RECORDING STUDIOS’ 5TH BIRTHDAY – Interview with Nicol from The Good Luck Bar

Hear Yee! Recording Studios’ 5th Birthday Bash is an amazing celebration lined up on 25th June 2016. With a great lineup of bands kicking off at 12 noon to help us celebrate this milestone at the fabulous venue The Good Luck Bar, we are using our birthday event to raise money for deaf children who have never experienced the magic of music.

Get to know the venue…and who runs it

Over the past couple of weeks we have been interviewing members from each of the bands who will be playing…but today we put the spotlight on this awesome gent who is letting us invade his venue – in our opinion the best venue in Joburg –  for the day.

Nicol van den Berg from The Good Luck Bar


Let’s roll with the questions then…

Tell us about your earliest memory of hearing music as a child

The first music I heard as a kid, that struck me was Laurika Rauch’s music. Still love her tunes to this day.

All online ticket buyers stand a chance to win a pair of Black Faff customised Converse sneakers. If you were to design your own sneakers – what design would you go with?

I would go with a something geeky, incorporate Bobs Burgers, or some comic thing.




The Good Luck Bar is going from strength to strength – congratulations! How did you guys come up with the concept?

Thank you, and its only successful because of the support we get from the rest of the music industry, and of course you guys for hosting an event here.

You’re one busy man! Tell us about a day in the life of Nicol

Hahah, I am pretty much at The Good Luck Bar most of the time. We try and get our work done, and then we enjoy the events we put up, and drink Hellfire with our clients. I’ll buy the first round on Saturday.


The Good Luck Bar is a place for people of the new South Africa that want a good time, with good people, while experiencing live original music

For someone who has never been there before – can you tell them why they should be coming to checkout this awesome venue?

The Good Luck Bar is a place for people of the new South Africa that want a good time, with good people, while experiencing live original music.

Our aim with the money raised from this event is to help a child experience the magic of music. Can you recall a moment in your life when music struck you so profoundly that it changed you?

Every day that this bar is open 🙂


Thanks for the interview – we are so stoked to be hosting our event at your amazing venue. Thanks for letting us in to play. 🙂
