scorching tune that had the audience reacting with whistles and screams of excitement.“Senor (Tales of Yankee Power)” brought the audience down with a chill vibe. Seals’ keys, once again along with Nugent’s crisp guitar, grasped the song with a melancholy tone. “Dear Prudence” brought Dobbs back to the stage, joining on the piano. This spirited melody had the audience participating fully, with lyrics belted out throughout the venue. This extended tune switched fans into high gear during their electrified performance.Instead of having set break, the band continued on for the evening as they transitioned into “Tangled Up in Blue.” “Midnight Moonlight” had the crowd on their feet, with arms in the air, as this song encored the evening. Tie dye shirts and Jerry Jam paraphernalia were in abundance at this pre-Jerry Jam performance. The evening ended on a high note, as festival tickets were given away to a pair of lucky fans.Any chance you get to see Melvin Seals, make a point to go. His magical presence on stage brings a warmth to every performance that sends fans on a trip back in time to the days of Jerry Garcia. Cats Under the Stars have a tight gig in place.

WBB : With Alexander in foul trouble, redshirt freshman Leary steps up, posts career highs in SU win


first_imgQuentin Hillsman said he never would have expected this result. Not with the way the game unfolded.Syracuse leading scorer Kayla Alexander was stuck on the bench with foul trouble. She didn’t make a shot from the field and finished with two points in nine minutes. The Orange’s go-to scorer in the low post had to watch from the sidelines.Enter Shakeya Leary.‘If you told me we would have a game where Kayla would have four fouls and we’d win by 20-something points, I wouldn’t believe it,’ SU’s head coach Hillsman said. ‘But Shakeya Leary stepped in and had a monster game today.’Leary had a career day as SU (13-2, 1-1 Big East) beat Seton Hall 75-50 in front of 1,135 at the Carrier Dome Saturday. The redshirt freshman tallied career highs with 13 points, 19 rebounds and seven blocks in another personal-best 29 minutes of action. Leary went 4-for-6 from the field and helped the Syracuse defense stifle the Pirates’ attack. The Orange held Seton Hall (7-9, 0-3) to just 21.3 percent shooting.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘These kinds of games of (Leary) playing well don’t surprise me,’ Hillsman said. ‘But obviously these numbers are big. I thought that she got minutes, that she got into a flow and she played well.’Both teams struggled mightily on offense to start the game. Through the first four minutes of action, the Orange turned the ball over six times while the Pirates coughed it up on seven possessions.Alexander picked up two quick fouls trying to work through her defenders in the post. Less than a minute after the second call, the sophomore center hacked Seton Hall forward Kandice Green in the post, forcing her to the bench for the rest of the half with 13:02 left on the clock.‘It was great to get her out of there,’ Seton Hall head coach Anne Donovan said. ‘But we can’t put the ball in the hole.’With Alexander out of the game, the Pirates repeatedly attacked the basket from the low post. But Leary wouldn’t budge underneath.If she didn’t send the shot back, the redshirt freshman simply held her ground and altered countless shots by Green and SHU center Tajay Ashmeade. And when those shots missed, Leary was right there to clean up the glass.She had 11 rebounds and six blocks by halftime.‘I just kept being physical,’ the soft-spoken Leary said. ‘Doing what coaches tell us to do.’While the Pirates struggled, sophomores Carmen Tyson-Thomas and Elashier Hall gave the Orange a spark it needed to end the first half on a 26-9 run. Tyson-Thomas came off the bench and knocked down knocked down three 3-pointers to give her 13 of her 15 points before the break. Hall added two 3s of her own in the first half and tallied nine of her team-leading 16 points in the first 20 minutes to help put SU up 39-21 at halftime.Alexander returned to the floor to open the second half but picked up her fourth foul trying to help on a drive to the basket with 18:37 left. The Orange’s leading scorer didn’t log any minutes after that, as SU didn’t need her on the court. Syracuse suffocated the Pirates’ offense and it never led by less than 16 after halftime.‘Just being everywhere,’ Hall said was key to SU’s performance on defense. ‘Playing hard, working hard, getting to the high post, getting to the corners. On every catch, we’re there. Just being aggressive and playing our principles.’And Leary continued her big day into the second half. She was the beneficiary of feeds from her Orange teammates underneath that resulted in easy buckets and was able to get to the free throw line nine times in the second half.And just as Hillsman said he wouldn’t expect a 75-50 win with Alexander on the bench in foul trouble, Seton Hall head coach Donovan said she was surprised by Leary’s performance, too.‘Clearly, Syracuse has some depth,’ Donovan said. ‘… Although I knew (Hillsman) had good players coming into the post, I didn’t expect (Leary) to come in and have that kind of double-double off the bench.’[email protected] Comments Published on January 7, 2011 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Diamond mine with 27 million carats of stone likely to be auctioned by India


