Rytmiaalto #7: Masters of Funk

It's a wink of an eye when we bring "Masters of Funk" on stage, but when you will hear Eternal Erection and Nuts & Bolts play LIVE joined by djs Anna S, Elukka and Magic Sam you should know that we mean funky business. A clasic line-up with an emerging funk band on mbar summer terrace - bring your dancing shoes!

Eternal Erection is an energetic Finnish funk group of 7 musicians that has dazzled audiences across the planet. At the moment Eternal Erection has released five albums, Family Tree (1998), No Funk About It (2000), On Top (2005), On Tour- livelevyn (2006) ja Angels and Bandits (2009), which have been released globally. The group has also performed many international gigs, ranging from Cuba to the busy facade of Kiasma, and sharing the stage with George Clinton P-Funk All Stars.

Ever since 2007 the Nuts & Bolts have been getting funky all over the world, and now they're here with their friends to take the party to the next level! The Nuts & Bolts is Jan Wälchli on trumpet and vocals, Ben Rogers on guitar, Ilmari Aitoaho on keys, Urho Särkkä on bass and vocals, Joonas Kaikko on drums and vocals.

Magic Sam is best known as the founder of Funky Elephant Festival and notorious of having oranized and playd at dozens of clubs. He has been one of the driving forces in creating dj- and music culture in Helsinki. And, he is a great funk dj!

Anna S is a versatile dj, who creates a soundscape connecting rhythms and grooves around the globe.

Passionate funk vinyl collector, dj Elukka covers a wide landscape of grooves, from jazzy organ to slick 80's beats, with an odd oddity thrown in to keep things interesting.
