OOOTH & OOOTH ENTERTAINMENT
In September 2018, Jason decided to broaden his musical horizons to include a singer/songwriter position by replacing his drumsticks with a Gibson electric guitar and mic as front man of ‘Oooth’. Since 2017 he has also created 5 show-stopping Tribute Shows, 2 Cover Bands and a Drummer/DJ Duo taking to the stage with some of South Africa’s biggest local music legends to play various shows and events across the country. With a variety of offerings like these, it was no surprise when ‘Oooth Entertainment’ was born.
In July 2018, JASON launched his own signature snare drum range, entitled J.O Drums. J.O Drums are the first of its kind in Africa where everything besides the skins on it, have been made from scratch in one place. The J.O Drums are 100% handmade from start to finish; their focus is the production of a snare that connects with the player who purchases it.
OOOTH BRANDED MERCHANDISE
Following on from the Oooth brand, Jason has launched his own apparel line named ‘Oooth Clothing’ alongside other Oooth Branded Merchandise. Adding 2 Blends of his signature coffee brand, ‘Oooth Coffee’, and an ‘Oooth Wine’ 2019 Pinotage, Oooth certainly offers a variety for all.
