Beres returns to Groovin in the Park

Reggae’s timeless idol Beres Hammond, who has performed at the annual “Groovin In The Park at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York on two previous occasions, has been invited to be one of the headliners for the annual festival on Sunday, June 26, 2016.
“We are excited to welcome the return of the King to Groovin’ In The Park for the third time” event CEO Christopher Roberts, of Groovin Inc. disclosed.
“Based on calls to our office, emails we have received over the past 7 months and feedback on all our social media platforms, Beres is by far the most requested performer by fans so we had no choice but to book him this year” Roberts continued.
Hammond ignited the Big Apple with musical flames when he appeared on Groovin’ In The Park in 2014. He was joined for that historic performance by Australian pop duo Air Supply, Chronixx, reggae quartet L.U.S.T, Marcia Griffiths, Bob Andy, Judy Mowatt and Ken Boothe.
Hammond also performed on the festival in 2012. This year he is again expected to have his way with music lovers when he belts out favorites like “Rockaway,” “In Love With You,” “What One Dance Can Do,” “Step Aside” “Double Trouble” and “Putting Up Resistance.”
Hammond’s stellar career was launched in the 70’s with the release of “One Step Ahead,” a blockbuster single which stayed at number one on the charts for 14 weeks. In the 80’s he cemented his name with the smash “Tempted to Touch”  and subsequent albums “Love Affair,” “Full Attention” (1993), “In Control” (1994), “Love From a Distance” (1996), “A Day In The Life” (1998), “Music is Life” (2011) and “One Love One Life” (2012), which topped reggae charts worldwide.
