Phase 5 Plays with Sir Paul McCartney! For Real.

Josh Walther and the Phase 5 Band shared the stage with a living legend on Saturday night, May 9, 2015. They were hand picked by Sir Paul McCartney and his wife to play at a family event, and there was certainly no saying “no” when he asked to join them in an impromptu blues riff “Graduation” and a rendition of The Beatles “I Saw Her Standing There.”

As if that were not thrill enough, the story has gone viral… from here to Brazil, New Zealand, and even Good Morning America! Check out the brief video clip here, and stream the full-length audio of the performance via SoundCloud below!
