The Jets Lost MILLIONS & Revealed The “Humiliating” JOBS They Had AFTER Success
Remember The Jets? They were the 8 siblings who had us jammin’ to their hits, “You got It All, “Crush On You,” and many more in the mid 80’s. Then all of sudden we never heard from the Polynesian family with the R&B sound again.
So what happened? Well based on what one of The Jets’ singers, Moana Wolfgramm (pictured above in the pink/purple jacket), explained in an interview with Classic Bands, a LOT happened -from being robbed of millions of dollars, stricken with cancer, and family turmoil. They faced some extremely tough times after their fame subsided and ended up having to work jobs they admitted were humiliating for them. Read excerpts from Moana’s interview below…
How The Jets Became Broke After Massive Music Success
Moana explained, in the interview, that their parents lack of knowledge about the business side of the music game and their then manager, Don Powell, were the main reasons for their financial downfall back then.
Moana: “We were signed I believe to his production deal. He had a company called Twin Town Sounds and he signed us to that. Then the record company signed that production company. I’m learning all this now that I’m older, but when you’re eleven, you have no idea what’s going on. We worked hundreds of shows every year. It was later on that you realized the good and bad that came from it.”
