Beres Hammond

  • New Jersey Performing Arts Center 1 Center Street Newark, NJ, 07102 United States (map)

Revel in a night of feel-good reggae and “lovers’ rock” with Grammy Award nominee Beres Hammond (One Love, One Life, Rockaway) and friends! Long-reigning singer and songwriter Beres Hammond has lent his signature, smoky-sweet style — often compared to Otis Redding or Teddy Pendergrass — to every kind of riddim track, from the funked-up reggae jams of 1970s fusion (performed with his then-band, Zap Pow), to the lush instrumentation of his classic Soul Reggae LP, to the spare digital beats of his dancehall breakthrough, What One Dance Can Do, and its follow-up, A Love Affair. He is among a handful of people responsible for maintaining a mighty legacy of soulful reggae music: select artists like Toots Hibbert, Bob Marley, Gregory Isaacs, and Dennis Brown.
