Tomi


   Originally from the small wine-making town of Tarcal, Hungary, Tomi (short for Tamas) lived in the capital city Budapest for 10 years before moving to the USA in 2005. Later he enrolled in MCTC's Sound Arts program, where he graduated with a 4.0 GPA and won the Sound Arts Excellence Award. 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. After moving to Minnesota, Tomi performed and toured with the Lil' Slim Band, a blues band led by legendary bluesman Magic Slim’s son, before forming his own band Goove Steady. Tomi grew up listening to mostly rock music, shifting towards jazz, funk and blues when he was in his twenties. Today all of these styles serve as inspiration when he pens his original tunes. He also played with Boogie Wonderland founder Rahj White in Retrophonic. Although he never purposely tries to imitate Carlos Santana, people often say his soloing style is similar to Carlos's. Tomi currently plays in two bands. One of them is The Not Guilty Band, a 10 piece funk and R&B group and the other one is Soul Acoustics, an acoustic duo with guitarist Rick Figueroa.

“In putting together Retro Phonic, I needed a versatile guitarist who can do it all; holding down rhythm guitar parts while quickly switching to full sounding leads without losing the energy of the song. Of all the guitarists I considered and auditioned, Tamas became number one. He gets frequent and steady compliments from the crowd.”

– Rahj White



Tamas Majoros is first of all a good friend and faithful supporter of music! When it comes to playing, it is simple, right to the point! He brings an energy on stage and solos that are fun and easy on the ears.As a Hungarian he also brings to the table resources that are not always found in American styled guitarists. So if you are looking for a teacher that can bring a fresh feel to your playing, Tamas is your guy!"
