Must-Know Facts For Every Jonas Brothers Fan

Life Before Music

The Jonas Brothers come from a family of musicians, where their mother, Denise Jonas, was a singer and their dad, Kevin Jonas Sr., worked as a music program director.
While the couple provided a strong foundation for their children, Denise also believed that "it's important for parents not to be afraid of their kids' talents."

The Breakthrough

Nick landed a record deal with the prestigious Columbia Records and recorded a solo album in 2004 before Columbia discovered demos of all three brothers playing together.
After listening to the trio, Columbia shelved the solo effort and had the three brothers record an album together as the Jonas Brothers instead — and the rest is history.

The Original Name

In addition to writing many of their own songs for the debut album "It's About Time," the three teens worked with an impressive roster of producers like Michael Mangini.
Johnny Wright, who signed the brothers while he was still working with the Backstreet Boys, almost named the trio Sons of Jonas before they became The Jonas Brothers.

An Abrupt End

In 2013, the Jonas Brothers appeared to still be riding high as one of the most popular boy bands until the group canceled their tour two days before the first concert date.
A spokesman mentioned "a deep rift within the band" and "a big disagreement over their music direction." A few weeks later, the group officially announced they were splitting up.

Thoughts on Disney

The Jonas Brothers rode the Disney wave with movies like "Camp Rock" and "The Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience," as well as a Disney Channel sitcom titled "Jonas."
"Being a part of the Disney thing for so long will make you not want to be this perfect little puppet forever," Joe Jonas said after the trio parted ways with the network.
