Timmy Trumpet, the Australian musician who plays the trumpet solo from the song Narco, was live at Citi Field to welcome Mets closer Edwin Diaz.
The musician was always scheduled to be on hand for the Dodgers series, especially as the song grows in popularity and Diaz continues to impress on the mound.
With the Mets closing in on a playoff appearance and perhaps an NL East crown, Timmy Trumpet amped up the Citi Field crowd with a live rendition.
Who is Timmy Trumpet?
The group which performs the song, Blasterjaxx, had been trying to arrange a visit for quite some time, as they were contacted by New York months ago.
“It’s really out of this world basically, especially since it’s a track that’s been out for five years already,” Jongkind (the second half of Blasterjaxx) said. “Usually when you release a track…it needs like a half-year or year maximum. Now, after five years, it’s rising up again.”
In the end, the schtick worked, as Diaz shut down the Dodgers en route to a 2-1 New York victory over arguably the best team in all of baseball.

Even we have to admit it’s catchy. While it doesn’t quite have the intimidation factor of Enter Sandman, it’s a close second in terms of New York baseball warmup songs.
As it turns out, not a bad category to be in second place in.
With a healthy Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer, New York has the pitching to make a run.
