Tomi Salesvuo East Funk Attack is a line up founded in 2013. Tomi has proudly introduced a funk collection of new youngsters together with monster musicians like Marzi Nyman and Roope Löflund. Their first record EFA was released in 2014 with the help of crowdfunding project. The ongoing process of recording new music aims for publishing the new album ”Rhythm is Da Thing” in October 2016.
Crowdfunding is a great opportunity to actualize and influence for the listeners what kind of music is published. My own personal experiences of the last crowdfunding project for our EFA album were extremely positive. Not only did we get important fundung through the presale of the record, we got new friends and fans for Tomi Salesvuo East Funk Attack band. I hope that you are taking part in our project also this time.
The purpose of this crowdfunding project is to:
- pay salaries for the musicians for their work in the studio
- buy time for the post production
- buy time for several extra mixing days
- pay for the production of our music video
- fund small PR-campaing for the record release
Funk with full Power!
