Will my real true reggae fans please stand up? If you do not at least one one by the following Reggae crooners, I’m going to need you to go somewhere and sit down. I was looking at my friend’s newly started blog and I saw some locations in which Sanchez and Beres Hammond are going to be performing all season long until Sepetember (courtesy of VP Records). They are going to be touring all over popular states in the US including NYC, Texas, Massachusetts and Rhode Island to put on a show of true Reggae music both old and new.
Sanchez’s Tour is entitled “Now & Forever” as part of a promotion for his newly released CD with the the same title on VP Records. One song that could be suggested and is getting some real crazy play right now is “Trust in Me” on the Water Pumping Riddim. Whoa it takes us Lover’s Rock Reggae heads back to them days when Sanchez was in “Frenzy” and all about making you feel like “The World’s Greatest” with his renditions of “If I Ever Fall in Love” and “Lady in Red”. Born Kevin Anthony Jackson in Kingston, Jamaica, this man has been in the industry long enough (twenty plus years) with his sensual lyrics in songs such as “Frenzy”, “No More Heartaches”, “You Said You Loved Me” and “Missing You”. With his next few appearances in NYC including CPAC in Brooklyn and Mingles Cafe in The Bronx in conjuction with Jamrock Magazine, you definitely “Never Dis Di Man” for trying to let people know he is still the boss.
“Remember the songs, used to make you Rockaway” and make you “Feel Good”? Beres, Beres and Beres Hammond got tunes for days. Before bending over and the daggering stage, there was baby making music-Reggae style with them subliminal bedroom lyrics that had couples “Tempted to Touch”. It’s amazing “What One Dance Can Do” as soon as he jump up on that stage and has his auidience both young and old singing along to every song from start to finish. Though he started out as High Beresford Hammond trying to become popular in the 1970’s in Saint Mary Jamaica, it is in the 1990’s in which Beres made in his on the Reggae scene with his soulful lyrics, even with tunes that we probably haven’t heard of. You need to make a it mission if you are a true lover of Reggae music to go and wotness a perforemance with Beres, you will never regret it. His latest accomplishment includes relearsing an album two years ago enitled “A Moment in Time”. As he continues to tour with his everlasting music, this man will leave you with the overall message of “100% of Love”.
