Blue Jupiter at SAMS!


"Blue Jupiter has been in Shanghai for the past 8 days. The tour has been amazing. We've met musicians from across the world and have started planning a return visit next fall!

One of the highlights of the trip was performing at the Shanghai American School. Blue Jupiter rocked the auditorium during a daytime assembly and answered questions from the students after school. We have fallen in love with this city and hope to return soon.

We have a ton of video and photos to share with everyone. We'll post them on our website as soon as we return from China."
