The Tomi Salesvuo East Funk Attack – Surreal Tour 2020!
“Funk with Full Power”

Helsinki based funk band East Funk Attack was founded in 2013. The band, often called “thickly dynamic invasion of funk”, has released two studio albums and one studio live EP. The powerhouse of a group is now releasing new music and music videos from the upcoming third studio album. First two singles “I Feel Surreal” and “Why Don´t You Do It?” saw the daylight in 2019 and more new music is coming out in 2020 while the band is touring again in Germany and Finland. The East Funk Attack band is a sextet led by a drummer and composer Tomi Salesvuo and features the charming singer Taru Ratilainen. Salesvuo leads an amazing line-up of Finnish musicians, brought in from the front line of making sure the funk keeps on thumping!

“During the years, I’ve had an a vision in mind about a group, functioning as a melting pot for my idea of playing rhythmic music. I’m presenting my vision of the combinations of the relentless joy of playing music and catchy melodies. Essentially, we’re packaging the hypnotic rhythm of music with jazz improvisation, telling our life stories of growth as humans. I have the feeling that this surreal vision is now reality and the potential for our growth as a group feels limitless. I can´t wait to share the new music with our listeners!” says Salesvuo, in an inspired mood.


2020 kommt die Tomi Salesvuo East Funk Attack auf ihrer “Surreal! Tour 2020” auch wieder nach Deutschland. Die Finnische Funkband, die oft als “thickly dynamic invasion of funk” bezeichnet wird, sich selber aber gerne auch mit der Finnischen Eishockeynationalmannschaft (Achtung: Weltmeister) oder einer der zahlreichen Finnischen Metalbands vergleicht, hat dabei unter anderem jede Menge neue Musik im Gepäck.
Nach zwei erfolgreichen Studio-Alben, sowie einer Live-EP, folgt in 2020 ein weiteres Album. Während die erste Single daraus (“I Feel Surreal”) bereits erschien, folgt pünktlich zur Tour mehr Musik, mehr Videos, mehr Power, mehr Funk, welcher einen garantiert in Bewegung und Ekstase versetzen wird.
