The Jets Live in Manila for Greatest Hits Tour and 30th Anniversary


Wazzup Pilipinas!

One of the most popular family that sings together during the 80s is once again in the Philippines for their Greatest Hits Tour.

Your Pambansang Blogger ng Pilipinas was invited to attend their Greatest Hits Tour press conference held on November 4, 2015 at the new Novotel hotel located at Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City. The hotel serves as their temporary home during their stay in the Philippines.

The Jets will be celebrating their 30th Anniversary in the music industry at a concert on November 6, 2015 at the Kia Theater located also at Araneta Center. 

Members of the media got the rare privilege to interview and have photo ops with 5 of the siblings. I am proud to say we were the very first one to request for a photo ops with them while they were on the elevated platform where the press conference was held. We have video coverage of both media Q & A and their a cappella performances, including a personal interview with them.

You can view the videos below (divided into several parts for viewing convenience), or check them at our YouTube channel, or at our new Dailymotion channel. Links to the videos will also be posted at the Facebook fan page of Wazzup Pilipinas.

Originally from the Island Kingdom of Tonga, the Wolfgramm family, Maikeli and Vake together with their children (which eventually turned to a total of 17 throughout the years), moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. Inspired by the Osmonds and Jacksons family, a family band was created to help make ends meet. 

The children had no formal training and were only taught by their mother Vake. They went against all odds, from being called The Polynesian Pearls, to the Quazar, and finally as The Jets when retired Motown representative Don Powell offered them a management contract from which they eventually become hailed as one of the most successful family of singers.



The Wolfgramm siblings have their own families now, with their own kids, but still many of them could not stay away from their origins as a family band. One of the siblings even has 13 kids of his own, and also inclined to follow their footsteps for being musically attached as well when they formed their own family band.



Above video is just part 1 of our interview with The Jets. Be sure to watch the remaining parts (total of 10) to get to know more about the family and their history.

Until today, their songs are still being played all throughout the radio stations reminiscing the 80s when music was considered at their best and the singers were singing direct from their hearts, and lungs, without the help of technological cheats like Autotune.


It will be a great pleasure to watch them perform live at the Kia Theater this coming Friday. Thank you to the organizers for providing us VIP tickets for the whole family as it is really a family event that hopes to inspire other families to setup their own bonding activities, maybe not similarly as entertainers, but through other ways possible. 

The Filipino family members has been known throughout the world to be well-connected and close with each other. It would be great doing something productive and beneficial just like singing.

The Wolfgramm family, more popularly known as The Jets, would forever be in our history. May their music legacy continue throughout the next generations.

See you at the Kia Theater.
