Nicole Paris and Ed Cage: A beatboxing lesson from a father-daughter duo

December 11, 2015 at 10:56AM


Nicole Paris was raised to be a beatboxer — when she was young, her father, Ed Cage, used to beatbox her to sleep at night. Now the duo is known for their beatbox battles and jam sessions, which mix classic rap beats with electronic dance sounds. Prepare yourself for a bit of a hip-hop history lesson, and enjoy the show.

Jason Tom at the Hawaii Children and Youth Day

I performed on October 6, 2013 at the Hawaii State Capitol for the 20th Annual Children and Youth Day. It was a challenging one since there were some sound technicalities and a neighboring event that drowned me out. I could barely hear myself while performing, audience could barely hear me as well, but I went with it nonetheless. Also featured Keanu in action. Here's a video that recently surfaced (mahalo to Natalie):

Shout out to Freelance brand! I was fitted with the Freelance brand Wavy snapback and its Been Wavy shirt combo.

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:/…

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.
Total Focus is @AugieT, one of the funniest men in the world.
Happy Veterans Day! Let us honor our Veterans who served in our United States Armed Forces in Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard not just today, but for all the days throughout our calendar year.

My performance at the Tantra Album Party is dedicated in loving memory of Sandra Li. Sandra, you are greatly missed. I miss you Sandra!
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
