'Tamp Agency' A Husband & Wife Dream to Enhance Small Salons in Jamaica

Because Marketing is not selling, Tamp Agency has built its foundation on creating marketing concepts that are unique to its clients to enhance growth in their businesses. The agency is the conceptualization of a husband and wife team, Lloyd and Doreen McKay where Lloyd the Marketer and Doreen the Cosmetologist both merged their skills to create a family based, inter-personal, innovative and service oriented agency with an aim to provide professional marketing services for beauty salon owners/operators who are interested in expansion.  "The salon industry does not have a regulatory body that stipulate the conditions to which stylists are approved before they establish themselves," said Mr. McKay.  "There are many small salons that need help and this is what TAMP Agency brings, 'new ideas and approach' to such businesses that need to grow." 

The agency currently operates from the couple's home office in Kingston but Mr. McKay thinks that will change soon as Tamp is the designate marketing and distribution company for Our Styles Our Way Inspirational Hair, a new quarterly magazine publication and a production of LAMP Media Group, a registered company in the United States. 'Jamaica Trends' is the title of the premier issue and promises to be a collector's item offering a variety of inspirational hair styles across Jamaica, Miami, and the English speaking Caribbean as well as interviews and special features with Cosmetologists and Beauty Specialist across the region.  
"The fashion industry has successfully made their designers into top celebrities so it is appropriate for Caribbean Hair Stylists and Beauticians to receive similar accolades" explained Doreen McKay who is a Senior Stylist at a trendy salon in Kingston.  The TAMP Agency involvement in promoting Our Styles Inspirational Hair magazine in Jamaica enhances the prospect of the company.  Both Lloyd and Doreen are passionate about the industry and has been working in unison for years before this idea materialized.  "to the onlooker it may seem like a spontaneous decision but for us its another marriage" laughed Lloyd.  "Our ideas and work came together and bonded as we and our family have over the years" he said, This however, came after many challenges some life threatening but through it all, the focus has been to stick together, "and we have" they said smiling at each other, which is why this couple of ten years of marriage is optimistic about the future of TAMP Agency.

Glamis Arena Zimbabwe Came Alive With a Three Hour Performance by Fantan Mojah

Zimbabweans set aside their dissapointment in the absence of the God Father of Jamaican Soul Music, Mr. Beres Hammond, Saturday October 15th at Glamis Arena, Harare, Zimbabwe when Fantan Mojah gave possibly his best and longest performance to date in a single show.  It was indeed Fantan's first ever performance on an African stage and the bobo was prepared to give his fans as much as he could give in a single performance.  Entering the stage with his 'Fire Child' single to an highly energized, humongous crowd that had already been swamped with a superb performance by veteran Reggae artiste Cocoa Tea, Fantan Mojah was in control.  Fantan's three hours of performance excited the crowd at the Lion Lager Beer Festival from start to finish, he almost sang his entire catalogue and interacted well with the audience who received him with much appreciation which was demonstrated by a show of full encore for every song he sang, "me heart full" said Fantan, "the feeling I get when people show me the love my Zimbabweans fans show me, words can't explain" he said.   

The kudos for Fantan Mojah's performance flooded the local news as several news paper had his face on the front pages the next day.  One report said the Jamaicans unleashed their, 'scintillating stage craft and melodious vibes.' Fans took to the internet to show their appreciation for his presentation sending emails and a few posts.  It was a good and bad day for the Zimbabweans who were also mourning the death of one of their artiste, Tongai Moyo who died of a brain tumor he had been ailing with for sometime on Saturday the very day of the show.  

Fantan Mojah remains in Zimbabwe and is scheduled to make a second appearance in Bulawayo on October 22 at Queens Sport Club.
