Jonas Brothers Biography
It's About Time
Joe, Kevin and Nick Jonas are the three brothers who make up the band, Jonas Brothers. All three sibs had experience in the spotlight before forming their band - either on the stage or in commercials. The boys eventually signed with Columbia Records, and their first album, It's About Time, hit shelves in August 2006, launching the band to fame with songs like Mandy (which made it to number four in the charts) and Year 3000.
TV Star Spies
The Jonas Brothers quickly made their way from music to TV, with appearances on MTV's Total Request Live, Zoey 101: Spring Break-Up, and the Cartoon Network show Fridays. All that TV experience must have paid off - The Jonas Brothers starred with Demi Lovato in Camp Rock, Disney Channel's biggest release sinceHigh School Musical, and the guys will star in a Disney Channel show that was originally set to be called J.O.N.A.S. (Junior Operatives Networking As Spies) featuring the boys as international spies who masquerade as a rock band. However, Nick has said that the show's concept has changed and, likely, the title will too. This new show begins filming in September 2008 and will premier in late spring 2009.
Hitting the Road
Since releasing Jonas Brothers in 2007, the boys have been hard at work with numerous TV appearances and they opened for Avril Lavigne on her Best Damn Tour in 2008. Now huge stars themselves, The Jonas Brothers will begin their own Burning Up Tour to promote their third album, A Little Bit Longer this summer. During the concert they will also film a 3D concert movie like Miley Cyrus did for her Best of Both Worlds Tour.
