JAMROCK Magazine presents the Jamaican musical legend Beres Hammond on September 6, 2008 for his highly anticipated concert, “A Moment In Time”. The concert coincides with his highly anticipated October album release bearing the same name.
Known to many as the originator of “Lover’s Rock” or the “Otis Redding of Reggae”, Beres Hammond has been writing, producing and pouring out his smoky-sweet voice over soulful reggae riddims for over three decades. From his early days as the lead singer of the ’70s funk-reggae infused band Zap Pow, Beres has consistently produced hits and number one singles. As the cornerstone to Lover’s Rock, he has inspired the next generation of reggae soul singers and international superstars like Wyclef Jean and Alicia Keys.
Beres Hammond has repeatedly sold out some of the largest and most prestigious venues like the Theatre at Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall. This time around he makes his way to the elegant Westchester County Center, tucked away in the outskirts of New York City. The lavishly decorated venue gives an intimate feel, keeping fans up close and personal with Beres.
Fans can look forward to hearing timeless classics like, “Tempted to Touch” and “Rock Away” as well as brand new material from his eagerly awaited album to be released October 2008.
WHEN: September 6, 2008. Doors Open @ 8pm. Showtime @ 9pm.
