Hobbit

The son of a blues musician and pianist, Hobbit (aka Jack Hobbs) was surrounded by music from birth. Hobbit soon found percussion to be his true calling and his love of sound naturally gravitated him towards beatboxing.

Beatboxing since 2003 and performing everything from intimate gigs through to stadium tours across the world means that Hobbit is a true stage and seasoned festival artist.

Hobbits show has taken him from stages at Glastonbury Festival to Times Square in New York. In a single decade, he has accomplished much, not only for himself but for the art form as well.

Hobbit has judged the UK Beatbox Championships and hosted the International Beatbox Convention in London and NYC for several years running; an honour no other beatboxer has shared and in no small part due to his impressive battle record.

He is the current 2x UK Loopstation Champion, 3x UK Team Champion with ‘2rBeat’ (previously known as ‘IllBits’) and UK Solo Finalist, as well as international titles. Hobbit is also a member of World Champion beatbox crew, ‘The Beatbox Collective’.

Meet the hobbit at the loop workshop and of course at Meet the Beatbox Collective
