GUINNESS and local singer-songwriter Vince Chong joined forces to bring Guinness fans early Christmas cheer with a Merry Guinness party at Dirty Nelly’s recently.
The exclusive invite-only party was held in conjunction with Vince Chong’s debut Christmas album, launched amidst celebrity friends as well as lucky fans.
Over 100 guests, media and fans were treated to a host of live performances by Vince and friends, Guinness-infused Christ-mas dishes and of course, pints of Guinness throughout the night.
Vince also performed selections from his latest album ‘With you this Christmas’ live at the event.
This is the first time that Vince has performed any song from his latest album in public, making the Merry Guinness party an extra special occasion for guests.
He was joined on stage by local celebrity/ TV host and singer Burn, Daniel Veerapen and his brother, Sean Chong.
“Christmas is a very important occasion for us at Guinness because the brand embodies many qualities that resonate with the season. We are happy that we have the chance to celebrate this Christmas together with Vince and get a first glimpse of his debut Christmas album.” said Guinness Anchor Berhad marketing director Yap Swee Leng.
“It gives me great honour to be part of the Merry Guinness party because Guinness become synonymous with the Christmas celebration. My Christmas would not be complete without having a pint of Guinness with friends and family.”
‘With you this Christmas’ album was co-produced by music legend Michael Veerapen’s son, Daniel Veerapen.
Some of the tracks include the legend himself on the harmonica, followed by his son’s amazing skills on the piano and keyboards. The album features remakes and interpretations of old christmas classics as well as some new original tunes.

Over 70 participating outlets nationwide will be featuring special Guinness-infused Christmas dishes inspired by Masterchef Adam Liaw and Chef Emannuel Stroobant.
On top of that, Yap said, “Guinness is also spreading the Christmas cheer with promotions and limited-edition Guinness merchandise.
