Reggae hit machine Beres Hammond will join Australian soft-pop duo Air Supply as headline acts at the annual Groovin’ In The Park Concert at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York, June 29.

Hammond, who ignited New York City when he last appeared on Groovin’ at Roy Wilkins Park in 2012, is expected to again have his way with music lovers when he belts out favourites like RockawayIn Love With YouWhat One Dance Can DoShe Loves Me NowStep AsideDouble Trouble, and Putting Up Resistance.

Hammond’s stellar career was launched in the 1970s with the release ofOne Step Ahead, a blockbuster single which stayed at number one on the charts for 14 weeks. In the ’80s, he cemented his name with the smash Tempted to Touch, and subsequent albums Love AffairFull 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 the Billboard reggae chart.

Whenever pop duo Air Supply is mentioned, it is always in superlative, A-list tones. In 2011, they mesmerised music fans at the annual JamaicaJazz & Blues Festival, and left music lovers begging for more.

“We are excited about signing the group to perform in Roy Wilkins Park for the very first time,” an elated Andrea Bullens, co-producer and executive of Groovin’ Inc said.

“Air Supply is a powerful group. Their catalogue of hit songs is impressive. To have a group of their stature share the stage with reggae icon Beres Hammond will be a musical treat for fans. I am confident it will be a fantastic presentation,” she added.
