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 …

Creation at Paliku Theatre

I am excited to be able to share that I will be beatboxing in a collaborative effort for Creation, a production presented by Prisma Dance, for eight shows at the Paliku Theatre at Windward Community College this November 25th-27th and December 2nd-3rd. Creation is a premier production that presents the beauty of God’s creation through an artistic collaboration of dance, music, acrobatics, art, and poetry.

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 …

My Female Beatbox Mentor

April 23, 2016 at 05:34PM

Elaine FinnellElaine Finnell (formerly known as Elaine Chao) is one of my earliest beatbox mentors. It's due to her inspirational Apollo live televised performance in 2003 that sparked an interest for me to pursue beatboxing professionally. Her snares, her mouth drumming, her scratches, crowd interaction is so on point!!! She was a co-worker of one of my first-cousins from the Bay Area.... who I am very close with. Elaine and I exchanged e-mails and she gave me wisdom and advice that it stuck with me forever. I apply everything she shared with me. It it weren't for her.. I wouldn't be the beatboxer that I am today. Thank you Elaine!!! You're the greatest female human beatbox of all time in my book!

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…

I like all of them, but as a personal brand the one done by the media company with the outline and Hawaii's Human Beatbox is my favorite. Tom Thum is so dope in everything he does but in this instance, as far as a brand logo, I like the last one on the post. Maybe mess with colors etc. have an aloha version maybe.

Love the Ton Thum logo...Dope!
