Stars flock to Clive Davis’ epic Memorial Day weekend bash

Dionne Warwick, Martha Stewart, Kathie Lee Gifford and Regis Philbin were among the famous guests who joined music mogul Clive Davis for an epic Memorial Day weekend of sailing, swimming and singing.

Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas, Tamron Hall, Tony Award-winning duo Fran and Barry Weissler, NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas, Apple Music’s Larry Jackson, Phil and Lucy Suarez and Francine Lefrak were among the 80 guests invited by Davis to a three-day bash that started Friday night with a Statue of Liberty sunset dinner cruise, and ended with an amateur talent contest at the music executive’s Pound Ridge, NY, estate.

Saturday began with a lavish brunch at the estate followed by swimming in his two pools, a tennis tournament, plus volleyball and bike riding. That evening, guests gathered at Davis’ guest house for cocktails and a sit-down dinner followed by a viewing of an hourlong film of his pre-Grammy gala from February.

Sunday kicked off with more activities and a barbecue and ended with Davis’ annual Pound Ridge Got Talent competition — where 14 guests (professional performers are excluded) competed onstage at Davis’ home theater to win over the star-studded crowd.

In the end, Benny Hansen (formerly of the Metropolitan Museum of Art) won by performing “Dentist!” from “Little Shop of Horrors.” He narrowly beat The Post’s Michael Riedel, who performed a sardonic mix of stories and jokes.
