Hawaiʻi's Human Beatbox

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
