About

OOOTH plays it forward - Tattooers Unite SA & #FeedOurCrew Fundraiser


JASON OOSTHUIZEN well-known South African Drummer for bands like Van Coke Kartel, The Narrow and frontman for OOOTH, has decided to use this lockdown time to PLAY IT FORWARD and give back to the TATTOO ARTISTS of South Africa.


Just like the musicians, TATTOO ARTISTS are struggling through this time not being able to work and generate an income. Throughout Jason's career he has made many friends in the TATTOO INDUSTRY who sponsored him with so many tattoos, that Jason decided it was time to give back in the form of a FACEBOOK LIVE & YOUTUBE performance and raise awareness through SOCIAL MEDIA.


The show will feature 4 of the top tattoo artists in Gauteng as well as a mystery online guest in an Interview and Q&A session followed by a live performance by rock band, OOOTH.


Questions to the artists can be sent in prior to the event as well as during the event and donations raising funds for the supporting causes (TATTOOERS UNITE SA, SOS Charity Fund and #FeedOurCrew) are welcomed before and during the show.


This unique experience will be hosted LIVE from the MGG Stream Studio and we would like to give a special thanks to MGG Productions & DWR Distribution for all their assistance.


Since lockdown, many industries have been left unable to trade, including musicians, theatre and entertainment technicians as well as minimum 380 tattoo artists. “We want to encourage people to donate any amount they can afford,” said Jason. “Tattoo artists and technicians are in a tough situation right now and we want to do our bit to help.”

DWR supplies equipment to theatres, rental companies, schools, restaurants, places of worship entertainment and the architectural market. From lighting to audio, LED screens, trussing, theatre manufacturing and cabling, our team is focused on service and support, and we regularly host training at our premises in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban.  


DWR Distribution is assisting in various aspects and in return their aim is to raise awareness for the DWR SOS Charity Fund and #FeedOurCrew as well as donate their full percentage of donations received to this initiative.


MGG is one of South Africa’s largest and leading suppliers of technical services and equipment – a position we hold because we embody everything our industry demands.  MGG also wanted to highlight the plight of hundreds of freelancers in their industry, many of whom are reliant on food vouchers provided by #feedourcrew.


The SOS Charity Fund, which forms part of DWR Distribution is a charity organization aimed at freelancers in the entertainment and theatre industry and was created in December 2017. The SOS aims to lend a helping hand, on a merit basis and assists with deeds like providing grocery hampers, helping with medical bills, funeral costs and helping with finances for motivational youth projects or as the need arises.


#FeedOurCrew is an initiative supported by DWR & MGG to raise funds for Freelance Technical  Crew that are suffering severely during this time. #FeedOurCrew's objective is to provide temporary support, through food vouchers. They want to assist those members of teams that contribute tirelessly towards creating memorable events who now need help.
