Make Noise

July 15, 2017 at 10:30AM

When we are born into this world, we "Make Noise." We are making it known and it's our statement that, "we are here!" We make a statement with our voice. When we see our favorite music artist, beatboxer and one mouth band, we "Make Noise." When we uncover our purpose for living and pursue our purpose with a passion, we "Make Noise." Our voice and the way we Make Noise can be heard throughout the world in our love, relationships, friendships, loved ones, music, dance, art, creativity, ideas, writing, work, career, projects, interests, hobbies, passion, academics, sports, etc. Pre-order your #JasonTom "Make Noise" charcoal gray shirt, an exclusive collector's item for you and yours. Great for you and as gifts for family and friends. Sizes in youth, adult S, M, L, XL. A…

Flody Mayweather and Conor McGregor World Press Tour Los Angeles

July 12, 2017 at 12:53AM

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor kicked off their World Tour in Los Angeles with this press conference on July 11, 2017 at the Staples Center. What were your thoughts on this first press conference? For me, I felt that Floyd Mayweather served Conor McGregor in my honest feedback. This was quite an entertaining press conference. This will be an exciting fight for fight fans to see on August 26th at the MGM Grand. I know Floyd is a lot older, but I am a firm believer that experience in that boxing ring will aid Floyd. As a boxing and fight fan, I do want to see Floyd put on a boxing clinic on Conor. People say that Floyd have not seen a fighter like Conor, but to me it's the other way around. Conor have not fought a fighter like Floyd. People say Con…

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 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 KCC alumnus. Be…

Bible Shopping at Logos Bookstore

May 13, 2017 at 11:46PM

My Word of Life brother in Christ Jesus and Life Group leader and mentor John Lum on Team Wally told me recently that he wants to purchase a new New King James Version translation of the Holy Bible as his original copy has pages falling apart. Then I said that I will bless him with a new one. We kicked off our day by having breakfast at L&L Hawaiian Barbecue and then we went bible shopping for the NKJV Bible at Logos Bookstore in Kakaako. Then while we waited in line, we met this gentleman in front of us by the name of Kenny and his wife Jackie. When it was Kenny's turn to purchase their items. Kenny took John and I by surprise and he said he will bless us both. Favor! God's favor! So grateful to you Jesus for all you do! Thank you Kenny! Thank you Jesus…

Story on this Gecko, Man

May 8, 2017 at 08:51AM

One of my early comic book character creations of approximately 25 to 27 years, during my second attempt at first grade when I moved to another elementary school and second grade through third grade, is Gecko Man. I drew Gecko Man then as a reflection of who I was as a child though in an adult body with a cape with superhero strength and capabilities like laser shooting powers from my hands with a superhero body spandex suit. Kind of like Spider-Man, Ice Man, Superman, and Batman. This Gecko Man character came to me when I put my hand on a pole and I felt warmth. I thought to myself, hmm, this doesn't feel hard like what a metal pole would feel like. Instead it felt soft and warm. So I looked under my hand was a gecko chilling on the pole even though I touched it…

Iolani School Boy Scouts

April 28, 2017 at 09:59PM


The number one fear in the world? Public speaking. Growing up on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu, I'd shake or freeze up from nervousness and shyness when speaking in front of class among my peers. Made me quite self-conscious. I preferred being in the audience and I feared having the spotlight. Fast forward to today, having performed live beatboxing music and having done public speaking engagements such as the first and second TEDx Talks in Honolulu and other engagements in hip-hop culture classrooms in universities and events through 13 years have compelled me to get out of my comfort zone to develop my current personality and today, I no longer get the jitters unless I stop practicing and training. Earlier tonight, I spoke publicly in front of Hawaii's 4th graders at…

Music Business And Audio Engineering

April 28, 2017 at 11:24AM


I stopped by the Mike Curb College MELE Program offered through Belmont University and University of Hawaii at Honolulu Community College advocated by Hawaii's former 2-term Governor Linda Lingle and Lieutenant Governor Duke Aiona. And while at Honolulu Community College to meet up with my friend early this week I ran into two current MELE Music Business and Audio Engineering students. Long story short, after our formal introduction, they tell me, "get out, you're Jason Tom, our teacher spoke about you this morning and how you're one of the top beatboxers in this world." I said, "wow, really? You mean Eric Lagrimas? He was my former teacher in the Mike Curb MELE Program." They responded, "yes, he covered about hip-hop music and he mentioned your name." Thank you …

My Heroes and Influences

April 21, 2017 at 10:07PM

Many of my heroes and influences are the people I grew up with and some are those I have watched from afar. Many I've met and many I haven't. My heroes include my family, relatives, friends, colleagues, past and presentAcademy beatboxers, people of all walks, my fans, and the community. Here is a list of those you may or may not recognize who I have been inspired by and have been influenced by in one way or another.

  • Maximus Ornelas (Sep 7, 2001 - Feb 26, 2017; age 15)
    I have not met or known of Maximus George Ornelas until today when I stumbled upon his obituary article in the Yakima Herald and I read that he had passed on due to a severe asthma attack and that one of his passions is to beatbox.


I looked if he had a Facebook and discovered he had vide…

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…

Thank You Inspire Youth

April 11, 2017 at 05:05AM

This was lit. I want to personally thank Inspire Youth's Pastor Clint Chinen and his head pastor Mike Kai for having me open for guest Pastor Jedidiah Thurner for Friday Night Flow at Inspire Church Waikele. We had 45 first-time decisions for Jesus Christ and 76 rededications. I've once been there for both Altar calls and I am grateful of what God has called me to do in the works of the ministry with my life and the life of others including the children, youth and young adults who made Friday Night Flow happen. I also want to thank Josh Williams also known as J Wills for beatboxing with me to close Friday Night Flow. And Josiah for beatbox battling me to assist me in setting the tone of Friday Night Flow evening prior to me opening for Jedidiah Thurner in the mai…

Ukulele Beatbox Tutorial

April 11, 2017 at 01:13AM

Jody Kamisato and Jason Tom with this Ukulele Beatbox Collaborative Tutorial. An ukulele is a 4-string instrument that originated in Portugal and it was later introduced to the Hawaiian Islands during the plantation period and the ukuelele was adopted into our Hawaiian Music Culture throughout the Hawaiian Islands. It's an instrument that nearly all residents young and old of the Hawaiian Islands pick up and start playing or have at one point picked up playing and tried it. Beatboxing originates in the 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 even further back to African cultural vocal traditions and languages. Jody and Jason had a great time with this collab…

4th Beatbox Battle World Championship #BBBWC

April 9, 2017 at 02:18AM

Many of you became familiar with the "Jason Tom from Hawaii" Beatbox Battle TV freestyle video (shown below) that recently climbed on the Beatbox Battle Network website video rankings as the Top 2 and Top 3 video respectively in the "freestyle" and "United States" country categories. Beatbox Battle Network is also the non-profit organization that brought us Beatbox Battle Television and it produces the Beatbox Battle World Championship and owns the largest beatboxing multimedia archive.
