Happy Birthday Jake Shimabukuro

November 4, 2017 at 04:51AM

Happy Birthday Jake Shimabukuro! Did you know, exactly 11 years ago on his birthday, Jake Shimabukuro and I first performed together? It is considered a fan favorite and it is still talked about today. I still run into people who were at that show 11 years ago. In fact I ran into our old friend Matt last night and Matt talked with me about my performance with Jake 11 years ago. Also, did you know, Jake Shimabukuro was also the very first musician I've ever collaborated live with. Was I nervous then? Heaven's yes. Jake has always been one of my heroes before I jumped into the scene and he still is today. Earlier this year I gave Jake a surprise visit at Iolani School. People buzzed about our photo taken together and our fans want us to do something together. How a…

We've heard of job hunting, but what about amp speaker hunting? As mentioned in my new blog series called "The Bachelorette" I love to shop and I love to shop for music equipment, microphones, microphone cords, headphones, amplifiers, and speakers. Did you know that finding the right speaker and amplifier is one of the most frequently asked question by beatboxers from around the world? For those who don't know what beatboxing is and what a beatboxer does, a beatboxer is a person who vocally sings rhythm, melody and musical instruments purely with his or her human voice. Yes, we are also known as vocal percussionists and our musical art form has…

Ukulele And Beatbox Lesson

April 11, 2017 at 01:13AM

Jody Kamisato and Jason Tom with this Ukulele Beatbox Collaborative Tutorial. An ukulele which means "jumping flea" is a 4-string instrument and is an adaptation of the Portuguese machete. The ukulele was invented in our Hawaiian islands during the plantation period and was introduced into our Hawaiian music culture throughout our Hawaiian islands that eventually spread throughout the United States of America and the world. It's an instrument that nearly all residents young and old of our Hawaiian islands pick up and start playing and have probably at one point picked up playing and tried it. Beatboxing originates in a cappella vocal art tradition from the musical stylings and genre of jazz with scat singing and the urban hip-hop music culture and can be traced e…
