Moonstar 88 Profile
Why the name Moonstar 88?
Apparently the band had a gig and they still don’t have a name for their group. They have a list then and have to pick one up before its their turn to perform. Moonstar was one of the many names on that list. They picked Moonstar 88 because apparently, they are performer number 88.
