Jenny McCarthy, Taylor Kinney, Erin Heatherton, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Chandler Parsons, Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes were among the famous faces that turned out for the event hosted by Burlesque MC Bastard Keith and performances from Future, Twin Shadow and Latin fusion band, Yerba Buena at Weylin B. Seymour’s in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The large scale concert event was the first-of-its-kind to be held at the newly renovated historic Brooklyn landmark.

BACARDI Loud & Untameable LIVE was a multi-sensory spectacle inspired by Havana’s Tropicana Club, the nightclub and cabaret responsible for spreading Cuban culture internationally. Attendees enjoyed epic on-stage performances, lavishly costumed burlesque dancers, authentic hand-rolled Cuban cigars and classic BACARDI cocktails.

“The Bacardi family has been at the heart of the Cuban story since the company’s founding in 1862 in Santiago de Cuba by Don Facundo Bacardi Masso,” said Toby Whitmoyer, vice president and brand managing director, rum category, at Bacardi U.S.A., Inc. “Last night, we toasted with a Cuba Libre to irrepressible spirits everywhere, who like the Bacardi founders, fearlessly pursue their passions.”

The first Cuba Libre was created in 1900 when American and Cuban soldiers came together to celebrate their victory over Spain. A mixture of BACARDI Rum, cola and fresh lime, the Cuba Libre has been enjoyed for nearly 114 years and remains one of the world’s favorite cocktails.

The celebration continues with BACARDI Loud & Untameable online. Visit Pandora.com/BACARDI to access the digital concert series featuring Yerba Buena in collaboration with Wale, White Denim and RDGLDGRN. The three-part series is streaming now through June 30, 2014.
