Beck was a surprise guest at the 5th Annual Light Up The Blues Concertâ€”An Evening of Music to Benefit Autism Speaks.
Neil Young headlined, and Stephen Stills was the organizer of this benefit gig. The billed acts were Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Burt Bacharach, Judy Collins, Sheryl Crow, Chris Stills, Oliver Stills, Benmont Tench, Mike Campbell, as well as unannounced special guests. Jack Black was the emcee. The special guests were Beck and Patti Smith.
The house band that backed Beck included Tench and Campbell, all of whom were in The Heartbreakers (and it was their first performance together since Tom Petty passed away).
Steve Ferrone was reported in the band in the press, but turns out he didn't do all the songs that night. The drummer for the rest, including Beck's part, was Matt Laug. The bassist was Kevin McCormick, who is Stephen Stills bassist (among others). Stephen Stills' son Chris also performed that night and sang backup for Beck too. Beck also introduced the two women singing backup as Cece and Susan, but I'm not sure their last names (was one Cece Winans?)
Anyway, Beck performed "Guess I'm Doing Fine" (first time in 5 years) and then did a "Where It's At" jam that included "One Foot" (and one line of "Up All Night").
