Gig Information

Legendary Auckland DJ and former 95bFM programme director, Dom Nola (aka Miss Dom), fell for 45s as a young girl 'There was a 7 of the Rolling Stones’ 'Honky Tonk Woman' floating around in a large bag of records that my brother inherited from our grown-up sister; I loved that 7 so hard and kept going back to it again and again.'

Miss Dom now spreads her love for records to her punters, while to some extent mimicking the flexibility of music streaming: 'You can almost shuffle [the records] like playing cards and then see how a set can just magically come together. It's the same songs creating a completely different vibe.'

But if putting your taste and knowledge on public display carries some risk, Nola enjoys the payoff.

'For me, playing vinyl makes me feel empowered, it's a deeply personal experience, and as a woman in what is mostly a male-dominated arena, I find playing to people a good place to stand my ground. Especially if I can pull something special from the crate.' The looks I get sometimes, 'oh, you little blonde chick', and I'll pull out a [killer] 7 ... then it's ‘woah!’.’
