Rock Your Poetry

December 15, 2011 at 07:00PM

Two nights ago, I did an opening beatbox performance for the Rock Your Body Fashion Dance Benefit at the SoHo Mixed Media Bar presented by National Dance Week Hawaii and Dancers Unlimited. Here I am rocking the Far East Movement x Subcrew cap, the O.W.W.L (One World With Love) shirt and my Radii 420 Top sneakers.

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.

Upcoming event Art After Dark on August 29th at the Honolulu Academy of Arts from 6:00PM to 9:00PM. It's free to academy members (I'm not a member), $10 to non-members (refunded if you join that night). I encourage all of my supporters who has or has never seen me perform live before to come. Yes I will perform as a featured guest, but there's more!

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).

My friend who recently came back to Hawaiʻi from New York for a short stay said th…

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
