Over the past five years, brothers Daniel and Derek Koch have put together some of the most talked-about Hamptons parties, and on July 5 their handiwork will “RISE” again.

Once affiliated with the Day & Night entertainment group, the sibling upscale event organizers are widely known on the international club circuit for their DJ-powered brunch gatherings -- which under the Day & Night banner were held in such major cities as Manhattan, Miami, Cannes, Monaco, St. Barts and Saint-Tropez -- but the East End was also a location for many of their efforts, as between 2009-2013 the duo also devised numerous seasonal daytime bashes based in the Hamptons. Moving their happenings from Southampton to East Hampton to Montauk, the Koch brothers drew hundreds of people on several different occasions -- a portion of which being internationally traveling fun-seekers -- and the get-togethers were always press-grabbers, as the high-profile socials featured such notable amenities as guests being flown in by the promoters, and premiere bottles of champagne directly delivered to party attendees by skydiving servers.

However, Derek and Daniel are no longer part of Day & Night (which is still throwing summer Hamptons parties; this season at Sienna in East Hampton), but have branched out on their own and on Saturday, July 5, will be presenting RISE, an Independence Day weekend fete to be held at 1OAK in Southampton.

The pair already held a preview, outside-only version of RISE during Memorial Day weekend, but are now presenting a larger version -- one that will offer both an outdoor component on 1OAK’s tented, weather-protected patio, and an indoor option where two 60” TVs will run FIFA World Cup play, while dance-worthy beats will be spun by DJs Steve Powers and Paul Hamr throughout the affair.

Tables are available to reserve for $2,000-$25,000, and gourmet catering can be booked for an additional $250. The party runs from 2 p.m.-6 p.m.; for more information and RSVPs call 212-242-1111 or send an email to

RISE at 1OAK: 125 Tuckahoe Lane, Southampton, 631-204-5433
