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)
Julie Gold - "From A Distance"
Julie was a secretary at HBO when she thawed out her childhood piano (literally) and wrote the hit that changed her life.
Tony Joe White
The writer of "Rainy Night in Georgia" and "Polk Salad Annie" explains how he cooks up his Louisiana swamp rock.
Jon Fratelli talks about the band's third album, and the five-year break leading up to it.
An original member of Depeche Mode, Vince went on to form Erasure and Yaz.
