Joe Claussell

Local impresario Joe DiPadova's StraightNoChaser night at The Loft in Tempe has blown up to the point where he's expanding the sophisticated, jazzy lounge night to Los Angeles this spring. Meanwhile, SNC continues to bring in top-tier talent to rock the decks alongside the eclectic roster of local residents. This Friday, February 17, Joe Claussell, proprietor of the Spiritual Life Music and Sacred Rhythm Music record labels, makes his first ever Arizona appearance at SNC. Known for his earthy, organic blends of African, Latin and Brazilian rhythms, Claussell brings soul to the often vapid world of dance music.
