Band of brothers! Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas were lucky enough to have built in bandmates growing up — and fans can say thank you to their parents, Paul and Denise Jonas, for raising such beloved stars, too.
After growing up in New Jersey (alongside younger brother Frankie Jonas, a.k.a. The Bonus Jonas), the Jonas Brothers entered the public eye in the early 2000s when they recorded their first song, “Please Be Mine.” After touring with a number of bands and artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Aly & AJ and The Cheetah Girls, the band released a quick succession of albums including 2006’s It’s About Time and 2007’s self-titled Jonas Brothers.
After landing roles in the 2008 Disney Channel Original Movie Camp Rock, the brothers’ career continued to soar. That same year, they were nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards and won the Breakthrough Artist award at the American Music Awards.
In 2010, the Jonas Brothers decided to take some time away from each other to pursue solo projects. Though they reconciled two years later, they officially broke up in October 2013, with a rep for the band telling Us Weekly their split was due to “a deep rift within the band.” Later, Nick revealed he was mainly to blame for the breakup during a Carpool Karaoke appearance with his brothers in March 2019.
