This fanatical passion for music led to an idea that would change the face of the Sir Thomas Brewing Company for co-owner, Nico, forever.
The story around the creation of the Orgasmic music gallery is an interesting one, to say the least. The founders were introduced to each other by a mutual friend and it didn’t take long for Nico Pieterse and Franco Hamman to find common ground on the topic of analog audio, music, rock and roll, and the greatest bands of the last five decades. This fanatical passion for music led to an idea that would change the face of the Sir Thomas Brewing Company for co-owner, Nico, forever. Franco had a full analog recording studio stored in his garage at home, Nico had space to store it and suddenly a storage transaction turned into a full-blown analog recording studio, created to have fun, listen to music and enjoy music the way it is supposed to be enjoyed. The unlimited bandwidth that comes with analog audio gives the listener a chance to embark on a journey that explores frequencies at a sensory level, an experience that tells the truth, that shows the faults and exposes the performance in a theatrical fashion.
Having built the studio, originally for enjoyment, the project very quickly turned into a small business that can offer clients, analog and digital recording, live streaming concerts, editing, voice-overs, analog music theatre, concert venue, and more. Unfortunately, the Sir Thomas Brewing company had to close its doors, but OMG as it stands will continue to build on the wonderful foundations of a venue with a rich history in the arts. Our venue is not only a former craft brewery but also a well-known theater with deep routes in the South African music industry as the “Dorp Straat Teater”
Franco, Nico and the new partners, Conrad Jamneck and Natasha Frost bring almost one hundred years of experience in the music industry to the table and we are privileged to welcome artists and enthusiasts of audio and video alike