first_imgIndia is set to auction or allocate the Bunder diamond mining project based in Madhya Pradesh’s Chattarpur district after global miner Rio Tintodecided to abandon it.A statement from Rio Tinto had said that the company was carrying out an assessment of all ongoing projects across the world so that it can work efficiently in this phase of economic slowdown and give returns to their investors. In the course of this assessment, the company decided to not proceed further with the Bunder  project and would try and wind up all infrastructure by end of 2016.In early August 2016, the company reported a 47 per cent slump in first-half profit to its weakest in 12 years and underlined the importance of cost-cutting.The Bunder deposit, which was discovered by Rio Tinto in 2004, is estimated to contain about 27.4 million carats of diamonds potentially worth billions of dollars.The decision comes as a setback to Madhya Pradesh that had showcased the big ticket investment project as the game changer for the backward Bundelkhand region. Rio Tinto’s decision came at a time when the government was seeking the help of it and its rivals, such as Anglo American, to explore for diamonds and gold to make India a major mineral producer.Mines Secretary Balvinder Kumar said the withdrawal was a surprise as the company was close to getting a forest clearance for the mine from the environment ministry.Kumar said he would talk to parties interested in Bunder when Rio Tinto formally hands the project back to the state government of Madhya Pradesh, where it is located.advertisementThe company had said that it would work with the Union government and Madhya Pradesh government to find a third party investor for the project.Rio Tinto had begun a regional exploration program in 2002. A prospecting lease was granted in September 2006 and as per an order of magnitude study of October 2008, the Bunder mines were expected to yield 37.4 million tonnes of kimberlite containing 27.4 million carats of diamonds.ALSO READ:Rio Tinto announces withdrawal from high profile diamond mining project in MPlast_img read more

Keylor Navas breaks Real Madrid record with fourth straight shutout


first_img four games as the starter for Real Madrid, keeper Keylor Navas has yet to allow a single goal. The Costa Rican helped his club to a 4-0 victory over Ukraine’s Shaktar Donetsk to begin Champions League play Tuesday, adding to an already historic streak. Navas is now the first goalie in the 113-year history of Real Madrid to begin a season with four consecutive shutouts.Navas also remains the only goalkeeper in Spain’s La Liga to have not given up a goal. However, his scoreless streak was in jeopardy on two occasions Tuesday. With just a minute left in stoppage time, Shaktar offered up a would-be goal towards the net, but the acrobatic Navas leaped up to deflect the ball at the last second.’ historic play comes on the heels of the club’s botched transfer attempt for Manchester United goalie David De Gea, as club president Florentino Pérez was ready to ship away the Costa Rican in exchange for the Spaniard De Gea. The 28-year-old goalie has remained professional throughout the process and has now brought one of the most decorated clubs in football history to new heights.Though he seems to remain perpetually unaffected, disaster nearly struck in the first period of the Champions League affair when a pass from a teammate clanged off of Navas’ shoe and almost rolled into the corner of the goal. Call it Costa Rican Independence Day luck, but whatever it was, it kept Navas with a clean sheet in his third Champions League start. and Real Madrid return to La Liga play on Saturday when they take on Granada in a game that will kickoff at 8 a.m. Costa Rican time.
