"FUNK WITH FULL POWER!" Tomi Salesvuo East Funk Attack is a new line up founded in 2013. With this energetic band drummer Salesvuo is proud to introduce a funk collection of new youngsters together with monster musicians like Marzi Nyman (gtr). Debyt album "EFA"(Satomusic) release 2014 (Finland). "To play the music with energy and dynamics, to make music that happens here and now, and with musicians without genre frontiers, is one of my foremost missions, challenges and dreams in life! When you do music with a nine-piece orchestra like East Funk Attack, you have a great chance to really lock in the groove and make your moves tight. Playing a steady Funk groove with just one chord and breathing the hypnotic beat with your band mates is an unbelievable feeling! Bands debyt Album "EFA"(Satomusic) we did grab onto something new, with a respect for Funk music history" Tomi Salesvuo LINEAR NOTES: Why do I write these liner notes, a swedish trombone player with little connection to Finland? Simply because I love the music made in my eastern sisterland and I respect the musicians living there. They have their own sound, their own style and they are proud of themselves and what they do. Tomi Salesvuo is no exception to this rule. Being an extraordinary drummer is not enough for him, he wants to expand into writing, arranging and producing and that’s exactly what he has done with this album in a very successful way. Tomi has a sense of melody and groove that is not heard everyday and he manages to combine catchy vocal lines with funky hornlines and his own smoking rythm-keeping, making this album a very fine example of music- not just made in Finland but made for the whole world to hear. Enjoy, I did! NIls Landgren (Singer, Trombonist, Funk-Artist from Sweden)
