greg pattillo: the flute beatboxer

he can take any classical song and make it sound awesome to those that don't know, beatboxing is when you make sounds with a beat and rhythm that makes you sound like machine/robot/synthesizer. it is one thing to be good at beatboxing. it is another to play the flute and beatbox at the same time!!! greg pattillobeatbox aka flute beatboxer plays in the streets of new york city and has a master's degree in the flute. he is pretty dang sweet. he has a license to play in the subways and above ground which is one of the many ways he earns money to eat dinner. he is a master at improvising on his flute while beatboxing. you can watch his videos on the side to hear him play. you can also see more of his videos on youtube.com. some of my favorite videos are "spy tunes" where he plays james bond and mission imposible themes. "muppet wars" is the one where he plays the muppets theme and the darth vaderincredibly dope and cool. he also performs with his friend who has been playing the cello since he was 3 years old. i have heard that his CD came out in june but i am still trying to locate it. once i find it i will purchase it as soon as possible. greg pattillo is a very talented man.

This dude totally rocks! How did you find him? Speaking of finding him I say that when you come to see us in NJ we track down Greg and hear him play live in the park (did you hear that we are moving to NJ?) Wouldn't that be fun?!

I love your blog, Bro! I have read all the postings and they are really cool. Keep um coming and I will keep on reading them.

thanks lize! i found him randomly through links on youtube after searching for "bats" because i was thinking of making a bat house in the back yard. then i saw a link that said bat boxing (which was spelled incorrectly) then i saw flute beatboxing! then i found out that he lives in NYC! SCORE! i made me very happy!

I was once destined to become a recorder beatboxer but Mrs. Troop squashed that right quick back in the 4th grade. CURSE YOU IRMA!
