I remember they were all related. I think they were brothers and sisters or something. Anybody know what happened to them?

They had a couple of big hits in the 80s and then they dissapeared. I used to love that song that went something like " you got me over him, honey it's true". I can't think of the title right this minute.

Anybody got any info?

ya ali...i wonder what happened to them too.
the song you are speaking of, is called 'you got it all.' i like that song. ISIS and i were talking about them not too long ago.
i really like 'crush on you' and 'make it real (another slow one). i bought their greatest hits and i believe that they are all brothers and sisters.

I did like their song and boy were they strictly bubble gum pop [Smile] Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it was just a neat thing that they were all related.

Kinda reminds me of the DeFranco Family

Devolution here,

Didn't they also sing a song called "Cross my Broken Heart?"

Crush on you was a funny one.

The Jets are a 8-member family singing group from the island of Tonga, but later settled and lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Yet, their last names were Wolfgramm. (Don't ask!)

They now have a new website but is still under construction:
http://www.crushonthejets.com

Some other members of the Wolfgramm family recently formed a separate group, called Jett17.

Hope this helps!

17 KIDS???? [Eek!] That is just crazy!

I just read the article about Jett17 and found out there were 17 kids in all! I just don't get it. How did they afford to eat?? [Confused]

Wow, I didn't know they also sang "You Got It All". I love that one and "Make It Real", which I just downloaded of Kazaa recently, can't find it anywhere else.

Oh Yeah, Make it Real! That was a good one too. You would think with 17 kids they would have been able to think up a few more hits. [Wink]

17 kids? Another example of "over-breeding"... [Roll Eyes]
