It was a good few days for Toronto Raptors head coach, who bookended his week with an NBA championship parade on Monday and then a turn as a rockstar with Arkells during their Budweiser Stage show on Saturday night. Nurse, who is well known for carrying his guitar on road trips, hit the stage to strum along with a cover of Stevie Wonder’s hit “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.”
Arkells frontman Max Kerman told the crowd he was bringing out a special guest, one who can be seen with a guitar on his back wherever he goes. The crowd welcomed the Raptors coach with a chorus of cheers.
Watch the footage below.
