The Jonas Brothers are used to playing their tunes to big crowds, especially since they’ve been supporting their mega-successful comeback album Happiness Begins. They recently played to a decidedly more intimate audience, though, when they stopped by the NPR offices for a Tiny Desk set.
The trio kicked things off with “Sucker,” but not how we’re used to hearing it. Accompanied by four other musicians, they launched into a rendition of their huge single that had a decidedly more jazzy bend to it. The track took on a loungey and subtly funky vibe, and it was an experiment that was ultimately a big success. All the while, Joe also sort of revisited the group’s Tonight Show“classroom instruments” performance of the song by playing a toy tambourine.
