The Jamaican reggae superstar and undisputed king of lovers rock returns to the Broward Center for another 2-night stand as summertime winds down.

Famous for his soulful vibe and smoky-sweet, bourbon-on-the-rocks vocals, this Grammy Award–nominated singer-songwriter known as the “Otis Redding of Reggae” has a hit list that stretches for miles and includes the songs “Tempted to Touch,” “I Feel Good,” “Putting Up Resistance,” “Rockaway,” “No Disturb Sign” and many more.

Beres was born Hugh Beresford Hammond on August 28, 1955, in Annotto Bay, in the Jamaican province of St. Mary. Hammond grew up listening to his father’s collection of American R&B (Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, etc.) and jazz, and also fell in love with native Jamaican music during the ska and rocksteady eras; his primary influence was Alton Ellis, and he also listened to the likes of Peter Tosh, the Heptones, and Ken Boothe.

Come early and experience Rockaway Village, a vibrant vendor village. Concertgoers can explore an array of goods from local artisans, enjoy drinks and light bites from the bar at Marti’s, and immerse themselves in the festiveCaribbean and Reggae-themed ambiance, making it a perfect prelude to the concerts. Local endors are encouraged to register and showcase their creations, adding to the community’s rich tapestry of creativity and talent. Vendor Registration will be available in the near future.

Beres Hammond, Jamaica’s beloved Godfather of Lover’s Rock, released his newest single, “Let Me Help You;” an ode to a woman that Beres wants to see smile again. Recognizing that life has given her some difficult times, Beres lifts her burdens by lending a listening ear and complimenting her virtues.

The re-recorded version of the 1988 song “Let Me Help You” shines with Beres’s smoky-sweet voice that is synonymous with Lover’s Rock.
