Imagine yourself in the early 2000’s. It was a new era of music, celebrities, and talent that covered everyone’s screens all over the world. Disney Channel was at its absolute prime, and everyone was in love with the Disney original movies that were coming out.
We had High School Musical, Wizards of Waverly Place (the movie), The Cheetah Girls, and Camp Rock. These celebrities became crucial parts of generation X’s growth, as they have shaped many of us into who we are.
Camp Rock, was a movie that featured The Jonas Brothers as main actors in both the first and second film that took place. This was the moment the world began to wonder: who are the Jonas Brothers?
As word of mouth grew and the three brothers' fame began to skyrocket, it started to become abundantly clear that these boys would become a larger part of both the music industry and world of acting.
The year was 2006 and Kevin, Joe, and Nick released their first single which we all know as “6 minutes”. They then debuted their first album “It’s About Time” shortly after. Their fan base began growing exponentially with every song that took over the radio and televisions everywhere, and the three boys from a small town in New Jersey, were finally believing they were going to make it big.
As their music grew and popular songs like “Love Bug”, “Year 3000”, and “Burnin’ Up” were given to the public to listen to, The Jonas Brothers realized they were at the height of their career, and the only way they could possibly go from here was up. Disney Channel began reaching out to the brothers and the familiar faces began showing up as guests on various Disney oriented shows.
From guest starring on Hannah Montana, to becoming main characters on both Camp Rock films, to even having their own Disney show called “Jonas”, the three teenage boys had the world of Disney covered from every angle, and were constantly being broadcasted for the world to see.
For eight years The Jonas Brothers were touring the world, making new music, and experiencing the crazy life of juggling music, acting, and the struggles that come with growing up in the public eye.
All was going well for years as, from the outside, it looked to viewers and fans that the three brothers were handling the ups and downs of their career especially well. Until 2013, when Kevin, Joe, and Nick officially announced to the world that they had decided to break up as a band.
It was said that this decision had been made for multiple reasons, depending on which brother you wanted to focus on. Kevin, the eldest, was now married and wanted to focus more on his wife and kids at home, while living a more calm lifestyle. Joe had desires to continue his love for music while making a different kind of music with a new band known as DNCE. Then finally, Nick had decided to continue on in the same industry, but diving head first into music as a solo artist, with the urge to be taken more seriously.
Is this exactly true to why the band decided to split up? The truth ranges on which brother you talk to. For the most part, Nick had decided that he wanted a solo career as a music artist, then quickly shared the news to Joe and Kevin, and the rest was history. The band we had known and loved for eight years had come to an end, and fans were nowhere close to being ready to let them go.
After six years of growth, lifestyle changes, and new ideas for the future, the three boys announced to everyone in February of 2019 that they were ready to write, share, and perform music as the band we had once known and loved dearly. The Jonas Brothers were back and better than ever.
COVID has caused a halt in the plans the brothers had made for their dreams of what direction the band could move into; however, they made sure that was not going to stop them from their dreams.
They produced their single “Sucker” quickly after their announcement, and from there came out with a new album, documentary, and when time eventually allowed, they began touring the United States as much as they could.
Now, as we look at present time in the year 2023, they have gone on countless tours, are about to begin their albums tour (which focuses on all their music), and even came out with their newest album May 12th.
The Jonas Brothers have gone through quite the ride as they each have spent the past decades not only figuring out who they are as a band, but also who they are individually. At the end of the day, we can look to Kevin, Joe, and Nick and come to understand and appreciate the music they have provided us as we have grown up beside them, while their music was a background to the days of our lives.
