I am saddened to hear of the recent closing of Fresh Cafe Kakaako and Fresh Cafe Downtown! The downtown location was where the Honolulu Star-Advertiser interviewed me for a Today cover feature. I've also beatboxed there for First Fridays and other events. I remember it like it was yesterday when I beatboxed at one of the Kakaako location's first hip-hop events Last Call (2009), Freelance Brand's Apex (2010) & Trilogy II (2012), National Dance Week Hawaii All-Style Battle (2011), and Hawaii Slam's First Thursdays Poetry Slam & Open Mic (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015).
Here I am beatboxing for HawaiiSlam's First Thursdays at Fresh Cafe Kakaako:
