Last night, a Judd Apatow-organized benefit concert took place in Los Angeles at Largo, a venue known for live music and comedy. The event brought forth an unexpected on-stage collaboration featuring Beck, Dave Grohl, Tenacious D, John C. Reilly and celebrated producer Greg Kurstin, who all sat in for a cover of Seal & Croft’s “Summer Breeze.”
The collaboration occurred during a Beck-billed performance at filmmaker Judd Apatow’s benefit for Victims First, an organization whose mission is to “support, empower, and protect victims of mass casualty crime through rapid response, financial assistance, community preparedness education, as well as care support and advocacy for policies that help all victims/survivors.”
The City of Angels performance saw Beck and Tenacious D’s Kyle Grass on guitar, while Grass’ bandmate, Black, took on the lead vocals, which was served with the perfect amount of humor. Moreover, the take on the beloved 1972 cover also featured Reilly harmonizing the lyrics and Kurtin on piano.
During the performance, which can be streamed below via the venue’s official Instagram page, Grohl descends from the back of the stage, zipping to the mic to provide harmonic assistance on the song while adding in some extra fun with mouth guitar riffs. As Variety pointed out in the original reporting of the story, Tuesday night’s performance marked one of the first in-person appearances for Grohl after the sudden and tragic passing of Taylor Hawkins on March 25.
