Watch Tom Hamilton Perform With Marco Benevento & The Snarky Puppy Horns At Luna Light Festival

first_imgLast weekend marked the return of the annual Luna Light Music & Arts Festival, bringing together an elite lineup of talents for a true festival for live music fans. One of the themes of the event were top notch collaborations and jam sessions, including one with Medeski, Martin, Russo & Benevento that you can watch here. Another occurred during a performance from Tom Hamilton’s American Babies, which saw the band welcome three different keyboardists at various points and the full horn section of Snarky Puppy.Hamilton first welcomed out Holly Bowling, who sat in on an opening run that included “Synth Driver,” “This Thing Ain’t Goin Nowheres” and the Grateful Dead’s “Cumberland Blues.” The Disco Biscuits’ own Aron Magner followed suit, joining in for the “Cumberland Blues” and staying on for “An Epic Battle Between Light And Dark.” Magner would remain on stage, while the band brought back Holly Bowling and also introduced Hamilton’s JRAD bandmate Marco Benevento for a rousing rendition of “At The Show.”At that point, Bowling left the stage, but the band wasn’t done with their guest stars! The Snarky Puppy horns were then introduced, and they accompanied American Babies (with Benevento and Magner) on a rendition of “Old Time Religion.” Finally, the set closed with the Puppy horns and Marco Benevento joining Tom Hamilton’s American Babies for one remarkable rendition of “Fever Dreams.”You can watch this all-star set-closing jam session below, thanks to American Babies!Do not miss Tom Hamilton’s American Babies on tour, especially for their exciting Masquerade Balls stopping in major cities across the country.

NPFL: MFM Pip Rangers to Sustain Good Run in the East

first_imgLobi shock Pillars in KanoPlateau United kept their place at the top with a hard fought 2-1 win against visiting Wikki Tourists of Bauchi at the new Jos stadium before a huge home crowd.However, the talking point of the day may well be MFM FC of Lagos second road win against Oriental sides after beating Rangers 1-0 just as they did Heartland on opening day.None of the two wins on the day can diminish Lobi Stars feat in Kano where they had the better of former champions, Kano Pillars. Wikki began the day level on points with Plateau and were looking on going tops with a possible win away from home as they did on Matchday 2. The Bauchi side took the lead on the 12th minute through Jackson Daniels. However, Coach Andy Maikaba’s men drew level 12 minutes before the break through Mustapha Ibrahim, before Abbar Umar scrambled home Itodo’s throw-in, 10 minutes after the restart for the winner.Tony Bolus guided MFM to their second win away from home in some stylish fashion, when they stunned Rangers in Enugu, with Chuks Kenedinum’s goal just before the break. Similar result was recorded in Kano, as Pillars, without their inspirational captain, Rabiu Ali, lost by a lone goal to visiting Lobi Stars. Douglas Achiv was the scorer for Coach Gbenga Ogunbote’s side. At the Enyimba Stadium in Aba, eight time champions, Enyimba stunned Akwa United 3-1, to go second on the log. Austin Oladapo had given Abdallah’s men the advantage on 13 minutes through a penalty, before Stanley Dimgba and Samson Obi grabbed the second and third on 30 and 33 minutes respectively. Mfon Udoh’s clever chip could only help reduce the deficit for the Promise Keepers six minutes before the break.Tasiu Lawal’s penalty on 64 minutes helped Katsina United to a lone goal victory at home to visiting Nasarawa United. Danladi Umar had earlier denied the striker from a similar scenario on the 40th minute.Elsewhere, Phillip Auta’s effort on 32nd minute salvaged a point for Abia Warriors at home to Kabiru Dogo’s Sunshine Stars. The Akure side earlier took control of the game with Fuad Ekelejuoti’s goal on 19 minutes.Less than 42km away from Umuahia, Heartland FC had to rely on Nnonshiri Samuel’s 63rd minute penalty, to salvage a point at home to visiting Akwa Starlets FC. The Uyo side drew first blood through Femi Ajayis goal six minutes before the break.Chigozie Chilekwu’s header was the difference between FC IfeanyiUbah and Rivers United in Nnwei, while Efe Yarhere and Sunday Williams aided Warri Wolves to a 2-0 win at home to newcomers Adamawa United.Mubaraka Abdulsallam, Isaac Oduro, Otukhe Egbo and Williams Nmesitionye were the scorers as Delta Force humbled Jigawa Golden Stars 4-1. The visitors consolation came through Ali Musa on 62 minutes.NPFL MATCH DAY 3(RESULTS)Wolves 2-0 AdamawaPlateau Utd 2-1 WikkiKatsina Utd 1-0 NasarawaKano Pillars 0-1 LobiIfeanyiubah 1-0 RiversRangers 0-1 MFMEnyimba 3-1 Akwa UtdHeartland 1-1 Akwa StarletsAbia Warriors 1-1 SunshineDelta Force 4-1 Jigawa GSShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
