Orlando, FL – Teen music sensations, JETTS17, brought the house down Thursday Night at the House of Blues during WXXL’s “In The Spotlight with XL106.7 and Kid Cruz.” JETTS17 took the stage as a special treat to Orlando fans and entertained the crowds prior to the announcement of the winning results.
JETTS17 have been described as the “New Millennium Family Band” according to People Magazine, and family is what JETTS17 are all about. From their intricate choreography to their soaring vocals, this group of teens from the Wolfgramm family packs a one-two punch. The group consists of five younger brothers and sisters of the original 80’s group, The Jets, that had such hits as “Crush On You” and “Make It Real.” With the addition of three cousins bringing the group total to eight, JETTS17 are a force to be reckoned with.
JETTS17 bring a new mix to the pop music scene of today. In addition to the size of the group, and the fact that they are all family, their music and stage presence sets them apart from the others. JETTS17 have created a fresh new sound by taking current Pop/R&B sounds and adding island grooves from their native Tonga.Having shared the stage with such entertainment legends like Little Richard, Natalie Cole, and Earth, Wind & Fire has helped them become seasoned performers. Most recently they showed the world their talent during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. Currently the group can be found in Orlando where they are recording their first album. The next stop for JETTS17 will be opening for Mandy Moore at Seaworld’s Grad Night 2002 on May 3.
With their older siblings’ guidance, the younger Wolfgramms are poised to take over where their brothers and sisters left off.
