Tom San Filippo - Lead Guitar, Vocals

Tom is an accomplished guitarist, singer and songwriter. Being influenced by many genres of music over the years, he has been especially in tune with the music of the Grateful Dead.

Having been exposed to the scene at an early age, Tom has developed an innate ability to faithfully recapture the essence of Garcia's sound and style.  As a member of HALFSTEP, Tom is striving to not only give audiences an accurate homage, but to tap into the true vibe that the Dead have always been known for.
