HI*Sessions Photo Tease

October 18, 2017 at 09:49AM

I recently filmed on location my HI*Sessions episodes at the Koʻolau Ballrooms & Conference Center in Kaneohe. There are those of you who messaged, e-mailed and inbox'd to ask when my HI*Sessions will launch. It was a pleasure working with the HI*Sessions Team and my episodes are in post production. I am stoked that you guys expressed how you can't wait. I am with you on that. I followed up with HI*Sessions and I learned that my episodes could launch December of this year or January of next year. Stay plugged in to my blog and newsletter to stay up to date with me. I want to thank Jon Yamasato, Dave Kusumoto, Shayna Kusumoto, Kawika Lopez, Darin Leong, Lance Lopes, Vance Morimoto, Justin, Dayton Watanabe, Taimane Gardner, Jazzy Jazz, Carissa "Bubbles" Kano, the …

Her Math Tutor Can Dance

August 26, 2017 at 04:03AM

I want to thank those of you (and you know who you are) that made it to my Uplift opening showcase at Ala Moana Centerstage that also featured one of the new students of the Human Beatbox Academy and dancers of reLITE, Prisma Dance, Playground Dance Studio, and the Kazu Clan. You know I am a child of the 1980's, because I beatbox and moonwalk as though the 1980's were yesterday. My math tutee has a sense of humor in how she shared my video of my Uplift opener at Ala Moana Centerstage and her hashtag read, "my math tutor can dance." What? A mathematician who can beatbox and moonwalk and dance? Get out! That is unheard of, how is that logical? Yes, it is possible.

Thank you Hawaii Baptist Academy for helping me to kick-off the Perfect Father Tour in memory of my father, who passed away on this Father's Day. I had a great time providing live beatbox entertainment, an inspirational speech, beatbox workshop, and a Q&A session for their Gifted by One Assembly.

​I want to thank HBA for inviting me to perform at this assembly. I had a wonderful blast to deliver HBA's best summer yet.

Hawaii Sensation Jason Tom, beat boxer


December 24, 2008 08:12 PM | by Maimounah Masudi



Over the years I have seen all kinds of musical talents from different parts of the country and the world. I love the ones that bring something new or something old with a fresh twist on it, not straying too much from the origin. One day I came across a guy on a website that was a music artist. He was very different from the average music artists in that he performed without any background music. The music was actually coming from within him. He himself was actually a musical instrument. I was amazed at his talent. He has fresh sounds, you can see the energy popping off of him,…
