Music Business And Audio Engineering

I stopped by the Mike Curb College MELE Program offered through Belmont University and University of Hawaii at Honolulu Community College advocated by Hawaii's former 2-term Governor Linda Lingle and Lieutenant Governor Duke Aiona. And while at Honolulu Community College to meet up with my friend early this week I ran into two current MELE Music Business and Audio Engineering students. Long story short, after our formal introduction, they tell me, "get out, you're Jason Tom, our teacher spoke about you this morning and how you're one of the top beatboxers in this world." I said, "wow, really? You mean Eric Lagrimas? He was my former teacher in the Mike Curb MELE Program." They responded, "yes, he covered about hip-hop music and he mentioned your name." Thank you …

Lately I visited several home recording studios working with local underground artists and producers, co-produced this past Friday's MELE showcase with the MELE club, and more. At the showcase I was featured in three acts, and co-produced an additional act. Craig Garcia emceed the event with Will on the sound and lights. Also featured were DJ G, The Freaki Tiki Experience (Will & Alastar), Clarence, Kelsey & Jowyn, Harold Villiarimo, PhoeBus, Faioso, Kalei Gamiao, Gino, Eric Lagrimas, Tak Tsui, John Tussey, R£AL, and more. A talented bunch. Behind-the-scenes I worked with the MELE promotion for the Ukulele Guild Exhibition and Conference at McKinley High School scheduled for November 21st to 23rd (click for online flyer). Mahalo MELE!

I wish I could at two places at the same time, don't you????

August 5, 2008 at 09:41AM

Mark your calendars, this Wednesday, August 27th I will MC and perform at the MELE outdoor "Back to School" concert from 11:00AM to 1:00PM at Honolulu Community College. Also featured will be local ska punk reggae rock band Pimpbot, and more. Admission is free, and all ages welcomed!

Also, I've recently been offered through e-mail to perform three five-minute routines on the same date between 11:30AM to 12:30PM at another location for a promotional event, but can't do it since it falls within the same time frame. I'll be able to do the HCC event though.

It is moments like this that I wish I could be at two places at the same time. I really do. This isn't the first time I've felt this way either. If only I could teleport or travel through time.

Anyway, on another note Fi…

Rocket scientists discover Pimpbox???

July 20, 2008 at 06:03AM

Rocket scientists recently found out that if you were to mix Jason Tom beatboxing with Pimpbot, then the "t" (from "bot") tilts to the left, and you get Pimpbox. Okay, that ain't true about the rocket science part, but you should get the idea at the very least.

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.
