Good news and bad news. First the good news: Blue Jupiter won the popular vote! A million thanks to our fans who voted us to the top of the HLN's Morning Express with Robin Meade Theme Contest. You were there for us when we needed you! The bad news is that Robin chose the "other group". Of course we're disappointed, but we also wanted to pass on our congratulations to these girls, tell them to keep up the great whistling, and wish them all the success in the world! On to the next project! Thanks and big hugs to all of you!
Marty flexed his Beatboxing chops today for a few casting and ad-executives for a new national TV commercial. The spot will feature a beatboxing frog (among other characters). We'll keep you posted during callbacks!

Marty Gasper, the man behind the beats and bass of Blue Jupiter, will be a featured guest with the Jewish a cappella group Six13 in September during their short tour to Israel. Marty has often provided front-of-house sound production for Six13 throughout the year and is excited to join them onstage for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Marty will be joined by Diana for the trip. They will be keeping Blue Jupiter's Facebook page current with pictures from the Holy Land.
The next time you're stuck in a Marriot, Best Western, or Holiday Inn, and find yourself searching for a movie to watch on the hotel's "InDemand" movie rental system, pay attention to the voice that giving you instructions to push "OK" on your remote. Diana's voice can be heard nation-wide on a number of commercials, including a recent TV spot for Planters. She, along with Robert Downey Junior shared some animated screen time; Robert as "Mr. Peanut" and Diana as his "Butterfly" sidekick!
