Inner Circle and Beres Hammond Bring Reggae to Hard Rock Live
The blank stares greeting mentions of reggae band Inner Circle turn to nods of recognition once the Jamaican group is linked to "Bad Boys," the ubiquitous theme from Cops (and eventually a couple of Will Smith-Martin Lawrence blockbusters).
Brothers Ian and Roger Lewis formed Inner Circle in 1968, and the crew has endured numerous lineup shuffles and a breakup in 1980 following the death of frontman Jacob Miller. After re-forming a few years later (and the added boost of Cops), the band hit mainstream MTV stardom in 1992 with "Sweat (A La La La La Long)." Since then, Inner Circle has maintained a steady touring schedule around the globe, from the Philippines to our own backyard. So bad boys, what'cha gonna do? Catch these reggae icons along with another Jamaican, Beres Hammond, as their "For the Love of It" tour hits their current homeland, South Florida.
