Makana and Jason Tom: amazing turnout!

September 14, 2008 at 09:05AM

This past Art After Dark "Hawai`i Ink" event on August 29th, 2008 at the Honolulu Academy of Arts featured Hawaiian slack key guitar master Makana. This event had an amazing turnout, especially those who came to see Makana, and I rock it out. People stood, and even sat on beach mats layering the wet grass from earlier poured rain just to experience the evening with us on that Central Court stage. MELE were also on hand to document my live moment with Makana as part of a reality series project starring MELE students.

Supporters came out in the bunches, and called out to me as I stood waiting in the wings ready to perform. That night also featured a stellar line up of Manu, The Resophonics, Kealoha, Indai, Halau Mohala `Ilima, and DJ Hi-Lo.

Art After Dark at the Honolulu Academy of Arts: Makana and Jason Tom unite!!

August 21, 2008 at 04:46PM

Upcoming event Art After Dark on August 29th at the Honolulu Academy of Arts from 6:00PM to 9:00PM. It's free to academy members (I'm not a member), $10 to non-members (refunded if you join that night). I encourage all of my supporters who has or has never seen me perform live before to come. Yes I will perform as a featured guest, but there's more!

The theme is "Hawaii Ink" for Art After Dark, and the headline act is Hawaiian slack key guitar master Makana. I will be joining Makana, and his band for this not to be missed concert. Makana was impressed by my most recent First Thursdays Hawaiʻi Slam performance at the Hawaiian Hut with Hawaiian Ryan, and DJ Azia (tours with Tempo Valley).

My friend who recently came back to Hawaiʻi from New York for a short stay said th…

I wish I could at two places at the same time, don't you????

August 5, 2008 at 09:41AM

Mark your calendars, this Wednesday, August 27th I will MC and perform at the MELE outdoor "Back to School" concert from 11:00AM to 1:00PM at Honolulu Community College. Also featured will be local ska punk reggae rock band Pimpbot, and more. Admission is free, and all ages welcomed!

Also, I've recently been offered through e-mail to perform three five-minute routines on the same date between 11:30AM to 12:30PM at another location for a promotional event, but can't do it since it falls within the same time frame. I'll be able to do the HCC event though.

It is moments like this that I wish I could be at two places at the same time. I really do. This isn't the first time I've felt this way either. If only I could teleport or travel through time.

Anyway, on another note Fi…

Rocket scientists discover Pimpbox???

July 20, 2008 at 06:03AM

Rocket scientists recently found out that if you were to mix Jason Tom beatboxing with Pimpbot, then the "t" (from "bot") tilts to the left, and you get Pimpbox. Okay, that ain't true about the rocket science part, but you should get the idea at the very least.

How is your summer?

I'm on summer vacation now that school is out, and I saw the Incredible Hulk with Ellice this past Friday. We ate at Islands Fine Burgers and Drinks prior to that and here is my endorsement:

At the theatre a McDonalds commercial played prior to the movie previews that featured two beatboxers. One of which was Bay Area beatboxer Eachbox who co-produces the Vowel Movement, but I'm not sure who the other beatboxer is. If anyone know, let me know too! On another related note I saw this from surfing a about the Vowel Movement:

The 2008 West Coast Beat Boxing Championships
the 2008 West Coast Open Beatboxing Championships

Presented by The Vowel Movement and Speak the Music

You don't want to miss this head-to-head competition, where the best beat bo…
