Over 200 shows in China and Japan...
Hong Kong Fashion Show
Blue Jupiter is big in Asia! The quartet developed a following after headlining the Sands Casino in Macau, China, and performing at multiple theatrical and fashion-oriented venues in Shanghai and Hong Kong. But ironically, the group's favorite Asian show was an all-American one: headlining the Fourth of July celebration for the 10,000 US troops at the Kadena Airbase in Okinawa, Japan.
