Blue Jupiter joins The Sing-Off Tour in 2 Cities
'The Sing-Off', NBC's hit television show about a cappella, finishes up it's 5th season, hits the road...AND... it's taking Blue Jupiter with them!
The Sing-Off live in concert will feature New York sensation and vocal band, Blue Jupiter! The Westbury Music Fair in Westbury, NY on February 25th, AND The Sands Bethlehem Event Center will welcome the quartet on March 4th.
Blue Jupiter will share the stage with past and present Sing-Off performers.
According to Diana Preisler, Blue Jupiter's female lead singer and head coach: "It's very fitting that we'll be performing not only on Long Island, close to many of our fans, but at the Sands in Bethlehem. Blue Jupiter headlined at the Sands Casino in Macau China for 3 months in 2008, and we very much enjoy working with the Sands Corp. We're looking forward to introducing Blue Jupiter's signature sound to the Sing-Off fan base. It's always exciting to perform for an audience that has a great appreciation for a cappella as an art form"

Disney and Abc Family chooses Blue Jupiter
ABC Family's hosted THE holiday party of the year last week, and you could hear Blue Jupiter's harmony and beatboxing fill the room with holiday cheer. Hundreds of ABC Family executives, television personalities, and their families, soaked in the Christmas sounds of Blue Jupiter at their annual holiday event held at Rockefeller Center.
"We wanted something more contemporary than traditional carolers; that's too 'old fashion.' Contemporary a cappella is huge right now, thanks to movies like Pitch Perfect. Blue Jupiter was our favorite group of dozens we listened to. Once we heard their rendition of 'Let It Go' from Frozen, we knew we had to have them." - Event Producer
The event was part of ABC Family's Pop Up Santa, and Blue Jupiter was one of the big "pop up" surprises.

Nickelodeon Loves Blue Jupiter's "Bass"
Blue Jupiter at Rockefeller Center
Blue Jupiter pulled out all of the winter and holiday 'stops' at Rockefeller Center this year. Singing a cappella renditions of holiday favorites such as "Rockin Around the Christmas Tree" and "Let it Snow", audiences were delighted to hear these tunes sung in perfect harmony…with a contemporary twist!
Blue Jupiter features one of the country's top vocal percussionists; or "Beatboxers", Marty Gasper! Marty is the drummer for the band, BUT…he also sings the bass part at the same time, which makes him one unique player in the world of entertainment. This also allows Blue Jupiter to sing super fun & contemporary versions of holiday classics we all know and love.
Rockefeller Center cleared the ice rink in preparation of the big event, and the iconic Rockefeller Christmas tree and ice rink at the Rock Center Cafe were the backdrop for this a cappella performance. It makes perfect sense that a New York City icon like Rockefeller Center would feature New York City's premier a cappella band.

Jimmy Fallon isn’t the only guy to rub elbows with The Roots…Blue Jupiter had the privilege of opening for them at the Diamond Horseshoe Theatre, in the iconic Paramount Hotel.
House band for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, this band will knock your socks off, live in concert
“Tuba Gooding Jr, hands-down, has the best tuba job on the planet", says Blue Jupiter’s beatboxer Marty Gasper; “and Questlove has ridiculously good timing."

