#EssenceFest: McDonald’s #BounceBrunch with Tank, Tyrese, Andra Day, Tigger and more

 

During the Essence Festival weekend in New Orleans, McDonald’s held an exclusive invite-only Bounce Brunch just outside of the Convention Center where the other daily festivities were being held.

The event was hosted by Tank and Tyrese with special appearances by Tigger, singer Andra Day, BJ The Chicago Kid, Guordan and PJ Morton. Our very Gabriel Williams was also on deck!

 

Guests enjoyed McD’s special All-Day Breakfast Menu, french fries, their classic beverages, and even Mimosas, along with other speciality cocktails. Special performances were held by local NOLA bands, Tank and The Bangas, and New Breed Brass Band as well. Tyrese was even onboard to serve up a few items, as he revisited his childhood days working for the veteran company, and took a few flicks with some of the employees.

Music was provided by the one and only DJ D-Nice.

It was indeed a great moment for the Essence Fest weekend!

With plenty of Premium Ciroc Vodka flowing for the beachy and elegant La Marina, Va$htie, DJ D-Nice, Quiana Parks, DJ Juss, DJ First Choice and DJ Desim spun a mix of EDM, Trap, and Hip-Hop for most of the afternoon to keep the dance floor packed. With over 900 beautiful guest in attendance #BrunchnBeats has once again lived up to the hype for 2 straight summers as they completely shut down the ultimate hotspot, that is La Marina.

The highlight of the night had to be with the special performance by R&B girl group the Rawyals and fresh from the Budweiser‘s Made in America Festival Miami native hip-hop artist Bizzy Crook.
