When Matt Nathanson and his band took the stage that night, they had no idea that a spontaneous moment would turn into an unforgettable experience for both the performers and the audience. Looking to keep the energy high, Nathanson decided to play a quick riff in between sets. Little did he know that this impromptu performance would ignite a surge of enthusiasm among the crowd. When his fingers strummed the familiar chords of AC/DC’s iconic hit ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’, the audience just took over the song and made it their own.
Amazingly, most of the audience knew the lyrics! They practically sang the entire song while Matt and the band played along. It was a magical convergence of musicians and fans, transforming the venue into an electric atmosphere of collective joy and unity.
While the spontaneous sing-along took center stage, it was the lead guitarist, Aaron Tap, who truly seized the moment. Tap unleashed an improvised solo and it was perfect! His fingers danced across the strings, weaving a spellbinding melody that elevated the performance to new heights. It was a showcase of musicianship and improvisation that made the whole gig even more special.
