Beres Hammond at BAM

One of Jamaica’s biggest reggae legends is coming to Brooklyn.

On July 15 and 17, the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House will host Beres Hammond, who, in his more than 35-year career has produced such hits as “Tempted to Touch,” “Groovy Little Thing,” and the R&B flavored “No Disturb Sign.”

Hear him live, as the passionate songwriter and vibrant performer pulls from his latest, “A Moment in Time,” the artists’s 25th release, which finds him moving from reggae to R&B to avant-garde jazz, all in his signature, mellifluous voice.

Also joining Hammond on the bill are another long-running Jamaican act, the reggae roots band Culture, on both nights, and the “Queen of Reggae “herself, Marcia Griffiths, on July 17.

Tickets for the July 15, which starts at 8 p.m., show are $58, $78, $88 and $98. The July 17 show is at 9 p.m., with tickets costing $60, $85, $99, and $125. The bills are presented by Jammins Entertainment.

The good vibes continue into the weekend, when, on July 18, Jammins Entertainment also presents “Soul Music Legends Live.” The night features, as promised, such legendary acts as the Stylistics. The Manhattans, The Chi-Lites, Blue Magic, and the Charlie Thomas Drifters. This one’s for one night only.

The show starts at 8 p.m., with tickets costing $68, $88 and $98.
