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.
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.

(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.” […]
