 Jason Tom Dot Com Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary Jason Tom Waikiki Performance

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Friday, February 2nd, 2018, marked my official website JasonTom.com's 10th anniversary birthday. I wrote it down as a reminder on my notebook that I would do a post to celebrate it. Let's celebrate together JasonTom.com's 10 Year Anniversary and Birthday. I've had JasonTom.com as my domain name off and on for 17 years which matches the same amount of time I've learned to use the Internet, and officially it has been 10 consecutive years that I've not wavered to dedicate my love, passion, effort, and commitment to make it be what it is today. I've poured in and out ounces of energy, time and resources to be steadfast to maintain my official website and blog with quality and consistent content. The Jason Tom official site has gone thro…

We Do Life Together

February 3, 2018 at 11:52PM

We do life together at our Word of Life Men's Life Group.

 
Jesus said, ​"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them (Matthew 18:29 King James Version)."


​My fellowship Life Group brother in faith Nate and I ran into Brian Smith the University of Hawaii at Manoa Football Warrior assistant coach.

First Inaugural Rock The School Bells Hawaii Conference

October 17, 2017 at 12:20PM

The next day after I performed at US Vets at Barber's Point Kapolei with Prisma Dance, I arrived at the First Inaugural Rock The School Bells Hawaii Conference at the University of Hawaii at Manoa Campus. I was invited by g-girl Yoda to co-teach with her the dance and breakdance workshop. I taught students of Dole Middle School, Kalaukaua Middle School and Farrington High School the background and foundation for beatboxing and the funk style dance called popping with the Michael Jackson Billie Jean dance routine that features the side glide and moonwalk also known as the backslide. Here I performed it a cappella with no microphone with the beatboxing that combines the Billie Jean dance. I want to thank B-girl Yoda, the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Rock the Scho…

Moonwalk At Moon Festival on the Chinatown Cultural Plaza Moongate Stage

October 12, 2017 at 12:16PM

I dedicated this set to my father who passed on this Father's Day for the 3rd Annual Moon Festival at the historic Chinatown Cultural Plaza on the legendary Moongate Stage in Downtown Honolulu. I also performed my staple routine of "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson that combines beatboxing, the dance, side glide, and moonwalk or backslide on the Moongate Stage.

Performing police siren sounds and my original "Boots and Cats" beatbox routine.

Her Math Tutor Can Dance

August 26, 2017 at 04:03AM

I want to thank those of you (and you know who you are) that made it to my Uplift opening showcase at Ala Moana Centerstage that also featured one of the new students of the Human Beatbox Academy and dancers of reLITE, Prisma Dance, Playground Dance Studio, and the Kazu Clan. You know I am a child of the 1980's, because I beatbox and moonwalk as though the 1980's were yesterday. My math tutee has a sense of humor in how she shared my video of my Uplift opener at Ala Moana Centerstage and her hashtag read, "my math tutor can dance." What? A mathematician who can beatbox and moonwalk and dance? Get out! That is unheard of, how is that logical? Yes, it is possible.

Harry and Cheryl Salem at Word of Life

May 16, 2016 at 08:02PM


Harry and Cheryl Salem are a powerhouse couple for Jesus, and their testimony of how God can bring victory through adversity is evident in their ministry. At a young age, Cheryl was involved in an accident that nearly took her life and left her crippled. After doctors told her she could never walk again, she defied all the odds and walked down the runway as she was crowned Miss America in 1980. Harry had a burdensome childhood at age 10 after his father passed away; leaving him with the mandate to be the man of the house for his mother and sisters. When both Harry and Cheryl encountered Jesus, their lives were never the same! You will be encouraged in the Word and strengthened in your faith as you hear the heart of God through the ministry and message of Harry and …

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!
