This unusual musical pairing of Australian Beatboxer Tom Thum and singer/songwriter/guitarist Jamie Macdowell provides amazing on-stage synergy. They manage to harmoniously blend their varying musical styles to create this wildly eclectic fusion of soul, hip hop; funk with a few acoustic ballads and renditions of classic hits thrown in.
Tom Thum will not only blow your mind away with his beatboxing talents but his singing ability and vocal range was superb. In contrast, Jamie’s soulful lyrics and heartfelt original songs will leave you melancholic but then the tempo changes and its cheeky Jamie jamming on the guitar and dueling with Tom.
The repartee between Tom and Jamie is what takes this great musical performance to another level. The banter and playing off each other makes you feel that you are with some mates in your living room chilling out whilst making unbelievable music.
This has to be one of the best shows at the Fringe so make sure you see it.
Now showing at Royal Croquet Club.
