DJ Sal Valentine
7pm - 10pm / Free
The best dressed chicken in town. His mother called him Ivan, so Scott Walker woulda said, but we call him Sal Valentine. Funk, party-time songs, and sexy jazzy bits are his specialty.
Wednesday 27th June
DJs Amy Pennington
7pm - 11pm / Free
Fresh home from clocking Sweden’s music scene, acing the bonus round and returning home with virtual arms-full of delicious music perfect for a crisp Wednesday evening, Amy is making her Golden Dawn debut.
Thursday 28th June
Yam Jams DJs
7pm - 2am / Free
Our favourite trio of scamps, back like clockwork for another round of soul, funk, jazzy jazz, hip-hop, rock’n’roll, and whatever other sweeping genres I’ve forgotten to mention.
Friday 29th June
DJs Johnny Baker & Alan Perrott
7pm - 2am / Free
Two men with record collections so utterly impressive they make Real Groovy’s best racks look like Salvation Army seconds. Garage-psych-exotica-soul-voodoo-mush-rock’n’roll-goo!
Saturday 30th June
Tono & The Finance Company with Brown (live) & guest DJs
8pm - 2am / $5
Tono’s album “Up Here For Dancing” is one of our favourite releases of the year. Fresh from supporting Beirut (at their request), Tono & his merry Finance Company are returning to the Dawn to grace us with some seriously smart melody. Special guest DJs + Dunedin’s live pop trio Brown!
Sunday 1st July
DJ English Jake
5pm - 10pm / Free
English Jake is back at the helm to share some more of his vinyl wonders with us! With one foot firmly planted in “proper” old jazz tunes, and the other kicking about in an R&B puddle, you can be sure whatever Jake has in store, it’s going to be tasty!
