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,Academy, people of all walks, 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 and I read that he had passed on due to a severe asthma attack and that one of his passions was to beatbox.


I looked if he had a Facebook and discovered he had videos uploaded of him beatboxing and I watched them.. I can t…

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.

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.

Jason Tom featured on Beatbox Battle TV

Jason Tom featured on Beatbox Battle TV:

Wonderful news! I browsed the Beatbox Battle Network website to discover that the "Jason Tom from Hawaii" Beatbox Battle TV video is among one of its top ranked videos in two of the categories it is listed in. On the website my video ranks as the Top 5 Beatbox Battle video in the "United States" country category among heroes and living legends Rahzel, Michael Winslow and Bobby McFerrin. I've had the humbling honor and experience of meeting and chopping it up with both Michael Winslow and Rahzel. How about that? I've also worked with Michael Winslow more than once, almost every beatboxer's dream come true. In the the "freestyle" category my Beatbox Battle video is the Top 4 video among my colleagues Tom Thum, Alem and Napom. I can respect that. I've collaborated live with Tom Thum and met Napom.

I am grateful of the support…

​My actress colleague called me on a moment's notice on this Hollywood Blockbusters Open Casting Call for North Shore starring Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy. Also rumored for the Universal Studios movie film franchise, some are guessing it's Jurassic Park though it's not at all confirmed. Khon 2 News happened to do coverage on this and yours truly (Jason Tom) appear in two segments... first one I am beatboxing and the other part (inaudible) I make up an impromptu dialogue playing to the camera. Good times! I've been told I would get a call back. C'mon somebody!

Rahzel
Known as the Godfather of Noyze, two-time Grammy Award-winning vocal percussionist, Rahzel, has mastered, then redefined the art of beatboxing, emerging as a true virtuoso in this quintessential musical art form. Rahzel doesn’t play musical instruments – he is the instrument. His singular ability to re-create full songs without instrumentation, sing a chorus, and provide the musical melody simultaneously, all while providing a plethora of sound effects on a whim, creates an inimitable visual and sound experience. Rahzel is most popularly known as member emeritus of hip hop’s cutting edge band, The Roots, and has lent his vocal talents to musical artists of all genres. His work has touched audiences in over 350 cities, across 40 countries. He …

The worlds #1 beatboxer!

A super energetic performer and entertainer.

Though I've never met him, he appears to be a holistic individual who emphasizes on being healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. I believe this is what has driven him to achieve his goals and kept him running the race :)

Upbeat, both in personality and in art. A connecting force in the community and music circles. Fresh energy in the international beatboxing realm. Innovative niche-maker in Hawaiian entertainment. Christ-follower. Someone I have known for years and am glad to call friend. That's Jason Tom to me.

Jason Tom is living proof that dreams come true if you work for it! He is a mentor, an inspiration, and continues to be humble through all his achievements. He is a friend to all!

Some people tell you about their dreams. Jason Tom actively pursues it every day.

Jason (or “Spidermon” as I used to call him in Highschool) can be perceived as a bit shy on the surface. He is still the same kind and genuine person as before except now more well-known. He is ready to bust out his beatboxing talent anytime and anywhere and share his passion with anyone willingly to learn and listen.

He exudes a special type of charisma that you can’t help but to feel inspired in his presence. Because you can see the overflowing passion in his eyes while it also tugs at your soul. I know he attributes much of his success and opportunities to GOD, but he is a super hard worker who is constantly working to improve his craft and himself. Because he never settles for just good enough.

The most important thing (I believe), is that he has not forgotten he is human-- who lives and hurts just like the rest of us. But he is able to turn the negatives and use it as incentives for positive development.

If you ever have doubts in yourself, Jason is the living proof that anything is possible.

Jason Tom is my very talented friend...in my eyes and experience he is one of the world's best beat box entertainer and a master at his talent in rythms and beats and tones...very first time I saw and met him a few years ago at a event in Aloha Tower Honolulu, when i heard him I knew then he would be as good as he wants to be...keep it up my friend
Rolando Sanchez

Jason is very talented. He can sing, beatbox and draw!

Jason Tom is a pioneer of the art of human beatbox in Hawai. Artist, Educator, Creative Entrepeneur.

Jason is an amazing beatboxer who captures his audience with his talented array of beats. His desire is not to keep his talent, yet to inspire others to grow their ability to stardom. Generously gives his time and talents to delivery a positive message while he was volunteering for MUSIC WITH A MESSAGE for almost a decade reaching over 10,000 to 20,000 students each year high and middle schools.

Jason Tom is the local prodigy to rise from this little island called Hawaii to become a professional rapper and make it big. But not only that he is very kind and holy and praises Our holy father named Jesus

He is a very friendly and humble guy. He always convinced people to follow their dreams no matter how big or small their dreams are. Since I first saw him in 2006 , he has been my motivation to follow my dreams.

Jason Tom truely is a human beat box. Full of inspired talent in the realm of interpreted beats and sounds, he captivates audiences with his enthusiasm and love for beat boxing and brings people together from all walks of life to share his unique talent and skills in the art. Inspiring people to venture outside of thier comfort zone and to reach for the stars, Jason Tom encourages others to follow thier heart and passions, whatever it may be, in alignment with positivity.

Jason Tom is an aural shaman. In a band, nothing is more important than the rhythm, kept in alignment by the bass or drums. Jason Tom provides that in spades, grounding you in an immaculate surreal soundscape, and plays a perfect host as he establishes the background before he starts to slant the narrative via classy changes until you realize you've been led into a wormhole and have come out of it with extra Hip Hop genotypes that end up becoming phenotypical as you exude a little more street out of your pores as collateral damage from the Jason tom experience, which is what you wanted all along but never realized you did:)

Jason Tom is a professional beat boxer
And also a big inspiration to the youth of Hawaii and many other places
I've talked to him personally and I know that he's a very good person and he follows his dreams
He's full of motivation talent and love for music!
