History[edit]

Four amateur musicians of Kaname Nemoto, Kiyoshi Kakinuma, Masami Terada and Toshikatsu "VOH" Hayashi, from Saitama Prefecture, first formed the band called Gypsy and Arere-no-re (ジプシーとアレレのレ?, Jipusī to Arere no Re) in 1979, to participate in the Yamaha Popular Song Contest, where they won the Best Song Award with a song of the Ora ga Chinju no Muramatsuri (おらが鎮守の村祭り?). Since 1981, they've renamed the group as the present Stardust Revue (スターダストレビュー?, Sutādasuto Rebyū), because they desire to show various musical characteristics represented by a jazz standard song "Stardust" and ones of themselves in Revue-style performance. Its earliest recordings were STARDUST REVUE (the first album) and Shugā wa Otoshigoro (シュガーはお年頃?) (the first single), both released on May 25, 1981.

In its 20th anniversary year of 2001, they toured all over Japan to hold concerts as usual, and then, on August 4, they performed no less than 101 pieces of music in a concert at the Tsumagoi Multipurpose Arena in Shizuoka, Japan. This performance has been recognized by the Guinness World Records as "the most pieces of music performed in 24 hours by a group."[4]
