Did you know that Paul McCartney has a pretty surprising connection to New Jersey? McCartney’s wife, Nancy Shevell, is an executive for the Elizabeth-based New England Motor Freight company. In fact, Shevell herself is an Edison native and graduated from J.P. Stevens High School. She also served as a board member for New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority. McCartney and Shevell married in 2011, and they’ve been traveling the world together ever since.

This Jersey connection is what led to Shevell selecting a Port Liberte venue for the NEMF holiday party. Hudson House is known as one of the finest event spaces in Port Liberte—its Manhattan views make it a picture perfect spot for your next get-together. Sparkling bay panoramas helped spark the magical evening, and Paul’s appearance made it even better!

Paul and Nancy arrived at 7 PM and partied late into the night with New England Motor Freight employees, as well as few lucky Port Liberte locals. In fact, the former Beatle even took the stage to serenade Shevell with a fan-favorite song.

After taking his jacket off and addressing the crowd, Paul dedicated a rendition of “I Saw Her Standing There” to his wife. Written in 1963 by McCartney and John Lennon, this classic Beatles song captivated just about everyone in the room. For those lucky enough to be there, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience! After the performance, Nancy and Paul danced lovingly to a rendition of “Crazy in Love”—it was an idyllic way to end the night!
