      Well done for a first time - and what a cool concept! Keep trying it out - next time perhaps create a theme, a raffle (people tip a certain amount and you autograph something, whatever). Also, see how many other "world" flavors you can blend in :)

      We liked the interactive nature and appreciated the guys taking requests and responding to questions. They had a few things prepared but was largely unscripted and organic.

“Take one sexy singer-songwriter and a top-notch beat-boxer and you get a musical duo that are redefining musical parameters” (Nouse)
One is good with his fingers; the other is good with his mouth!
Jamie MacDowell and Tom Thum are two honest, unpolished but highly skilled performers, simply doing what they love. Jamie’s brand of heartfelt songwriting and melodic finger-work is elevated when combined with Tom’s heavy hitting, world-class beatboxing.
Armed only with a guitar, a distinctive singing voice and a versatile voice-box able to convey any instrument from a trumpet to drums, this duo is unique: Tom is a one-man orchestra, accompanying his lyrical counterpart Jamie’s beautiful melodies and words.
The effect is like nothing you’ve seen or heard before. Playing off each other’s talents, Jamie MacDowell and Tom Thum are the perfect musical match and their live show is made even stronger by their utterly irresistible charm and wit.
Both well travelled, they have spread their music from the Swiss Alps and Berlin Basements, to the Edinburgh Fringe caves and a Spiegeltent at the Southbank of London. In the touring process, their personalities have somewhat combined and just when you think you have them figured out, the sweet one says something dirty, or the confident one loses his place.
After their sell-out show at last years’ Edinburgh Fringe, one reviewer said: “I really can’t recommend this show highly enough. Seeing two such talented people having great fun on stage is an absolute joy. See them now, because soon you won’t be able to get a ticket for love nor money.” (Broadway Baby)
Come and share an evening with two genuinely passionate and insanely talented human beings.
“Each song is a progressively more complex, … with sounds ranging from a Berlin acid house rave, through a ship's foghorn to a scratchy, warbling Victrola.” (Fest 2013)
