As you can tell from the title of the post, today I’m going to be discussing Joe Jonas’s new band, and their new song! Before I do that though, I would be out of line if I didn’t mention something else on this very special day:
That’s right, it’s Nick Jonas’s birthday. I still remember him as a young, fresh-faced teen in the Jonas Brothers. Even then he was the talented one… but now here he is, all grown up and gorgeous and stuff. Some people have all the luck.
Except Joe hasn’t completely given in to Nick being the only successful Post-Jo Bros member of the family. He announced a new band just a few days ago, and released their first song yesterday. What a quick pace! Is he trying to upstage Nick’s birthday? Probably not, but you know… I like to ask the tough questions. Also I just did some reading on the Jonas Brothers and apparently Kevin now owns his own home-building company… so I guess that’s success too. Take that, Nick!
So, a bit about Joe’s new band. They are called DNCE, and Joe is their frontman. There are three other members to the band: lead guitarist Jinjoo Lee, bass guitarist Cole Whittle, and drummer Jack Lawless. Lee and Lawless both played with the Jonas Brothers back in the day, so it’s at least somewhat clear how they got involved. Whittle I’m not so sure about. DNCE’s Twitter bio cheekily says just “Your new favorite band”… maybe Joe Jonas, maybe. Other than that, there’s not too much information swimming around the internet yet so keep your eyes and ears peeled to learn more about this exciting new group!
They dropped their new song “Cake By The Ocean” the other day and boy is it catchy! It has a fun dance vibe and in some ways almost sounds like a grown up Jonas Brothers song. I can’t wait to hear what else these guys have to say. Maybe Joe actually does have what it takes to get back into the music biz!
