Beres Hammond Announces “Take Time to Love” Tour


Legendary reggae artist Beres Hammond embarks on his “Take Time to Love” North American tour beginning tonight. Known for his smooth, soulful style, Beres returns to the North America with a full band presentation to keep fans rocking all summer long.

The nineteen city tour will showcase new arrangements of fan favorites and international hits spanning his three-decade long musical career. Hammond grew up listening to American soul and pop music from the likes of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, which formed the foundation for his iconic lover’s rock reggae sound. From topping Billboard Reggae Charts to earning a Grammy nomination for his hit album “One Love, One Life” in 2014, there are no signs of him stopping anytime soon.

Joining Hammond on select stops will be reggae songstress Marcia Griffiths. Concert-goers will also be able to enjoy live sets from The Harmony House Musicians and DJ Inferno. The tour begins Tuesday July 11th in New Haven, CT, running through to the Northeast and Canada and ending in Ft. Lauderdale Florida on August 6th.

“VP Records is very proud to be associated with this artist,” said Christopher Chin, president of VP Records. “Beres’ music continues to evolve and his passion for performing is evident in all of his live shows. This is a tour that can’t be missed.”
