Due to the COVID-19 crisis, OMP is temporarily closed. We plan to re-open around June 15, 2020.
There’s a place for you in the rainbow of 200+ novices, intermediates, and seasoned pros. End your isolation and get in the mix. Level-up your skills and experience in hosted jam sessions, classes, and events.
Rehearse and record in an affordable, comfortable, convenient, inspiring space that actually sounds amazing. Practice 6 feet apart in a clean room stocked with solid gear. Get out of that musty garage, storage unit, or basement.
OMP is a place for every music-maker - where the full rainbow of music styles, instruments, and skill levels are in the mix.
For individuals who want to meet other players and jam but need somewhat less pod time.
For individuals or groups who need some pod time each month.
For individuals or groups who rehearse two hours or less every week on a set schedule.
For individuals or groups with longer rehearsals each week on a set schedule.
For private music teachers with a set schedule of classes each week.
For companies and non-profits.
Both of our 330 sf pods were custom designed to let sound waves flow smoothly around the room. With twelve slanted walls and ceilings, and enough space for up to 6 players spaced 6-feet apart, OMP pods are like funky living rooms. Ultra-comfy, sound-proof, and climate-controlled.
Our rooms are already set up with Sonar Safari drum kits, bass amps, full PA with monitor, mixer and even sanitized microphones ready to go. Both rooms have a tuned upright piano. Book and manage your rehearsals with the OMP app. Pods, instruments, and gear are cleaned after each session.
OMP's funky stage and lounge can be configured for groups up to 10 players to rehearse 6-feet apart. Noodle around on the piano. Listen to some groovy records. Browse a collection of unusual and interesting books about music, art and culture. Rostov’s coffee on tap, tea, sodas, and bottled water. Free and strong WiFi, too.
CTRL/Command by Richmond artist Noah Scalin is on display in OMP's Lunar Lounge (on loan by the artist). The dynamic sculpture has been on display in Times Square in NYC, and in Washington, DC. The piece riffs on the classic New York City icon of pedestrian traffic signals in an outlandishly oversized format.
All kinds of amps, drums, percussion, synths, keyboards, guitars, and basses. Three tuned pianos. Sonar Safari drum sets in each pod, Roland VR-09 keyboards, Korg synths, Double bass, Dr. Z Maz 18 amp, Roland Jazz Chorus JC 120 and JC 40 amps, Ampeg BA 115 bass amp, Ashdown Five 15 bass amp, Fender Deluxe Reverb amp.
Moog theremin, Roland 808 drum machine, a vintage 70s Baldwin Fun Machine, accordion, pedals, and of course, a cowbell. Make a demo (or just record practice) with a Zoom 4-track recorder. A staff member can help prep your pod for a recording session and deliver an MP3 or Wave file after your session.
