Could The Jonas Brothers Be Plotting A Reunion? The band of brothers parted ways abruptly in 2013, much to the shock of fans from around the world. There are reports that the famed trio have been working secretly on a reunion in the near future.
The Jonas Brothers formed in 2005 and their careers gained momentum after appearing on Disney Channel and touring with several big names at the time such as Jump5, Backstreet Boys, Kelly Clarkson, and Jesse McCartney. They also toured with Disney-affiliated groups Aly & AJ and The Cheetah Girls. Despite the image both parties attempted to keep, the relationship between The Jonas Brothers and Disney was back and forth. After years of filming music videos, recording albums, appearance on Disney related channels and shows, filming of a 3-D Documentary, filming both Camp Rock Disney Channel Original Movies, and a tv show of their own, the decision was made for both parties to ultimately part ways and move on in different directions.
As a band, The Jonas Brothers, have only released an official 4 Albums, but with the inclusion of their television show album and the album of live recordings from their documentary, they have 6 Albums currently under their belt and have worked on a total of 23 Albums either in collaberation, featured performances, singles, or for films. This does not count the work they have done since the band split in 2013 or their solo endevours. The brothers have worked on solo careers, passion projects, and a new band, since the split. Needless to say, they were wildly successful both as a group and as individuals, and have put a lot of boy bands to shame.
The buzz really got started in January 2018 after the brothers reactivated their Instagram account, jonasbrothers, for the first time since 2013. Among the rumor mill is that they may also be working on another documentary about the progression of their career as a band. It was also leaked that if the boys do reunite the band they would drop the “brothers” portion of the name and simply go by the name: “JONAS.” Disney Fans from back in the day may also recognize that was the name of the TV show the boys starred in on Disney Channel. The show went through a drastic transformation from Jonas to Jonas L.A. before parting ways with Disney.
Though they have not made any new posts on the account since the reactivation, reunion rumors have been circulating every few months ever since. The biggest indicator that this time it may be true is that the brothers have been spending more time together than previously recorded and their travels have been fairly underwraps. A recent extended trip to London for all three of the Jonas’s and a ski trip including Nick Jonas, his wife Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Joe Jonas, and his fiancee Sophie Turner, are the main causes for this new wave of momentum for the rumors.
It has also been reported that Nick, in particular, has been liking comments on social media that are related to a possible reunion. Kevin also told UsWeekly in May of 2018 “There are guitars everywhere around all of our houses. Pianos. Guitars. It’s kind of just in our blood. It’s in our nature,” he explained. “It’s not like we’re trying to do anything special, it’s just that we’re hanging out and music is a part of who we are. It always happens.”
Once The Jonas Brothers have made a formal announcement regarding a reunion we will be sure to let you know! In the meantime I will be listening to the throwback bops, dusting off my concert tee’s, and enjoying this wave of nostalgia.
