Thank You Hawaii Baptist Academy

June 30, 2017 at 01:40AM

Thank you Hawaii Baptist Academy for helping me to kick-off the Perfect Father Tour in memory of my father, who passed away on this Father's Day. I had a great time providing live beatbox entertainment, an inspirational speech, beatbox workshop, and a Q&A session for their Gifted by One Assembly.

​I want to thank HBA for inviting me to perform at this assembly. I had a wonderful blast to deliver HBA's best summer yet.

Legend of Zelda Story at Hot Topic

April 15, 2017 at 01:22PM

Two years ago I met this trio Jennifer, Jeffrey and Charley at the Legend of Zelda section of the Ala Moana Center's Hot Topic store and one of them recognized me from one of my past performances at a hip-hop jam. I shared with them I was shopping for Legend of Zelda gear as I am about to prepare for my friend's son's 1st Birthday Party and the party theme is the Legend of Zelda. Then last year, Charley and Jennifer as well as the Kaimuki High School Band supported and voted for me in the NextNext Hawaii Music Competition and Charity Event where the proceeds from their votes went to the charity of my choice, the Ronald McDonald House Hawaii. Jennifer also shared with me that she was assisted by the Ronald McDonald House Charity and this meant so much to her a…

Ukulele And Beatbox Lesson

April 11, 2017 at 01:13AM

Jody Kamisato and Jason Tom with this Ukulele Beatbox Collaborative Tutorial. An ukulele which means "jumping flea" is a 4-string instrument and is an adaptation of the Portuguese machete. The ukulele was invented in our Hawaiian islands during the plantation period and was introduced into our Hawaiian music culture throughout our Hawaiian islands that eventually spread throughout the United States of America and the world. It's an instrument that nearly all residents young and old of our Hawaiian islands pick up and start playing and have probably at one point picked up playing and tried it. Beatboxing originates in a cappella vocal art tradition from the musical stylings and genre of jazz with scat singing and the urban hip-hop music culture and can be traced e…

Freelance Fam and Tom Thum

February 8, 2016 at 08:51AM

Spent quality time and enjoyed a meal together with the Freelance Fam Duke and Kiki King! We've believed in each other since the first time we met and have really grown together. We went through so much together, and we're a team! Words alone cannot express my level of gratitude for all the years of growing with the Freelance Fam!




I also received these "Jason Tom" handstyles by Tom Thum, fellow TEDx Talk beatboxer alumni. Not only is Tom Thum a world class beatboxer, but he also has talent in art and handstyles, bombing, and he was also a b-boy. My former beatbox students look up to him. I have tremendous respect for Tom Thum... I first took notice of him at the 1st Beatbox Battle World Championship in 2005... he was the first World Beatbox Tag Team Cha…

Yahoo News

January 1, 2016 at 01:48PM

I just learned that Yahoo News archived two videos of my KITV Morning News appearance. Yes, there's a band-aid on my left cheek and no, it's not an attempt of my Nelly look, but it was to cover up my allergic reaction to an insect bite. I felt very self-conscious with the band-aid on.

Rhythm And Moves

Featured in the Star Advertiser Today Section, "Rhythm And Moves."


Jason Tom says beatboxing improves his cardio, lungs and strength. “When I beatbox I’m using my whole entire body. … It can be an interesting way to train.”

For Chinatown’s Jason Tom, beatboxing is a whole-body workout
By Nina Wu


Ask Jason Tom what he does for a workout and it’s not your typical routine of running or weightlifting.

Tom, 32, is a professional beatboxer. He already has a thin frame, but he swears the beatboxing — a form of vocal percussion — works his core and keeps him toned throughout the year.

“If I were to break it down, singing uses the diaphragm,” said Tom. “So when I practice, I’m taking deep breaths with my diaphragm, and whe…

Jason Tom at the Hawaii Children and Youth Day

I performed on October 6, 2013 at the Hawaii State Capitol for the 20th Annual Children and Youth Day. It was a challenging one since there were some sound technicalities and a neighboring event that drowned me out. I could barely hear myself while performing, audience could barely hear me as well, but I went with it nonetheless. Also featured Keanu in action. Here's a video that recently surfaced (mahalo to Natalie):

Shout out to Freelance brand! I was fitted with the Freelance brand Wavy snapback and its Been Wavy shirt combo.

Jason Tom "Love Letters"

In 2004, Hawaii's human beatbox Jason Tom started a beatbox performance ministry. Before First Fridays Hawaii (the underground art and music scene in Chinatown Honolulu) existed and back when First Thursdays HawaiiSlam was perhaps the most popular event in Chinatown at the time (Studio1 and pre-Fresh Café days).

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!
