3 Back To Back and Honolulu Twestival

March 23, 2011 at 06:53PM

This past Saturday, March 19th, I beatboxed at 3 shows at 3 different locations. I was featured in the Honolulu Magazine, Honolulu Star Advertiser, Honolulu Pulse, Honolulu Weekly, Nonstop Honolulu, Midweek, HNLnow and more!

My evening started out with my first show which was a Japan Benefit Concert at Oceans 808, located in Restaurant Row. Tracy Chan of Nonstop Honolulu was on hand to do photo coverage of the event.


Then I hopped on over back to Chinatown for the film competition event Showdown In Chinatown at Next Door. Hawaiian Ryan of 102.7 Da Bomb was on hand to do photo coverage of the event.



Then I closed my night off by opening up for Family Dinner's "Now Serving" Album Release Party at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Ward Warehouse. "Now Serving" on iTunes http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/now-serving/id427673857

Congratulations, my friend! I'm so happy for you, Jason!!! How awesome and totally wicked would that be! I know you've worked really hard and is always inspiring people all over the world. You do you and keep up the great work. Dreams do come true and good things do happen to good people!

Now wouldn't that be something! Your art has definitely touched lives. I look forward to the day it gets built. I'll be excited for that sam choy aquatic center also :D

Aye that's lit. Keep doing what you're doing and you're putting a positive influence to a lot people

Jason Tom is a one-of-a-kind individual. During my sophomore year of high school, I remember watching him beatbox for our school for just a few minutes and was blown away by the amount of talent he was able to showcase in just that limited amount of time. Fast forward about three years or so, I was looking to write a feature story of a KCC alumnus/alumna for the KCC newspaper and came across Jason's name online. He was quick to respond to me when I reached out to him, and he was very interested in being featured. I got the chance to interview him, and couldn't believe the stories that he had to share with me. Over a two hour period, I was able to learn a lot about who Jason was, and he has proved to me that anybody can make it in life when even in the toughest situations. His humor and charismatic nature really bring his personality to life, and I blows me away to know that he has a positive impact on the community not only through his beatboxing but also through his words. Jason is inspiring, and I'm glad that I got to chat with him and share his story with many others and beyond.

Cool, you will become more popular.

That would be really cool to see that! It would be an honor!

Happy to say that the story of Jason has been published and can be read on our Kapi'o website at https://www.kapionews.com/index.php/2017/07/19/kcc-alumnus-inspires-community-through-beatboxing-motivational-speaking/. Thanks again Jason for allowing me the opportunity to share your story with many others, and for shedding light on our growing student newspaper! Check out kapionews.com for more!

This is awesome! Well-deserved for bradda Jason! This guy knows how to work hard, puts himself out there and performs. He also knows how to give back

Cool, you would become more popular.
