TWO-TIME GRAMMY AWARD REGGAE NOMINEE
BERES HAMMOND RETURNS TO BROWARD CENTER
Known for his soulful smokey-sweet, bourbon-on-the-rocks vocals, Beres Hammond once again returns to the Broward Center’s Au-Rene Theatre on Sunday, August 6, 2017, at 7:30 p.m.
Considered by many to be Jamaica’s greatest singer-songwriter, Hammond received Grammy Award nominations for Music is Life and One Love, One Life. His many top hits include “Tempted to Touch,” “Double Trouble,” “Putting Up Resistance” and “Not Over Until It’s Done.”
Having an estimation of 25 albums to his name, Hammond was awarded the Order of Jamaica for his contribution to the nation’s music industry. Rolling Stone Magazine noted , “A specialist in intimate love songs often told from the viewpoint of the blue-collar, common man, Hammond has been described as his country‘s Marvin Gaye, and also its Springsteen."
Often labeled the King of Lover’s Rock, Hammond’s rich and flavorful delivery has been compared to the passion of Sam Cooke and the gut-wrenching grit of Otis Redding. He also points to these Jamaican greats as major influences. Leroy Sibbles, lead singer for the Heptones, Ken Boothe and rock pioneer Alton Ellis.

MINNIE MARX AND HER BOYS THE MARX BROTHERS
MUSICAL AT THE BROWARD STAGE DOOR THEATRE
Minnie’s Boys is the Broadway musical that captures the Jewish immigrant experience with warmth , love and laughter. Minnie’s absolute love and belief in her sons took them tenements of the lower East Side, and brought them into international stardom as the beloved Marx Brothers.
