February 12, 2011 at 05:56AM

Here is reminiscing one of my favorite local newspapers the Honolulu Advertiser (now known as the Star Advertiser). Here was a video shoot taken in a freight elevator for an exclusive TGIF Metromix cover feature. It was a ton of fun with no script and one take.

BeatboxSpot Showcase

January 27, 2011 at 07:56PM


So today I found out that BeatboxSpot.com is featuring me as their first showcased artist. Props to Philip Rinaldi! Wow, it's gnarly to play all of the videos on the page simultaneously at the same time. Surreal. This made my day, because to this day I encounter set backs and ridiculous politics that could drive a person insane in the membrane. Probably more now than ever, but all is fine as long as I keep my sights set on God. But still, no one deserves that kind of politics. Be sure to friend and subscribe to my YouTube Channel for updates: http://www.youtube.com/jasontomhnl

HAT Party

November 15, 2010 at 05:05PM

A while back Hawaii-Aloha Travel's Bruce Fisher, whom I first met during the TEDx Honolulu 2009 conference and reunited with at the [Re]Think: Hawaii 2010 conference, invited me to open for Makana at HAT's Annual Appreciation Party. I was impressed about the thought put into how they made the program for guests look like airplane travel tickets. I'm a dork for that, because I love travel. After my solo set... Makana and I reunited on stage closer to the end of his set with Gerardo Velez (percussionist for Jimi Hendrix & more). It was truly an honor to be part of  HAT's Party filled with fun as well as laughter and my overall impression is that Bruce is an amazing boss for his HAT agents. I mentioned to Bruce that I experienced the best crowd for my "Boom Clap Boom B…

My impromptu performance with B.Cap and Santino at the Dragon Upstairs with the Jazz Minds family. My performance was dedicated to Santino (one of my vocal heroes who I met at the Dragon Upstairs two years prior). I will miss you Santino! Thank you so much for all that you've mentored me about Santino! Your vocal skills blow my mind.

This young girl said I am her favorite performer at the Hawaii Convention Center for the International Hawaii Chinese Cultural Arts Festival. I also teamed up to co-host and tech the event. Honored, humbled and grateful to be part of this wonderful opportunity. Thank you to all who came.

Happy birthday to you Jake Shimabukuro. Can you believe it Jake? That exactly 11 years ago on your birthday, we did this performance pictured here together that today I still run into people who were there that night that speak about it. In fact, last night I ran into someone who just talked to me about our performance. It is regarded as a fan favorite for sure. Earlier this year, I reunited with another fan of ours who also caught this performance of ours 11 years ago. Can you believe it? Incredible right? When the season is right, let's do another in the near Jake. Enjoy your show tonight as you are with my buddy Jody Kamisato, and Honoka and Azita. Keep up the great work Jake! Love you brother!

To be intentional with Father God is to be intimate with God the Son and to be counseled by God the Holy Spirit. When I decided to get intentional with Jesus is when the devil's plan of destruction over my life failed. Had the devil's plans succeeded last year I would not be alive to write my first faith blog post today, literally, and this past October 24th marked my ninth year intentional walk with Father God. The devil flunked the course when Jesus rescued and avenged me. Jesus is our avenger. Jesus is our way maker. We can overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the Word of our testimony: http://jasontom.com/entries/faith/nine-year-walk-with-god
