Independence Day weekend got a booze-soaked, tunes-filled kickoff at the iconic Rehab pool party on July 1.

American flags were everywhere, from those perched atop each cabana lining the pool to the bikinis sported by Rehab’s sexy servers. Partiers got patriotic, too, with many sporting red, white and blue board shorts and one dude even rocking a sweet star-spangled bandana under his ball cap. And don’t forget the Bomb Pop—Rehab’s cherry Ciroc concoction was an obvious crowd-pleaser, as the layered red, white and blue deliciousness could be seen in reveler’s hands throughout the afternoon. Basically, this party screamed ’merica!

That could also be said for the talent. Country mashup master Dee Jay Silver manned the booth and served up the hits, from EDM bangers like Calvin Harris’ “This Is What You Came For” to poppy delights like Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” while working in country favorites contemporary (Sam Hunt’s “House Party”) and tried-and-true (Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama”). The crowd seemed to dig every cut, moving to the beat with hands in the air, waving American flag-emblazoned Bud Lights.
