[Updated update] Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan jam with Mumford and Sons in a Nashville basement (and a reader was there too)

Last night Mumford and Sons played a secret gig in the basement of a house in Green Hills in Nashville and it's no surprise, but it is a delight, that Mumford & Sons Mascot Jake Gyllenhaal was there cheering them along accompanied by WDW favourite Carey Mulligan. See if you can spot Jake in the photo below...


But first to set the scene... photos on Twitter show just how crammed this secret event was. As a claustrophobic, I'm pretty sure I would have passed out before the first note was sung. But there's nothing quite like sharing a cramped basement with Jake to bring one back to life. In this video, you can also see Jake (next to the guy in the yellow hat) singing along to a rousing rendition of My Darling Clementine.



Many thanks to the Mumford & Sons fan who was there in the basement and emailed me a brief account of what was an amazing experience. 'Saturday night Jake was at a secret basement show mumford and sons played in nashville, he was with that chick from wall street 2. He was sitting on the floor right up front bobbing his head. It was amazing, they played a few of their old songs and then they played 3 new ones that will be on their next album. I tried to get some pictures but Jake had a stand up to cancer hat pretty much covering his face up'. But he could see Carey 'sitting on an amp up front with a video camera'.



Updated to add: you can see another video above, which shows Jake, Carey and Marcus. And there are more details here: '[Jake and Carey] arrived to the party with Mumford & Sons after sharing a table and a meal with the group at City House earlier in the evening and settled comfortably into the gathering without getting targeted by other attendees for their star power. Way to play it cool Nashville. But the story gets better. After the bands’ sets ended around 1 a.m. and guests started making their way home, some 50 folks including the party host, the bands that performed, local pop success Mat Kearney and members of Old Crow Medicine Show settled into one of the upstairs bedrooms for an impromptu jam session that had Gyllenhaal picking up a guitar and showing off his skills as the room and Mulligan joined in for a sing-along of “Amazing Grace” and Old Crow’s “Wagon Wheel.”'

'Even though Gyllenhaal and Mulligan noted that they had to catch an early flight out of town, the session was still going strong as late as 4 a.m. securing its spot as quite possibly, one of the most epic bashes of 2011. “Its really incredible to all of us and a huge blessing to witness our friends become successful but more than that it’s a huge lesson to meet successful people who live out humble lives,” said party host Mike Harris. “I hope that came across last night. You’re never too cool to play in a dingy basement.”'


Jake's love for Mumford and Sons has been a topic here for a fair while, with photos of Jake with singer Marcus Mumford as well as repeated protestations of affection for the band's music, in print(to GQ and NME) and on radio (BBC Radio 6), and their album 'Sigh No More'. He told GQ: 'Horns are, to me, the most affirmative instrument to say there is something beyond where we are. In Mumford & Sons, whenever those horns come on, I feel like it’s all going to be okay. Life’s all good - for the whole world. Maybe that’s sophomoric, but I really feel that in my heart. I’m in awe of musicians when they do that. I search for that. I search for those things that make me go, ‘Okay... all right.’'



Update: many thanks to Blake for leaving this comment last night about the incredible experience at being at this intimate gig in Nashville: 'That was the most amazing night of my life. I was in the first row standing and I don't think that I will ever be a part of such a unique and surreal experience again. The Mumford guys were really cool, talking to everyone before and after the show. At one point, they had everyone sit down for the opening act, and Jake was standing right behind me, and we joked about having to do squats at a show in a tiny basement. It was like everyone who was there were all buddies and nobody really bothered the actors or band members except through casual conversation. I love this city and the chill music fans.'

Despite of not making any movie right now, Jake doesn't live boring life. Not at all.
Three sisters in NY, meeting with his family, and two days later in Nashville on the other side of the States, different time zone, different weather, watching Mumford & Sons concert in crowded, claustrophobic basement. That's life! I'm glad he spend nice time, avoiding paparazzi, not avoiding people.
On that little movie I couldn't spot Jake. It was too dark. But I believe he was there:)

It was nice to see Dastan again.

Hi Mermon! It's a very exciting life! And what an amazing intimate event! That's Jake in the black cap. In the second video I just posted you can see him again next to Carey.

mermon said...

