Blue Jupiter

Blue Jupiter

Mixed Contemporary Quartet from New York City, NY.

Blue Jupiter's all-vocal performance is nothing short of explosive! The world-touring a cappella quartet has been described as "The real deal," by rock legend, Gene Simmons; "Simply terrific" by Scott Conant of Food Network, "Incredible!" by Jane Pauly from NBC; "Nothing short of magic," by the Sands Casino Entertainment Department, and "Simply the best music act we've ever had at our schools," by the Connecticut Public Schools Board. Blue Jupiter's energetic blend of pop lead vocals, jazzy a cappella harmony and funky beatbox has garnered standing ovations in over 40 states and around the world.

Blue Jupiter first gained national fame as the voices of Oreo Cookie, singing the national Oreo radio commercial since 2005. Since then, Blue Jupiter has worked with famed producer and American Idol Judge Randy Jackson, sang with Livingston Taylor and performed on Oprah and VH1's Save the Music. They've headlined charity events for the American Cancer Society, The Red Cross, Braking the Cycle, Hartford Children's Hospital and many others. Blue Jupiter has been voted "Audience Favorite" multiple times at the Harmony Sweepstakes and has appeared at countless NACA (National Association of Campus Activities), showcases including the 2008 National Showcase in St. Louis.

In between sold-out performances at theatres, festivals and clubs, Blue Jupiter creates a powerful educational experience for their younger audiences. Their award-winning arts in education programs teach the history, theory and practice of vocal music. Dubbed "A Cappella University," Blue Jupiter's hands-on, age appropriate classes are specially tailored for ages K-college. Younger audiences experience imaginary time travel, complete with astonishing vocal special effects, in which the historical styles of vocal music aren't just discussed, they are experienced. Older students get a high speed dose of theory and practice, including a focus on the rhythmic fundamentals and creative vocal effects behind beatboxing.

Of course, when holidays roll around, its time for holiday festivities! November through January, Blue Jupiter presents their holiday show: Scattered Flurries. From high speed romps on Santa's run-a-way sleigh to heartwarming Christmas classics to danceable Chanukah favorites, this is a pitch-perfect family show.

Blue Jupiter : Live In New York

Edgy pop-funk Blue Jupiter, who won Audience Favorite and Best Arrangement at the Washington DC and NYC Harmony Sweeps Regionals 2 years in a row and recently won Oreo's "Milk's Favorite Jingle" contest, which now is all over the radio, brings us their 3rd CD-the first two the critically acclaimed "Ear Candy" and "Scattered Flurries." "Live" has "no tricks, no tracks, just four mouths and four mics," all 12 cuts arranged, performed and recorded by these 4 talented guys in November 2005 in New York City. Smoky Robinson's "Get Ready," Cindy Lauper's "Time After Time," the Turtles' reborn bubblegum hit "Happy Together," a bluesy, funky cover of "Flip, Flop & Fly," the wonderful "Mr. Pinstripe Suit," Carlos Santana's classic "Smooth" and "Wrapped Up In You" from Ear Candy, the vocal percussion drum solo on "Steal My Kisses" and the driving final cut "All The Small Things" are favorites. Inexplicably, there's guitar accompaniment on "Drive," but the crowd is going nuts throughout, and so are we whenever we see or hear this energetic, dynamic quartet-"Live" is a stone winner!

Songlist: Get Ready, The Remedy, Wrapped Up In You, Time After Time, Brand New Jones, Flip Flop 'n' Fly, Mr Pinstripe Suit, Drive, Smooth, Steal My Kisses, Happy Together, All The Small Things

Blue Jupiter : Scattered Flurries

Could this group be the next big thing in contemporary a cappella? Perhaps the biggest buzz in some circles has been for Blue Jupiter who have been compared to Rockapella, M-Pact, and The Blenders - and with very good reason. They are earning a reputation for performing high-energy shows (one of which was at the West Coast Summit) and are focused on becoming a full-time professional group. Opening with the strong original "Scattered Flurries" the group goes on to sing a mix of Christmas standards with a style and sophistication that showcase their solid harmonies, creative arrangements and obvious talent. Well produced and recorded - a holiday treat for all a cappella fans.

Songlist: Scattered Flurries, Ready for a Miracle, O Holy Night, Mary Did YouKnow, What Child Is This, Lonely Night, Jingle Bells, The Christmas Song, Celebrate Me Home, Silent Night
