While having nothing to do with upcoming gigs or undiscovered bands, it’s still a great story:

Paul McCarney perfoming on Long Island at a wedding

Paul McCartney this past weekend provided wedding guests an evening they won’t ever forget.

The legend and former Beatles member, surprised his nephew and his bride with a performance of the classic love song, “I Saw Her Standing There” at their nuptials at a Long Island country club on Saturday. The link to his performance is below.

McCartney, when playing at other performer’s concerts, often plays “I Saw Her Standing There”. Paul, like many of us musicians, also has his “go-to” songs and this is one of them.

The unrehearsed and impromptu performance was in front of 300 people at the Fresh Meadow Country Club, located in Lake Success, Long Island.

McCartney as you would expect, nailed the rendition of his classic song with the help of the 20-piece wedding band. Besides the guests, I’m sure the 20 musicians must have had a blast playing alongside this musical icon.

Incidentally, the groom is from McCartney’s wife Nancy’s side of the family.

Here’s a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zt5NnNV9NZ0
