Four decades at the top of his game for the king of Lovers Rock Beres Hammond. The Jamaican reggae star has released over 20 albums and been awarded the Order of Jamaica. His unique smoky soulful singing style and insistence on playing with a live band and writing his own songs has always set him apart from his peers. A true legend. The supporting line up is a real who’s who of reggae talent featuring Maxi Priest, Carroll Thompson and Janet Kay. We really need to know if Kay can still hit those insane glass shattering high notes in the song ‘Silly Games’.
