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.
