The Not Guilty Band, Soul Acoustics

Originally from the small wine-making town of Tarcal, Hungary, Tomi lived in the capital city Budapest for 10 years before moving to the USA in 2005. He learned to play the guitar from his father, and after years of performing with rock bands, he turned to conservatory-educated jazz guitarist Tamas Mohai as his mentor and guitar teacher. In Minnesota he attended and graduated from MCTC's Sound Arts program and won the Sound Arts Excellence Award. Tomi performed and toured with the Lil' Slim Band , a blues band led by legendary bluesman Magic Slim’s son, and he also played with his own group Groove Steady, and Boogie Wonderland founder Rahj White's group, Retrophonic. Tomi currently plays in Soul Acoustics as well as The Not Guilty Band, a 10-piece funk and R&B group. [+]