Yes, now I can see him. Carrie sings with the band and he seems to listen only. Maybe he was tired after flight.
Though I would like to see him better, I'm glad that he was not bothered and could enjoy the concert almost in privacy.

Wet Dark and Wild said...

He's singing away in the first video, Mermon, so he looks like he's having a great time. In the second video we don't get as good a look at his face. I added another article to the post which explains a bit more about the event and what a late night it was!

BBMISwear said...

Wow - what fun this Mumford and Sons very exclusive 'show' looks like. Wish I was there (although how anyone was there without an ice cold beer is beyond me - it looks hot in there)! Good to see Jake and Carey hanging out, too. It would be great to see more pics and vids - we know the camera phones were rolling so let's hope those lucky attendees post more soon!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday all - my and Jake's team didn't make it in this year so here's to next year!

:-)

mermon said...

Wow! That's great update! What an
intensive, vibrant night! Jake with guitar? I would sing to that. Even if out of tune:)
And very nice and wise words were said that night.

so COOL that Jake got to hang out in a basement with his fave band and rockin' it with a guitar with them! WOW I wish I'd been there. Such a relaxed setting and just able to be himself without paps or tabloids there

I could spot him in the second vid not the first

thanks WDW

I followed the tweets last night. Seems like it was a fun party! In a basement! wow
thanks!

Carey Mulligan is one of my favorites today. I'm anxious to see her next work.

Looked to me as if Carey was holdng up her cameraphone so someone else could enjoy it along with them? How sweet! I am very fond of her.

mermon said...

I recognized Jake on the first video - it's the one with the guitar, on the left side of a guy in a yellow cap, and he's in a dark cap himself. So it means that first video is from upstairs.

Alejandra said...

Jake? With a guitar? And singing? This is getting Rocky-of-Agesy alright! (I know, I know: nothing's for sure but the dream is still alive) :-D

I'll check the vids as soon as I manage to convince my connection. It's having a non-collaborative day.

Have a great start of the week, everyone! xo

Just Fan said...

I'd love to hear Jake play guitar and sing. Sounds like he and Carey were having fun during the M&S gig.:)

Margot said...

I saw Jake in the 2nd video but not the first video. I wish I could seen him play guitar!
I also wish Carey didn't have a boyfriend - her & Jake would be wonderful together, I think.... anyways....

I am so glad that he seemed to have enjoyed the last few days with his family and with M&S. It's nice to see his have a nice low-key night out.

you're so lucky, Blake to have been there. I bet it is one night you'll never forget!

Margot said...

That's great to hear, Blake.

I wonder when Jake started playing guitar - has he talked about it before?

mayumintolor said...

Morning everyone! Back at work - in a gale :(

Good to see you all! And thanks so much Blake for that wonderful firsthand account! What an incredible experience, and so intimate - just amazing. I'll add that to the post - thanks so much for sharing it with us.

As for the guitar thing - it's also mentioned during the Bubble Boy commentary. I now have the image of the Jake Ukelele pic in my head!

So good to see you all!

mermon said...

Thank you Blake for first hand news!You had certainly great night. I can only imagine that. How hot it was there and magic atmosphere.Thank you for sharing with us.

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Thanks so much TD! I've been dead chuffed :D

Hi mermon!

Hope everyone has had a good day and I'm delighted to say I have power again at home :D

Margot said...

I really like Carey in the second video with her phone - she looks cute and like she's having a nice time.

I saw Jake better in both of the videos now. He looks to be enjoying the atmosphere. I am glad he seemed to have a nice time. He sees so normal and laid back :)

I bet he is looking forward to promoting SC but probably really enjoys being out of the spotlight for a while.

mermon said...

I can finally see Jake too, this time for sure I recognize the right person on both clips. We are so funny looking for our favourite person in such a "difficult to see anything" video. We must really like him a lot :)

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Morning everyone!

Hi Margot :D It's lovely to see Jake having such a good time and Carey too. It's the sort of occasion that treats everyone the same and I'm sure Jake and the band enjoyed that.

Morning Mermon - glad you spotted him :)

Have a good day everyone!
