Tom Finn is a founding member of the 1960s baroque rock group the Left Banke.[1]

After the Left Banke disbanded, Finn went on to become an engineer at Bell Sound Studios as well as working with jazz drummer Buddy Rich at Rich's night club Buddy's Place as stage manager and MC.

In 1982 Studio 54 owner Steve Rubell convinced Finn to try his hand as a DJ. This led to Finn working at NY clubs such as The Palladium, The Red Zone, and Au Bar. In the 1990s Tom began working as a DJ for private events, resulting in his own company, Topspin Entertainment.

Finn was the DJ for The White House Millennium Gala, hosted by President William Jefferson Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton. In 2006, he appeared in the November issue of Town & Country magazine in a five-page spread called The Party Masters, where he was touted as the top party DJ in the world.[citation needed] Finn was featured in a The New York Times (12/16/06) article "The D.J. Who Moves the Movers and Shakers" depicting him as the top social DJ in the country today.[citation needed]
