The Hennessy BRT team presented an excellent showing at the popular all-inclusive spring break series, Hennessy BRT Weekend, held in Ocho Rios recently.

The annual three-day beach series began on Friday, March 10 and ended on Sunday, March 12, 2023.

Founder of BRT Weekend, Hans-Peter Mullings says that he is pleased with this year’s staging of the event.

“The turnouts have been amazing. All parties so far have been received with overwhelming support and great responses – we are so pleased with the reception here,” he said.

The series kicked off with a ‘VIP-only’ riverside brunch at Dunn’s River Falls with the option to participate in a private excursion. Followed by Maui Wowi, a Hawaiian luau-themed event, Beach Bounce, a water themed party, BRT Glow, BRT J’ouvert Breakfast Party and BRT All- White.

The weekend was definitely one for the books and patrons – both local and international had an enjoyable experience that will be forever committed to memory.

Meric Bailey gave high ratings for the event to which he says he will return.

“I give the event a twenty out of ten. The event was so smooth, the drinks flowed freely, everything was so nice and the ladies are out here looking so nice. I will definitely be back again,” he said.

The magnetic performances were across two Caribbean genres, Dancehall and Soca and included dancehall artiste such as, Skinny Fabulous, Preedy, Kraff, Skeng, Valiant, Ding Dong and The Ravers, Bounty Killer and more.

The effervescent vibe which ebbed and flowed through the events was also brought on by some of the hottest international and local DJs such as Chromatic sound, Cyclone, Noah Powa, Crazy Neil, and Coppershot, Lava Sound.

Hennessy Jamaica, the Caribbean’s leading cognac brand was the official title sponsor at the event and delivered on their promise of an “elevated experience”.

The team executed event set-up, photo op areas, drink mixes, an explosive fire show, and glowing acrobats, which were deeply enjoyed by guests. Florida businessman, Wesley Walters says he hopes to see a similar set-up next year.

“I think the whole set-up with Hennessy was very well planned and put together and I just liked the whole aspect of it because Hennessy is my drink- the whole thing was the best. So next year I hope to see Hennessy with another spectacular set-up that I can enjoy,” he explained.

Powell shared that he is very pleased with the crowd’s reaction to their execution and hints at bigger things to come this year.

“The entire team is pleased with the Hennessy BRT weekend project, and we are happy that we were able to safely execute and contribute to an iconic experience. A special big up to all the artists for your exhilarating performances. Hennessy is definitely the drink for memorable occasions and celebrations so you can expect nothing less for 2023,” he remarked.

The next staging of BRT weekend will be held on Sunday, April 2, 2023, at Miramar Regional Park, South Florida.
