Drawn to South African Jazz after listening to the music of Abdullah Ibrahim in the early 90´s, Aymeric Péguillan started his journey in the Jazz industry in 2000 when he, together with 3 partners, opened his first Jazz Club ”Pegs Cosy Corner” in Troyeville, JHB. That Jazz Social Club ran for 2 years and was voted Best Late Night (Jazz) Kitchen in JHB for 2 years in a row. Ten years later, Aymeric Péguillan created The Orbit concept which he started with 2 partners in Braamfontein. The Orbit, which Péguillan ran for 3 years, since became the most professional Jazz stage in Johannesburg, hosting more than 300 concerts per year, and often compared to the best Jazz Clubs in the world. The Orbit featured in 2016 in the US based Downbeat Magazine list of Best Jazz Clubs in the world. While at The Orbit, Péguillan facilitated and co-produced the recording of some memorable Live sessions/concerts by leading artists (including Herbie Tsoaeli, Pablo Lapidusas, Cameron Ward, Kesivan Naidoo, Shane Cooper, Bokani Dyer and Feya Faku) Since leaving the Orbit at the end of 2016, Aymeric Peguillan is now an independent concert curator, programer, promoter and producer in the Jazz industry in SA. He has been invoved in a variety of projects under ©Pegs Music Project with the main obejctive to create more quality opportunities for SA Jazz musicians to be able to express themselves creatively and gain recognition.
