The obliv­i­ously is filled with tal­ented guys and gals, and 2Nite’s fea­ture this week is no dif­fer­ent. Meet Jo­lene St Clair, our sales ad­min­is­tra­tor who just re­cently re­vealed to us her, well, un­usual past time hob­bies. A DJ and a biker chick! We can’t say we were sur­prise though. With a beam­ing per­son­al­ity and a sense of style, which sep­a­rates her from most of our staff, we knew they most be some hid­den tal­ents with her. Well 2Nite got the op­por­tu­nity to find out more this week.

2Nite: What is your stage name

The Dutchess. I de­cided on it based on the his­tory and mean­ing be­hind the name. A Dutchess is some­one, well specif­i­cally a woman, who is able to hold her own, and that’s es­sen­tially me.

2Nite: What made you get into this male dom­i­nated in­dus­try?

I love mu­sic. I've al­ways liked it as an art, and art isn’t gen­der based. So for me it's not about male or fe­male but be­ing able to mix/dj and do it well.

2Nite: Is it hard for fe­male DJs?

It does pose some­what of a chal­lenge in terms of recog­ni­tion but I think by putting in the ef­fort and work­ing hard then my work would speak for it­self.

2Nite: What other hob­bies are you in­volved in?

I also ride. I am a mem­ber of the 758 Sesame Street Bik­ers & Friends. It's a fe­male mo­tor­bike-rid­ing club how­ever we do have some male rid­ers as well.

2Nite: What trills you about rid­ing?

For me it starts off with the sound of that heavy en­gine. Then the look and of course the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of push­ing the lim­its of speed.

2Nite: What type of bikes do you ride?

Su­per­moto Bikes mostly. My fa­vorites are the Suzuki dr-z400, the KTM Duke II and the Honda CRF450.

2Nite: Do you own one? Not as yet. But I am work­ing on it!
