Taking Back Sunday guitarist Eddie Reyes was treated to a birthday surprise during a gig on Tuesday (20Nov12) when his bandmates hired a stripper to share the stage.

The MakeDamnSure hitmakers performed a show in Providence, Rhode Island and they marked Reyes' big day by hiring a male dancer as a celebratory joke.

Reyes was sat in a chair on the stage at the Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel venue as the stripper shed his clothes, much to the delight of his fans.

In footage posted on Tmz.com, Reyes looks uncomfortable at first, but eventually sees the funny side and starts cheering the stripper on.

Reyes later took to Twitter.com to post snaps of the incident with the caption, "Yep this really happened..."
