After playing today at Merryland Music Fest at Columbia, Maryland’s famous Merriweather Post Pavillion, the quintet will continue their current summer tour this Thursday, July 14th, at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, Oregon. Jamgrass superstars Greensky Bluegrass played a characteristically strong show at Charleston, South Carolina’s Music Farm this past Friday, July 8th. The show featured 21 songs over two sets and an encore, but one of the biggest highlights of the night was the pair of covers to end the second set, played with their usual twangy flair–The Band‘s “The Shape I’m In” (from 1970’s Stage Fright) into Bruce Springsteen‘s “Atlantic City” (from the Boss’s 1982 acoustic album Nebraska).Thanks to archive.org user @chrisdavis, you can stream the full show below:Ellison White Photography was on the scene, and you can see his images below. As Ellison tells us, the AC in the venue went out during the show, creating quite the sweltering situation. At least the heat of the music matched that of the room!

Betfred counters Oppenheimer bid in race to rescue Phumelela August 26, 2020 GVC Holdings has become the latest gambling company to issue a claim to Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) regarding compensation owed from tax charges related to fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs).After William Hill followed the lead of Betfred and Rank Group earlier in the week, GVC has predicted that a successful claim ‘will result in a cash inflow to the Group of approximately £200m’.GVC’s HMRC rebate stands from an April High Court ruling that favoured a joint appeal issued by Betfred and Rank which contested HMRC VAT charges on machine duties, with operators claiming that they could exempt charges in accordance to EU taxation policies and its precedent on fiscal neutrality.The High Court sided with the betting operators on the grounds that HMRC had made no distinction with regards to the ‘supply of games’ until it updated its VAT policy in January 2013.In a statement, GVC said: “GVC Holdings PLC has learned that the UK tax authority, Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs, has taken the decision not to appeal the ruling of the Upper Tribunal (Tax and Chancery Chamber) in the cases of the Done Brothers (Cash Betting) Ltd (trading as Betfred) and Rank Group Plc concerning the application of VAT to certain gaming machines and fixed odds betting terminals within licenced betting shops.“The Rank dispute concerned the VAT liability of gambling made using certain gaming machines prior to 5 December 2005 while the Done Brothers dispute related to the tax treatment of supplies of gambling by means of fixed odds betting terminals (“FOBTs”) during the period prior to 31 January 2013.“The Group understands it will be eligible for a rebate of historic VAT incorrectly paid on gaming machine revenues from its own Ladbrokes betting shops in the period 1 October 2002 to 31 January 2013.”Yesterday, William Hill confirmed it would seek compensation from the government, stating it was examining scenarios related to its rebate fee.It added: “Whilst William Hill currently expects the net cash recovery to be material, its precise quantum remains uncertain. Nevertheless, the board has considered a number of scenarios which suggest a potential net cash recovery of between £125m and £150m.” Share Related Articles StumbleUpon GVC hires ‘comms pro’ Tessa Curtis to re-energise media profile August 25, 2020 Share Submit SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020
