Bio

DJ Claire has been cultivating her craft and sharing her love of music since she could first press “Record” on her mini boombox, making mix tapes from the radio as a kid. Since 2003, she has been toasting the end of the month with her monthly happy hour gig at the Whistle Stop Bar in San Diego, spinning her signature blend of “right-on music that is simply dynamite.” An avid audiophile and record collector, DJ Claire also can be found bringing the sweet soul, nasty funk and everything in between at The Casbah, Bar Pink, Belly Up and other fine establishments.

DJ Claire has opened for many contemporary soul, funk and hip-hop artists, including Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Aloe Blacc, Charles Bradley & The Menahan Street Band, CeeLo Green, The Budos Band, Lee Fields, and Big Freedia, as well as Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ronnie Spector.

In 2015, DJ Claire received the San Diego Music Award for “Best Club DJ.”
