Joe Jonas first began teasing a new band on social media in September, he’s been working towards bringing DNCE to life for years now ever since The Jonas Brothers disbanded in 2013 (after moving 17 million records worldwide and becoming worldwide stars).
The group is rounded out by South Korean guitarist JinJoo who Joe first met when she was playing lead guitar for Jordin Sparks—the opener of The Jonas Brothers’ 200…9 world tour. A virtuoso in her own right, she’s toured with everybody from Charli XCX to CeeLo Green.
Then, there’s bassist and keyboardist Cole Whittle who co-founded New York alternative dance trailblazers Semi Precious Weapons. Drummer Jack Lawless stepped behind the kit for The Jonas Brothers in 2006 and went on to become their full-time drummer. He’s also toured with Night Terrors of 1927 and Soft Swells.
