The Tampa Bay wedding band Josh Walther & The Phase5 Band, got the chance to perform with legendary Beatle Sir Paul McCartney May 9 at the Interlachen Country Club in Winter Park. The concert was a private party for the graduation of McCartney's stepson Arlen Shevell from Rollins College. 

The video footage below shows McCartney and Phase5 playing the hit, "I Saw Her Standing There."

But the highlight of the evening was when McCartney improvised a 12 bar blues riff titled "Graduation Song," which you can hear in its entirety here.
