Beres Hammond with special guests Maxi Priest & Romain Virgo
Revel in a night of feel-good reggae and “lovers’ rock” with three of the genre’s top-name artists: GRAMMY Award nominee Beres Hammond (“One Love, One Life,” “Rockaway”) and his special guests Maxi Priest (“Close to You”) and Romain Virgo (“Soul Provider”).
Long-reigning singer and songwriter Beres Hammond (“I Feel Good,” “Groovy Little Thing”) 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. He is among a handful of people responsible for maintaining a mighty legacy of soulful reggae music: select artists like Toots Hibbert and Bob Marley.
GRAMMY-nominated vocalist Maxi Priest’s recordings of “Without a Woman” and “How Can We Ease the Pain” represent his past musical partnerships with Beres Hammond. His recent smash album, Easy to Love, is an effortless blend of reggae, R&B, dancehall and lovers’ rock.
The youngest winner of Jamaica’s Rising Stars TV competition for his dynamic voice, Romain Virgo was the first Jamaican artist to perform at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Nashville. His hits include “Fade Away” (with Agent Sasco), “LoveSick” and “Wha This Pon Me.”