Blue Jupiter Performs for Food Network Stars
Scott Conant and Marcus Samuelsson are two of the biggest celebrity chefs of Food Network fame. It's no wonder they called upon Blue Jupiter when hosting a private bash for a mutually close friend of theirs.
"You guys are amazing!" says Conant as they congregate for a group photo after their performance, and Scott and Marcus playfully fight over who gets to stand next to Diana.
The party took place at Scott's private test kitchen in Soho, and the menu was conceived and executed by both chefs featuring bold Italian menu items from Scarpetta, along with comfort food items from Red Rooster's delicious menu.
We received an autographed copy of The Scarpetta Cookbook; chock-full of amazing italian recipes. "We figured it should live in Marty's kitchen since he's the family chef among us Jupes" says Preisler.
American Idol's Blake Lewis joins Blue Jupiter at SingStrong
One of American Idol's most memorable performers is no doubt the talented, Blake Lewis. The Season 6 star garnered a standing ovation from Paula Abdul after his performance of "How Deep is Your Love" by the Bee Gees, Blake won over America with his charm, his voice, and his beatboxing!
Blue Jupiter was thrilled to perform with Blake to a sold out crowd in Washington DC and a 2nd time in Chicago, at an international music festival, SingStrong.
"It was a dream singing with Blake. He's a terrific songwriter, performer, and a true musician. We were his back-up band for "Your Touch", an original song that Blake released in 2013 on the album "Portrait of a Chameleon", says Blue Jupiter's beatboxer, Marty Gasper.
Blue Jupiter Helps Launch New Morning Show on The Weather Channel
If you watch The Weather Channel, and suddenly you start singing and dancing to: Nelly's Hot in Herre, Sunny Side of the Street, Ain't No Sunshine, Walkin on Sunshine, or even Let it Go (from Disney's Frozen), you're probably listening to Blue Jupiter!
TWC hired the New York vocal band to promote Sam Champion's new morning show AMHQ. Two film crews followed Blue Jupiter around NYC morning, noon and night while they serenaded NYC atop a double decker bus on St Patrick's Day.
The filming itinerary that day included stops at Times Square, Madison Square Garden, Bryant Park, the Flatiron, Greenwich Village, Union Square, and Wall Street/the Financial District aka: "The Bull"
Locals, and tourists alike, in head-to-toe green, and in kilts stopped in amazement as they were serenaded by Blue Jupiter courtesy of The Weather Channel. Bright Yellow and White umbrellas were handed out at each stop, as New York City danced and twirled to the a cappella group's tunes.
Next time you're channel surfing, stop on TWC and check out the promo on TV!
Blue Jupiter rolled up their sleeves, put on their jingle caps and jumped right back into the studio to help create an all a cappella version of the famous NOKIA ringtone. Although we've heard these guys crooning about cookies at all hours of the night for the past decade, if you hear....
Ba da ba ba, Ba da ba ba, Ba da ba ba ba!
It might not be your neighbor playing pocket bongos looking for their phone, but Blue Jupiter singing it with only the human voice!
We know you know the melody of this iconic ringtone, but did you know the melody has been around since 1902? Gran Vals, composed by the Spanish guitarist Francisco Tarrega
The New York City A cappella band found themselves on set at a Brooklyn soundstage, (Windmill) filming their 5 part version of the catchy tune. "But there are only 4 of them in the band!" you might protest. Yes, but a well-known fact about Blue Jupiter...they sing 5 parts! Beatboxer Marty Gasper, sings the bass at the same time as he drums. It's part of what makes their sound so unique.
Blue Jupiter's video can be found in all Nokia and Microsoft retail stores, and featured on the new Nokia Lumia Icon phones. Next time you hear:
Ba da ba ba, Ba da ba ba, Ba da ba ba ba!
It might be your friends in Blue Jupiter.

Amongst the zip lining, scuba diving, swim up bars, and sloth watching (we actually saw a sloth!), Blue Jupiter found time to sing some a cappella in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica! The Hotel Riu Palace is a beautiful resort complete with 2 outdoor stages for dancers, Latin bands and …a cappella singers from NYC ;-)
No surprise Blue Jupiter received a warm reception from Costa Rica, and plan on returning soon.
As the locals say: Pura Vida!

April 2013: Oreos, Owl City, and Blue Jupiter!
You may know Blue Jupiter as the "the voice of the Oreo cookie commercials" for many years now…but they're not leaving their love for that little cookie behind any time soon.
Oreo turns 101 this year, and they turned to singer-songwriter Adam Young of Owl City to help launch their new campaign song. With one of the top social media teams of all time, Oreo called upon Blue Jupiter to help arrange and perform the new campaign song at their launch, live in NYC on May 14th, 2013. Adam Young of Owl City took center stage with a cappella sensations Blue Jupiter, and Pentatonix (winner's of NBC's the Sing-Off), along with 500+ a cappella singers all in harmony on the streets in Union Square, NYC.
The crowds drew thousands of on-lookers, iPhone movie-makers, and oreo cookie lovers in the center of the Big Apple for this viral event set to launch on YouTube on May 15th.
The new campaign is called "Wonderfilled" and Blue Jupiter spread Oreo Wonder all over NYC, Oreo Headquarters, and media outlets such as The Today Show on NBC in preparation of the big "launch moment." Blue Jupiter was not only one of three featured groups that stood side by side with Owl City, they arranged the Wonderfilled campaign song for all of the 500+ back up singers, and also joined the casting team to help cast and coordinate one of the largest assembly of live a cappella singers, of all time.
A little back story for those of you who don't already know…(although we're pretty sure most of you already do!)
In 2005 Oreo launched a new campaign holding a nation-wide competition to find the new Oreo cookie commercial jingle. Over ten-thousand performers submitted their unique take on the classic Oreo jingle that was used for over 60 years! In the end, Randy Jackson of American Idol declared Blue Jupiter THE WINNER, and the rest is cookies 'n' cream history.

Blue Jupiter's jingle wins popular Vote
Award winning jingle team Blue Jupiter 'knocked it out of the park' says one of the producers on HLN's Morning Express with Robin Meade.
Blue Jupiter flexed their jingle-writing muscles and came up with this theme song for Robin Meade's TV show
CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO JINGLE
The contest to write the new theme song for Robin Meade's television show was entered by thousands of hopefuls from around the US. Although Blue Jupiter won the popular vote (ahead in the end by "millions of votes"), Robin chose a cute little song written by 2 girls that whistled. "We were out of the country, performing in Israel when we got the phone call from the show producers at HLN. We were bummed, but excited that we won the popular vote from Robin's fans. We'll get right back in the studio and write another jingle!"
