Nassau, Bahamas - The new year started off with a bang for Zamar productions as the company was responsible for the world-class lighting, sound and staging provided for four major concerts scheduled around new year's celebrations at two of the major hotels in the country.

They included: The Jacksons, often referred to as "the first family of soul" and eight-time Grammy award-winning artist Fergie performing at the Atlantis Resorts; and The Bahamas own Grammy award-winning band Baha Men and two-time Grammy award nominee Dua Lipa performing at Bahamar. All of these productions went off without a hitch and at a first-class standard due to meticulous production skill - all performed by Zamar.

Production manager for both Bahamar events Roscoe Dames confirmed that the artists were pleased with the set and production that was provided for their concerts.

"As production manager working with Zamar, the premier sound, stage and lighting production company, they continue to not only set the standard, but raise the standard of production in the country to an international level," Dames said.

This past December, Zamar Group Companies launched the Zamar Academy, and 24 staff members graduated from their first  Avixa-led CTS (Certified Technology Specialist) course. Avixa is the trade association representing the professional audio visual and information communication industries worldwide. The launch of the academy and its subsequent first training course was unique in that Zamar flew in the trainer and provided all the materials, as opposed to the staff members having to do an online course. This allowed staff members to interact with the lecturer, ask questions that immediately came to mind, and experience live demonstrations.

"They have been able to maintain and sustain their position in the marketplace because of the Zamar Academy the ongoing training that goes on with the staff  to improve," said Dames.

He added that the company also conducts ongoing maintenance and provision of new products that come into the market for sound, stage and lighting production.

As an attendee of The Jacksons concert, the level of production was amazing - the performance included intricate lighting and audio visual effects, and the sound was par excellence from beginning to end, creating a concert experience that Atlantis guests raved about.

"Zamar continues to maintain a high standard in the production of events," Dames said.

"I am deeply appreciative of the opportunity to be production manager on those two inaugural concerts over at Bahamar and I think everyone at Bahamar was pleased at the outcome. They indicated that the Zamar team was very professional and got the job done as requested and required by the production riders sent by the artists. Hats off to Zamar as they continue to improve the quality and standard of production in the country!
