Kevin Morby made a surprise appearance during the Alone & Together show at Brooklyn, NY’s Music Hall of Williamsburg last night. The former Woods member took the stage partway through the show for a song from his 2016 release Singing Saw “Destroyer” and “Beautiful Stranger,” his tribute to the victims of that same year’s Orlando club shooting.
Throughout the songs, Morby was backed by the current Alone & Together cast: Sam Cohen, Joe Russo, Eric Johnson, Josh Kaufman and Elvis Perkins. (Fittingly, Cohen produced Singing Saw.) Kaufman’s wife Annie Nero, who also was a member of Yellowbirds with her husband and Cohen, also sat in on “Destroyer.”
Morby has taken part in several Alone & Together shows in the past and shared the stage with all the evening’s players in different configurations over the years.
Cohen, Russo, Johnson, Kaufman and Perkins will close their current Alone & Together run in Boston this evening.
