The Ultimate Hamptons Parties: Jason Derulo, Hannah Bronfman, and Some Very Hot Surfers

If there’s one thing that stays consistent with each season the Hamptons brings, it’s those benevolent New Yorkers and Hamptonites offering up their sprawling mansions to throw swanky soirees for their particular pet cause. The hottest ticket this weekend was the Hamptons Live benefit concert with Jason Derulo, held at power couple Julie and Billy Macklowe’s expansive Sagaponack compound, to benefit VH1’s Save the Music Foundation. To date, the charity has raised over $800 million to fund crucial music education in America’s public schools.

To get the party cranking, celebrity DJ duo Hannah Bronfman and Brendan Fallis spun tunes for the usual mix of Hamptons socials, Real NY Housewives, designers and other assorted boldfacers, including Tiffany Trump, Milly’s Michelle Smith and Bobby Flay. What really turned up the heat was Jason Derulo’s riveting performance, including his sexified hits “Want to Want Me,” “Marry Me,” and “Whatcha Say,” with a full band and backup dancers. While guests were partying it up, Derulo endearingly summated the urgency of the evening’s cause: “Music has always been a great part of my life, it kept me off the streets. I’m fortunate to have this platform where I can speak about things that I actually care about, and music is one the most important.”

Further East was the Surfrider Foundation’s Two Coasts: One Ocean benefit, whose mission is to preserve and protect our oceans and coastline. Set on an estate atop the hills of Montauk, guests from the music, art and fashion worlds enjoyed sweeping views of the sunset over the ocean and Montauk Lake at the surfer-themed backyard soiree.

Priceless auction items included a handmade bicycle by Shinola, as well as an afternoon Hamptons ride and lunch with supermodel Carolyn Murphy, Paris Fashion Week with Kenzo, a surf session with Quincy Davis, and a day out on the waves with singer and surfer Donavon Frankenreiteir. To set the 70s bohemian gypset vibe, big wave surfer DJ KK played retro surf tunes while coastal activists mingled with creative notables such as Bruce Weber, Cynthia Rowley, Athena Calderone, Ben Watts, hotelier Sean MacPherson, and pro surfers Quincy Davis and Mikey Detemple.

Montauk Locals Have a Message for Weekend Warriors: GTFO

Year-round residents of Montauk have a message for summer visitors from Manhattan: stop partying or leave. The New York Post reports that East End locals are asking officials to force bars to stop serving alcohol at 2 AM. They aired their grievances at an East Hampton Town Board meeting on Tuesday, where dozens of summer-share protestors came out with some colorful thoughts to share.

Apparently, the Fourth of July was the straw that broke the camel’s back when the “raucous hipsters” partied until dawn, urinated in bushes, and had sex on the side of the road. One resident pointed out that “Montauk is turning into Hamptons Bays,” where the rents are typically lower. Aside from requesting that bars close earlier, locals are suggesting that some extra-loud clubs shut down, illegally parked cars get towed more quickly, and that all renters are listed in a registry of sorts. Montauk might have the reputation of a laid-back surfer town, but spots like The Surf Lodge make it nighttime destination for the weekend crowd.

In true 21st century fashion, locals have started a “Fighting for Montauk” Facebook page to protest the crowds and save the town from the bearded, whiskey-chugging direction it’s going. Jayma Cardoso, owner of the Surf Lodge, spoke to Curbed Hamptons earlier today in response to the residents’ concerns. She admits that Montauk has been inundated with more visitors than it’s used to, but doesn’t think it’s fair for residents to point fingers at her business, which already closes at 2 AM (though it’s allowed to stay open until 4 AM). “I spend a great deal of time focusing on how to be a better neighbor, how to create a safer environment, and how to continually build a culture via my business that Montauk can be proud of,” she told Curbed.
