Umphrey’s McGee Debuts Emerson, Lake & Palmer Song In Honor Of Keith Emerson

first_imgYesterday, music fans everywhere were shocked by the news of Keith Emerson’s unfortunate passing. The keyboardist was a renowned musician, powering the melodies and progressive exploration of the rock trio Emerson Lake & Palmer. Certainly, a band like Umphrey’s McGee, known for a more progressive-leaning rock sound, would have been influenced by ELP’s tremendous works.With that in mind, Umphrey’s debuted a cover of “From The Beginning” in the encore, a song featured on ELP’s 1972 album, Trilogy. The classic tune was dedicated to the memory of Keith Emerson, and executed to perfection. The show featured many highlights, including a cover of Rolling Stones’ “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” with beloved saxophonist Skerik. While we wait for media to emerge from the show, listen to the original version of “From The Beginning” below:You can also enjoy the second set-opening “All In Time” from the show, courtesy of Mark Masterson:  Check out the full setlist below, thanks to All Things Umphrey’s:Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee at The Moore Theatre, Seattle, WA – 3/11/16Set 1: October Rain > Conduit, Miss Tinkle’s Overture, Anchor Drops > Resolution > 2×2 > Little Gift > Alex’s HouseSet 2: All In Time > Attachments, Wappy Sprayberry > All In Time, The Crooked One > Mail Package, Can’t You Hear Me Knocking[1]Encore: From the Beginning[2] > In The Kitchen[1] with Skerik on saxophone[2] debut, Emerson, Lake & PalmerNotes: From the Beginning played in remembrance of Keith Emersonlast_img read more

Christian Council reiterates its position that Sunday remains day of rest and worship

first_img Share Sharing is caring! 172 Views   3 comments Share Tweetcenter_img LocalNews Christian Council reiterates its position that Sunday remains day of rest and worship by: – December 15, 2011 Share Bishop Gabriel MalzaireMembers of the Dominica Christian Council have reiterated their stance that Sundays remain a public holiday as they do not believe or accept that this move will be in the national interest.The Dominica Association of Industry and Commerce through its Chief Executive Officer Mr Achille Chris Joseph has been advocating for Sunday to be declared a normal working day by the government.On December 7th, 2011 Mr Joseph released a statement indicating that “Dominica is opened for business on January 3rd, 2012 which is traditionally celebrated as Merchant’s Holiday. Archille Chris Joseph. (file photo)“The Dominica Association of Industry & Commerce is once again putting its full support and advocacy behind open trading on the traditional “Merchants’ Holiday” this January 3rd, 2012. The DAIC has repeatedly advanced that “Merchants’ Holiday” is not a dies non in the Commonwealth of Dominica and, as such, any decision to close has to be at the determination of the employer,” Joseph said.At a press conference on Wednesday, Bishop of Roseau His Lordship Gabriel Malzaire explained that the Ministry of Social Services wrote to the Council in 2007 requesting their view on the rescheduling of Sundays and public holidays as normal working days.His Lordship noted that in light of the fact that the issue had resurfaced in the media, they saw it fitting to reiterate the Council’s position on the subject as their 2007 response to the Ministry’s request remains the same.“We recognize that there are certain establishments in the commercial sector particularly hospitality where working on Sunday is necessary. We do not however believe or accept that turning Sunday into an ordinary work day for all classes of workers is in the national interest. If Dominica is to build on its gains and establish itself as a cohesive and prosperous nation, it is imperative that the family unit and a recognized day for rest and worship be protected.”Bishop Malzaire further highlighted various factors which he says are already causing a strain on the family unit and the Council believes that this move to declare Sunday a normal working day will be an added pressure.(L-R) Pastor Randy Rodney, Bishop Malzaire and Pastor Marcus Francis at Wednesday’s press conference.“At present, there are a tremendous number of pressures on the family including work, absent fathers and the ultimate exposure of the undesirable television programs the result is particularly damaging to our youth and includes drug abuse, criminal activity and immorality. The present reality is that Sunday is observed as an official day of worship for the majority of Dominicans and is also the only day left when families can spend quality time together.”The Council further believes that this move could undermine the spiritual and family norms and cause damage to single parent families which are prevalent in our society.“To make it possible for any employer to compel an employee to work on Sunday would erode and undermine these important spiritual and family norms. This would be especially damaging to our single parent families which as you know are quite widespread in Dominica. The spiritual norms are vital for under-pinning the development of responsible behavior.”The Council is of the view that the proposed benefits to declaring Sunday a normal working day will outweigh the detrimental effects to the family unit.“We are of the view that the adverse spiritual, social and consequential effect of such a decision will substantially outweigh the perceived economic benefit. Finally and for the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state that we accept the need for persons in the hospitality sector to work on Sundays however; their work schedules should be organized so that working continuously on Sundays be minimized,” Bishop Malzaire concluded.Pastor Marcus Francis and Pastor Randy Rodney, who were also present at Wednesday’s press conference, supported the Council’s position that Sundays remain a day of rest and worship.
