Beres To Perform At Jazz And Blues Fest

REGGAE singer Beres Hammond will be one of the featured acts at this year's staging of the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival to be held at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium on January 30 to February 1, 2014.

Hammond, 60, is one of five nominees for the Best Reggae Album category at the 56th annual Grammy Awards scheduled for January 26 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

The nomination of One Love, One Life is Hammond's second. The first was for his 2001 effort Music is Life.

In October, the St Mary-born singer was bestowed Jamaica's fourth-highest honour — the Order of Jamaica — by the Government for "his exceptional and dedicated contribution to the music industry".

Hammond has been recording since the early 1970s. Though he first came to prominence as lead singer for the Zap Pow band and as a solo balladeer with producer Willie Lindo during that decade, it was not until the 1980s when he embraced the emerging dancehall sound that he broke through in a big way.

The Lindo-produced What One Dance Can Do revived his career in the mid-1980s. By the next decade, Hammond was a bona fide star, recording countless hit songs for producers like Donovan Germain, head of Penthouse Records.

Germain's hits with Hammond include Tempted To Touch and Pull up The Vibes.

An international cast of American singers is assembled for the 18th staging of the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival. They include Chaka Khan, Toni Braxton, Aaron Neville, Crystal Gayle, Chrisette Michele and Joe.

Beres Hammond Live in Concert

As one of the foremost progenitors of that romantic reggae subset known as lovers rock, veteran singer/songwriter Beres Hammond knows how to bring the heart to a simmer. As a voice of conscience and empowerment in his native Jamaica, Hammond can bring those same hearts to a boil.
Last year’s double-LP One Love, One Life is neatly split between those pursuits, and it finds him in fine form, flexing vocal powers that mark him alongside the likes of Joe Cocker and Columbus cat Josh Krajcik.
Harmony House Singers & Players, DJ Inferno & Ruffneck Sound and Roots High Power Sound System are also on the bill for Tuesday’s party at the Alrosa.

 

When: Tue August 20, 2013 @ 8:00 PM – 11:45 PM
Where: Alrosa Villa
    5055 Sinclair Road
    Columbus,OH 43229
    USA
Cost:25.00

Patrons blew their horns in support of 'host' Tony Rebel, Professor Nuts, Louie Culture, Etana, Marcia Griffiths and Tarrus Riley. However, it was Beres Hammond for whom the plastic horns resonated loudest. There was not a dull moment. In his 45-minute set, as he rocked his audience with songs like She Loves Me Now, Step Aside, I Feel Good, Falling in Love and Can't Stop. "It has been too long Jamaica and I am happy to be here performing for you once more," an energetic Hammond told approving fans. Minutes to midnight, Tony Rebel celebrated his birthday by belting out some of his most popular hits like Fresh Vegetable and If Jah Is Standing By My Side.
