|Beres Hammond Back For More|
Known as the “Otis Redding of Reggae” for his soulful vibe and smoky-sweet, bourbon-on-the-rocks vocals, Beres Hammond returns to the Au-Rene Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, July 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets go on sale Friday, May 6th. Tickets are $30 – $125 with $110 LAN & TAM Airlines Club Level seats available.
Considered by many to be Jamaica’s greatest practicing singer-songwriter, Hammond received Grammy Award nominations for Music is Life and One Love, One Life. His many top hits include “Tempted to Touch,” “Double Trouble,” “Putting Up Resistance” and “Not Over Until It’s Done.”
With what he estimates to be 25 albums to his name, Hammond was awarded the Order of Jamaica for his contribution to the nation’s music industry.
Hammond grew up listening to his father’s collection of soul legends Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding. Born in Jamaica’s garden parish St. Mary, Hammond made regular trips to the downtown record shops in Kingston and points to the musical influences of Jamaican greats such as Heptones lead singer Leroy Sibbles, velvety vocalist Ken Boothe and rock steady pioneer Alton Ellis.
After graduating from high school, Hammond joined the fusion band Zap Pow. Four years later, he went solo and released Soul Reggae that included the hit single “One Step Ahead,” which held the number one spot on the Jamaican charts for three-and-a-half months and continues to be a fan favorite for his signature impassioned vocals.
