Donning a black head wrap and plain t-shirt the Shrek star looked comfortable with the instrument in his hands.

Retro brown pants gave the look some 70s flair, while a rectangular gold watch added some flash.

Murphy also donned a pair of classic black and white Adidas Sambas, which could be a nod to the actor’s previous role as Axel Foley, who wore them in Beverly Hills Cop.

Robinson sported a black vest with matching pants as he headed away from the restroom.

A mint green button down gave the outfit some added flair and his well-manicured beard was shaped into electrifying muttonchops mixed that ran into a full goatee.

Black Oxfords gave an extra touch of flash to the 70s-inspired ensemble.
