The DomNicks combine the Perth garage rock/power pop legend Dom Mariani (The Stems, DM3), with the British punk attack of Nick Sheppard (The Clash, The Cortina’s).

Formed in 2007 the band was a meeting of musical minds for Dom and Nick who teamed up with Howard Shawcross vintage bass man (The Elks, Dave Warner) and Marz Frisina on the drums.

This hang loose combo plays a mix of Dom and Nick originals with a nice spread of 60's and 70's garage soul classics. One part Memphis stew, one part Stones and Faces inspired and one part Aussie garage guitar rock this band of seasoned players punches well above its collective musical weight.

In 2009 they released the EP Hey Rock ‘N’ Roller, the band’s first assault on CD through Off the Hip Records. Consisting of five Nick and two Dom penned tracks Hey Rock ‘N Roller was recorded in three studios (Kingdom, Loop and Forrest) over the space of ten months and was mixed by the formidable duo of Rob ‘Radio Birdman’ Younger and Wayne Connolly (producer of You Am I and The Vines).

Bass and Vocals, Howard Shawcross, said as a former resident of Subiaco he looks forward to returning to the venue where as a music and theatre lover he has enjoyed so many rewarding experiences over the years.

Since 2007 The DomNicks have performed at Perth’s top venues including Mojos, Clancys, The Flying Scotsman, The Mustang Bar, Fremantle Arts Centre, Devilles Pad and regularly at Settler’s Tavern in Margaret River. They have also toured with Aussie rock legends The Hoodoo Gurus and have just returned from a lightning campaign to Melbourne and Sydney performing at the Joe Strummer Tribute gig Revolution Rock.

Tickets are free and are available on the day from 1.15pm, with concerts starting at 2pm and finishing at 3.30pm, including a short break to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine from the Subiaco Arts Centre bar.
