Born in Italy, but raised in Alexandria Va, Tom Saputo started playing music at age 5. By age 8, he was playing piano, guitar, drums and bass. Singing came later at age 16. Tom started writing and recording music as a teenager as well. He was always fascinated by small tape recorders and mesmerized by records. Musical instruments and tape recorders were his coveted possessions.
Tom started playing in local bands at age 8 playing the hits of the 60's. Teen dances and outside parties is where it all started. But Tom considers his first professional job at a Jolly Ox in Alexandria Va. June of 1972. He then ( with his brother John and best friend Bobby) started circulating the restaurants at the time.
