Paolo Nutini got the Olympics off to a rocking reggae start Tuesday night, playing a special show for Puma at CJW, a jazz and wine bar in central Beijing. Nutini moseyed on stage in Levi jeans, a Puma T-shirt and a brown jacket with a row of Chinese buttons down the front – outfit equal parts Sergeant Pepper and Qing Dynasty.

The Chinese crowd bopped along to the Scottish singer’s folksy tunes including “New Shoes”, which Puma is currently using in its TV ads. Everyone cheered when members of the Jamaican Olympic team – the evening’s guests of honor – joined Nutini on stage for a rousing rendition of Bob Marley’s “One Love.”

“I’ve been here a few days,” Nutini quipped pre-show. “So far I’ve found it’s a busy place!”
