Thomas Joseph Finn (1948 – June 27, 2020) was an American musician and DJ. He was a founding member of the 1960s baroque pop group The Left Banke, on bass and vocals.
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 Finn 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 Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton. In 2006, he appeared in the November issue of Town & Country magazine in a five-page spread called "The Party Masters". Finn was featured in a The New York Times (December 16, 2006) article "The D.J. Who Moves the Movers and Shakers".
Finn died on June 27, 2020, after a period of ill health.
