The Orbit concept finds its roots and spirit in a small Jazz Social Club established in Troyeville, Johannesburg, in the early 2000’s by Aymeric Péguillan and 3 other partners. Peg’s Cosy Corner, as the venue was called, presented an intimate environment where musicians and jazz aficionados would hang around to listen to occasional live music and recordings till late at night around a drink.
Twelve years later (in 2014), a venue was reborn in Braamfontein, a booming and dynamic part of town, where Péguillan and his 2 partners, Dan Sermand & Kevin Naidoo, developed a concept that would lead the way in offering the best possible creative expression platform for jazz musicians in Johannesburg. The Orbit – Home of Jazz, a Live Music venue and Bistro, came to life., final
