Their latest album “Destiny, Free-Will and Chaos” was nominated as Long Beach Post’s “Best Long Beach Album of 2015” despite being released only a week prior to the poll. Jupiter 2.0 was also nominated again in 2017 in the “Best Band” category. Since their rebirth, Jupiter 2.0 has maintained a very active concert schedule performing throughout the southern California area — the performances continue — new bookings are constantly being added to the calendar.
