Children of the '80s, good news! The Jets are back!
The Jets were formed by eight brothers and sisters of the musical Wolfgramm family: Leroy, Eddie, Eugene, Haini, Rudy, Kathi, Elizabeth and Moana, and were a ready-made band from Minneapolis. As offspring of parents who emigrated from the South Pacific nation of Tonga to the US, this ensemble got an early start in music singing and playing instruments around the house.
I found out...I've got a crush on you.
One day, their playing music for family and friends and talent shows turned into a record deal that was the start of something very special. Memory lane: The year was 1986, and The Jets' first self-titled album was released by MCA. The group had lots of mass appeal with their innocent, good looks and upbeat charm. And no one could anticipate that their first effort would get so much attention.
The decade was nearing its close, and The Jets didn't release a project, and instead chose a brief hiatus. In 1990, MCA released the group's next CD, the last for the label, entitled The Best of the Jets.
Today, The Jets are making new music, gearing up for a reunion tour and are ready to share their enthusiasm for music. And though the group may have experienced only a brief stay in the musical spotlight, they go down in harmonious history as singers who simply love music.
Get drunk on nostalgia and by listening to their ballad "You Got It All."
