Multiple videos were posted to YouTube and Facebook today of Paul McCartney singing an apparently impromptu version of The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There” with a band at Hudson House in Jersey City.

You can watch one of them below.

McCartney’s wife, Nancy Shevell (also seen in the video), is a New Jersey native.

The event was a gathering for Shevell’s family’s Elizabeth-based company NEMF (New England Motor Freight) that McCartney and Shevell co-hosted.

One attendee who posted on Facebook characterized the event as a farewell party. According to a press release that came out in February: “New England Motor Freight, Inc. (the ‘Company’ or ‘NEMF’) today announced that the Company and ten related entities have voluntarily filed for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey in Newark on February 11, 2019. NEMF intends to use these proceedings to facilitate an orderly wind-down of its operations.”

Here is a description of the venue, from Hudson House’s website: “Situated on the waters edge in Port Liberte, NJ, this newly built venue is an arms length away from the Hudson River and boasts outstanding skyline and river views.”

Here is the video. (Nov. 25 Update: A new video surfaced on YouTube today that is better than the videos that were available yesterday, so I have subbed that in. The video actually contains two different films of the performance; the second one is the better one and it starts at 3:09. There’s also some bonus footage at the end, by the way, of McCartney and Shevell dancing to Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love.”)
