Dumpstaphunk was firing on all of their funkiest cylinders at their Suwannee Rising Music Festival set on Saturday. Ivan Neville and his stellar band are no strangers to making the crowd at the Spirit Of The Suwannee move and groove, with over twenty fan-favorite appearances in the park to date. The practice has clearly made them the perfect band to bring the noise on a sunny afternoon. They were certainly happy to be back and even happier to be playing their own music and not the cover sets for which they were usually recruited to play at the now-defunct Wannee Festival.In years past, Dumpstaphunk’s April appearances at the Suwannee have been dominated by cover sets paying tribute to bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sly & The Family Stone. Those were cool…but it was clearly more enjoyable for them to put a little Dumpsta in their phunk.With a strong element of down-and-dirty jams from artists like Oteil Burbridge, The New Mastersounds and Ghost-Note preceding them at the festival, Dumpstaphunk got to play to a crowd that was warmed up and ready to dance. The band took full advantage of the opportunity, even recruiting Ghost-Note bassist MonoNeon to join them alongside their other guests, the Naughty Professor horns, in putting on a wild and wooly set that perfectly encapsulated the vibe this new fest is seeking to establish.With weapons like Ian Neville and Tony Hall on guitar, Devin Trusclair on the drum kit and Nick Daniels on bass, Ivan Neville didn’t need any outside help to funk things up—but hey, it’s not a party unless your friends come over and play! You can check out some of the set’s highlights, including an epic “Up For The Down Stroke”, below thanks to Rex-A-Vision!

London, Sep 9: Spain and Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has revealed that his family received “death threats” in the aftermath of the Champions League final against Liverpool where he fouled Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.Ramos, 32, was jeered throughout Spain’s 2-1 victory over England at Wembley in a UEFA Nations League game.In the Champions League final, which Real won 3-1 in May to claim their third successive crown, Salah was forced off with a shoulder injury midway through the first half following a challenge by Ramos.”One tries to evade (the boos). In the end you feel it, but I stay out of everything. It doesn’t affect my game,” Ramos was quoted as saying by ESPNFC on Saturday.”I would have liked another reception because people only remember the action of the final, and nobody remembers the death threats that my family and my children received.”It is a very sensitive issue that people maybe take as a joke about and (that’s why they) whistle in a great stadium like this. My conscience is very clear. I already explained (what happened), and I do not have to give more explanations.”Ramos has time and again denied trying to intentionally hurt Salah.”You never expect a reception that is not good because, as I said the other day if these [English] fans have something good, it is that they have always been with the great players. It has not been like that, but I am very calm, with my conscience very clear in that aspect.”As I said before, I have never tried to hurt a colleague. There are people who may have misunderstood it, but these are football things. It will not change anything in my game or in me.”Meanwhile, he was effusive in his praise for Spain and Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea who made a string of saves to keep England and especially Marcus Rashford at bay.”He is a great goalkeeper. We have always said it,” Ramos said. “The big games are those that mark the great players. After a World Cup with many doubts, he deserved (a performance such as this).”He is a great goalkeeper, and today he has (had) a great game, he has made some interventions that have marked the result of the game. Hopefully, it is also a beginning, and that will help him to gain confidence because he is a key player for us,” Ramos added. IANS
