The Jonas Brothers took a break from their Happiness Begins arena tour to stop by the NPR offices for their first-ever Tiny Desk concert, which dropped Monday (Sept. 30).
The guys kicked their performance off with “Sucker,” transforming the No. 1 hit into a swinging jazz number complete with Joe Jonas brandishing a tiny, multi-colored tambourine and trading falsetto-tinged vocals with brother Nick Jonas.
After slowing things down with romantic album cut “I Believe,” the band incorporated the many toys and knickknacks scattered around the desk into their ‘80s-inspired single “Only Human.” (While Nick pounded out the song’s melodic hook on a miniature toy piano and Joe played around with a quacking buzzer, Kevin Jonas stuck to his trusty guitar.)
The three-song set ended with one last surprise: an impromptu “Happy Birthday” sing-along for Joe, who rang in the Tiny Desk Concert on his 30th birthday.
