Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
The group was formed by guitarist Leroy Wolfgramm with 7 of his brothers and sisters. They are natives of the Pacific island nation of Tonga who are based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
In 1989, they played several free concerts that were attended by the entire population of Tonga. (thanks, Brad Wind - Miami, FL, for above 2)
There are 17 kids total in the Wolfgramm family. There have been 3 bands to come out of that family, The Jets being the original, followed by Jett17 and Against The Season. (thanks, Jamie - Los Angeles, CA)
Mike Watt - "History Lesson, Pt. 2"
Mike Watt of the Minutemen tells the story of the song that became an Indie Rock touchstone. It's also the story of what Mike calls "The Movement."
Dean wrote the screenplay and lyrics to all the songs in Footloose
. His other hits include "Fame" and "All The Man That I Need."
Since emerging from MySpace with her hit "Bubbly," Colbie has become a top songwriter, even crafting a hit with Taylor Swift.
Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
