This theatre-like space can accommodate full bands or choirs while seating an audience of up to 150 people. Fully equipped with FOH, stage and backstage facilities, including backline, drum kit, complete sound and lighting rig, it is able to present TV shows, CD & Product launches, conferences and concerts while providing a space for musicians to rehearse or record. With the expertise of our sound engineer, Theo Bodenstein, the amazing Cool Music crew and ou top-class products, this creates a huge opportunity for up-and-coming, as well as established artists, who need a space to call their own.
Cool Music Productions had its humble beginnings with Cool Studios in Ermelo; a recording and eventing business which did music arrangements and recordings, in those days including tape duplications. A family run business, its relocation to Pretoria in 2005 coincided with a deluge of home studios, so the small Centurion studio was only opened in 2012 with Theo Bodenstein as the musical arranger and producer, beginning a new era for Cool Music Productions.
During 2012 Cool Music Productions recorded a few Children albums for Phambilli Publishers, with 4 albums exceeding Gold Record Sales in excess of 25000 copies each. During 2015 we have signed record deals with 6 new very talentent artists.
The following year, a few albums were arranged and recorded for Elizabeth Fourie, and a few other artists, including Franna Benadé, ‘Thys die Bosveldklong’ which featured Ollie Viljoen, the well known accordion player. More music videos and recordings followed.
In 2015 the time arrived to expand and we relocated the Recording studio to the Hillfox Centre in Roodepoort. Ths studio is well equiped with the best recording hardware available. Seating 150 people in the fully equiped Theatre, any shows and live recordings can be accommodated and live streamed.
