Jason Tom Amphitheater for KCC

July 9, 2017 at 11:04PM

Today, I stumbled upon this article "Dream Christmas Wish List for Kapiʻolani Community College" by Chris Takahashi featured on The Kapiʻo News. The Jason Tom Amphitheater made it on his Dream Wish List for University of Hawaiʻi at Kapiʻ​olani (my Alma mater). Unbelievable that It has been over a decade since I have officially graduated from KCC. It was not until today that I found out an amphitheater named after me have been dreamt of and is being pitched. Got to give it up to Chris Takahashi for having dreamt that up. I have to meet this guy one day. A visionary. What an honor it would be for it to come to fruition hey? The Kapiʻ​o News reporter Lexus Yamashiro is currently writing up an upcoming feature on me for The Kapi'o News on my experiences as a…

Hogan Entrepreneur News: Students Speak to Jason Tom

Hogan News: Students Speak to Jason Tom

It was a pleasure to hear from Jason Tom who is truly a passionate musician at heart. He spoke to us about his journey, career, and showed us that passion can take us far in life.

Growing up, one would think you could not make a living from a hobby like beatboxing. Jason proves it is possible. He created his own style of beatboxing, traveled around the world, won poetry slams and other competitions, and is known as one of the top beatboxers in the world. Jason is an excellent example of pursuing your dreams. An advice I took to heart is to "know that with everything you do, there is no accident... everything happens for a reason". Successful individuals are able to learn from their mistakes, do not give up and have goals th…

Recap of what has been going on. Growing up I always loved visuals that told a story, whether it'd be through illustrations, film or photographs. So here are photos courtesy of Joe Marquez (the Smoking Camera):

Global Dance Cafe 6 at Oceans 808 (in preparation for the 2010 PUJA Dance Concert: Love Letters on June 5th & 6th) was a lot of fun.... big ups to Willow Chang for inspiring me to utilize more of my "dance." My hat tips off to the late Michael Jackson, Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire. They're my top song and dance heroes. Here was some preliminary fun I had with a pre-performance photoshoot (more at jasontom.com/photos):

Then came performance time that brought the roof down (more at jasontom.com/photos).

Then I brought up my guest MC artist friend Faioso to p…

Two videos courtesy of Crispee Productions while I was at the 2009 International Secret Angeles Los Angeles (2009 ISA LA) Concert at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse produced by Wong Fu Productions and the Far East Movement. My ISA San Francisco and Los Angeles experiences were memorable for 2009. After the concert I joined the Far East Movement, Wong Fu Productions, Quest Crew, Kevjumba, and the ISA LA crew for dinner.

Here I am performing a freestyle with a couple of crow calls and Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean."

I performed an a cappella and acoustic version of, "Listen Carefully," an original beatbox song I wrote and composed in 2007.

AsianAve.com's Member of the Month!

June 16, 2008 at 03:25PM

Who here remembers AsianAvenue.com? Well, here is some background information before I start my entry, Community Connect (AsianAvenue.com's parent company that also launched BlackPlanet.com, MiGente.com, GLEE.com, and FaithBase.com) closed AsianAvenue.com, and gave birth to AsianAve.com. In other words they subtracted the "nue" from AsianAvenue.com and added a new AsianAve.com with a fresh infrastructure. Still with me here? Some new features that were not in the old site include blogs, unlimited photo uploads, video uploads, groups, style, rate me, music profiles, comments, and more. Old features that remain are chatrooms, forums, news, member find, notes, guestbook, friends list, flirt, MOTD, etc.

Anyway, this year on June 3rd I became AsianAve.com's featured Member…

I first saw Jason Tom perform at a Cultural night event several years ago, at the back-then renowned club "Oceans 808" and was very impressed with his beatboxing skills - with nothing but his own mouth! - and the cool Michael-Jackson-Style dancing he used along with them. Then I met him officially at the Word Of Life Church Honolulu years later, and we've known each other since. Very sweet and professional guy, always with a friendly and positive vibe. Congratulations on your 10th anniversary, Jason! Thank you for using and dedicating your craft to the glory of God and the salvation of His people. Here's to another even more prosperous 10 years! Blessings.

I love 10-year anniversaries! Keep hustling!
