Brad Pitt can keep a beat!

The "World War Z" actor, 50, hit the stage with Bruno Mars on Saturday at the Make It Right Gala in New Orleans and proved that he knows a thing or two about rhythm as he played the tambourine.

Pitt, clad in a black tux and wearing his hair slicked back, blended right in with the 28-year-old crooner's band as he jammed along during their performance.

We're sure guests at the swanky event, which sold tickets and tables for up to $25,000, had no idea they'd get a special routine from the charity's founder.

The star-studded guest list included Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, and Sofia Vergara. Chris Rock hosted the A-list evening with appearances from comedian Jim Gaffigan, Bruno Mars and Kings of Leon. Guests enjoyed a dinner prepared by Susan Spicer, Donald Link, Chris Wilson, and Rhonda Ruckman.

Pitt was the man of the hour at the gala, which benefits his Make It Right foundation and raises money for their work building homes, buildings and communities for people in need. He founded the organization in 2007 following Hurricane Katrina. Prior to his big musical performance, he took to the stage to address his guests and said, "I love New Orleans... And I'm extremely proud of the lower 9th Ward community."

His love for The Big Easy isn't a secret, either. Before the gala, the Academy Award winner kicked back at his home in the French Quarter and was spotted tossing beers and footballs back and forth between balconies with fellow actor Matthew McConaughey, who was in town for another charity event.
