Drai’s Nightclub started the New Year off strong with Drai’s residents Fat Joe (1/4) and Nelly (1/5) live in concert over the weekend! We had a number of NFL players that came in to celebrate, including members of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Pittsburgh Steelers, and 49ers Richard Sherman, Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle!
Fat Joe had the honor on Friday of doing our first show of 2019, and as usual delivered a memorable set for longtime fans and partygoers. Rocking a very rare pair of the friends & family-only Jordan 4 ‘Wahlburgers,’ Joe began his show with “New York,” “Pick It Up,” and took us all the way back to 1998 with “Twinz” – “Lots of beautiful ladies tonight, Happy New Year! This gonna be our year!” The packed crowd couldn’t agree more as he performed standouts “Get It Poppin’,” “My Lifestyle” and “What’s Love” for all the ladies in the building, singing along to the chorus. He also took a brief moment to pay respects to The Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac, playing “Hypnotize” and “California Love” respectively – “You know we in the West Coast, we gotta give em this!” Fat Joe closed it out on a high note with chart-toppers “All the Way Up,” “All I Do Is Win” and “Still Not a Player” – “Vegas I go by the name of Joe the Don, I love y’all!”
Saturday evening was filled with action and surprises; you never know what’s going to happen with a Nelly show here at Drai’s! The good vibes and incredible energy was in the air from start to finish, and Nelly certainly felt it as he stepped up on stage before his show to warm the jam-packed crowd up. It all started with “E.I.” and “Air Force Ones” as Nelly and the St. Lunatics took the party to the next level, also playing and mixing in many of today’s hottest rap hits in between his classics – “Is the West Coast in the building one time?! Ladies if you’ve been riding with Nelly since day 1 I want you to sing this with me!” It was certainly getting “Hot in Herre” as everyone sang along and danced, followed by “Ride Wit Me” and “The Fix” as screams filled the venue. Nelly ended his show with “Dilemma” and an encore with “Pimp Juice,” but it didn’t stop there – 49ers stars Richard Sherman, Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle joined him on stage for some fun, keeping the celebrations going all night long. “I wanna thank Drai’s for having me tonight! Shout out to everybody that came out, thank you!”
Nelly will be making his return to Drai’s Nightclub on Friday, January 18! Click here for tickets.
