The Jets

The Jets Eighties teenyboppers The Jets came from n  large family (17 children overall) and were comprised of eight of the family’s brothers and sisters — Leroy, Eddie, Eugene, Haini, Rudy, Kathi, Elizabeth , and Moana Wolfgramm (their parents originally emigrated to the U.S. from the South Pacific nation of Tonga, in 1965, but their offspring were raised in Minneapolis). From 1986 though 1989, The Jets enjoyed several dance-pop hits (tops being “Crush on You” and “You Got It All”), as well as several full-length albums, two of which (their 1986 self-titled debut and 1987’s Magic) obtained gold and/or platinum certification.

They are comprised of brothers and sisters of the Wolfgramm Family. The original group was 8 brothers and sisters, Leroy, Eddie, Eugene, Haini, Rudy, Kathi, Elizabeth and Moana. The Wolfgramm family has 17 children so it was joked that “If one leaves, there is another Jet just waiting in the wings” as is the case today. It was a family affair as their parents were involved in every aspect of their careers and often would tour with their little brothers, sisters and cousins watching from the sidelines. They often credit their faith as being one of the things that helps hold everything together as they are a strong Latter Day Saint Family.
