Makana and Jason Tom: amazing turnout!

September 14, 2008 at 09:05AM

This past Art After Dark "Hawai`i Ink" event on August 29th, 2008 at the Honolulu Academy of Arts featured Hawaiian slack key guitar master Makana. This event had an amazing turnout, especially those who came to see Makana, and I rock it out. People stood, and even sat on beach mats layering the wet grass from earlier poured rain just to experience the evening with us on that Central Court stage. MELE were also on hand to document my live moment with Makana as part of a reality series project starring MELE students.

Supporters came out in the bunches, and called out to me as I stood waiting in the wings ready to perform. That night also featured a stellar line up of Manu, The Resophonics, Kealoha, Indai, Halau Mohala `Ilima, and DJ Hi-Lo.

The theme is "Hawaii Ink" for Art After Dark, and the headline act is Hawaiian slack key guitar master Makana. I will be joining Makana, and his band for this not to be missed concert. Makana was impressed by my most recent First Thursdays Hawaiʻi Slam performance at the Hawaiian Hut with Hawaiian Ryan, and DJ Azia (tours with Tempo Valley).

Congratulations, my friend! I'm so happy for you, Jason!!! How awesome and totally wicked would that be! I know you've worked really hard and is always inspiring people all over the world. You do you and keep up the great work. Dreams do come true and good things do happen to good people!

Aye that's lit. Keep doing what you're doing and you're putting a positive influence to a lot people

Jason Tom is a one-of-a-kind individual. During my sophomore year of high school, I remember watching him beatbox for our school for just a few minutes and was blown away by the amount of talent he was able to showcase in just that limited amount of time. Fast forward about three years or so, I was looking to write a feature story of a KCC alumnus/alumna for the KCC newspaper and came across Jason's name online. He was quick to respond to me when I reached out to him, and he was very interested in being featured. I got the chance to interview him, and couldn't believe the stories that he had to share with me. Over a two hour period, I was able to learn a lot about who Jason was, and he has proved to me that anybody can make it in life when even in the toughest situations. His humor and charismatic nature really bring his personality to life, and I blows me away to know that he has a positive impact on the community not only through his beatboxing but also through his words. Jason is inspiring, and I'm glad that I got to chat with him and share his story with many others and beyond.

Cool, you will become more popular.

That would be really cool to see that! It would be an honor!

Happy to say that the story of Jason has been published and can be read on our Kapi'o website at https://www.kapionews.com/index.php/2017/07/19/kcc-alumnus-inspires-community-through-beatboxing-motivational-speaking/. Thanks again Jason for allowing me the opportunity to share your story with many others, and for shedding light on our growing student newspaper! Check out kapionews.com for more!

This is awesome! Well-deserved for bradda Jason! This guy knows how to work hard, puts himself out there and performs. He also knows how to give back

Cool, you would become more popular.
