Who wants to see two reggae icons playing the same show in New York City!? This guy! This year’s much anticipated “Singers In Action – Part II” (Presented By Jammins Entertainment,CCB International & Gcity Entertainment ) is schedule for two days at two venues across two states. The concert will feature Beres Hammond along with Luciano at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC on Friday, August 2nd. Doors open at 8pm with Showtime at 9pm.
Reggae connoisseurs sigh at the mention of his name; he is the consummate storyteller. There isn’t an aspect of romantic relationships that Beres Hammond hasn’t transformed into a classic (Reggae) song; whether written from the perspective of a keen observer or willing and sometimes unwilling protagonist, each is delivered with Beres’ signature smoky, soulful grit. For Over twenty years Beres have maintained his hit-making streak and continue his reign as Jamaica’s most esteemed singer. Nowhere is that adoration more apparent than at his riveting, dependably sold out concert performances, notably the recent Sounds of Reggae (12.12.12) at the brand new Barclays Center. As he tiers through hit after hit, Beres often extends the microphone towards the audience who exuberantly sing along, often drowning out his extremely delighted performance on stage.
The messenger has garnered numerous awards and accolades in recognition of his exemplary contributions to reggae music and Jamaican culture. His most recent was in October, 2007 when he received The Order of Distinction (OD) from the Government of Jamaica. He is constantly working to advance and preserve Roots and Culture Reggae and maintains the integrity of the music by expressing spirituality and conscientiousness with sincerity. He remains a leader among those next-generation reggae artists who’ve held fast to the music’s original intentions. As the Messenger he is an emissary whose work contains important teachings for humanity, and who peacefully continues to strive for the betterment of society. As such, his songs have the power to touch the soul, to communicate spiritual truths and uplift our hearts to an unprecedented degree.
