Tony DiPofi - Lead & Backing Vocals, Harp

Tony was born and raised in an Italian neighborhood in Chicago where everyone was family. He cut his teeth on a mix of Italian singers like Vic Damone and Louis Prima, but was heavily influenced by Chicago Blues Singers and various harp players, like Tony "little sun" Glover and Magic Dick. You can also hear the influences of Tom Waits and Don Van Vliet.

The result is the fusion of styles he has now made his own, both in his singing and his blues harp playing. His talent is anchored in his versatility. His ability and wide range of vocal styles allows him to do anything from old standards to blues/rock.

Tony is also an accomplished lyricist and original song writer who enjoys creating just as much as performing. First playing in Chicago with The Paul Jones Blues Band, he now resides in Wisconsin, where he has played with Night Train, and has currently found a home with The Raindogs and Electric Blue.
