Escanaba, Michigan — The brothers who make up pop-rock trio, HANSON, will be playing music together on Thursday, August 16 at the U.P. State Fair.
HANSON was founded in 1992 when Issac, Taylor and Zac were just 11, 9, and 6. By 1997 they were considered the ’90s era version of the Jackson 5 when they came storming out of Tulsa, Oklahoma blowing up with the smash hit, “MMMBop.”
Since then, the brothers continue to make music together, with an increasingly mature sound.
“MMMBop” earned three Grammy nominations and reached No. 1 in 27 countries. 2013’s “Anthem” hit No. 22 on the Billboard 200, making it their 8th album to chart on the Top 40. The album’s, “Get the Girl Back,” charted at No. 39 on the Adult Pop Songs chart – their first single in over 9 years to chart on the Billboard Chart.
They have also founded the Hanson Brothers Beer Company and established The Hot Jam Beer and Music Festival, which draws 40,000 attendees. In 2017 they celebrated the band’s 25th anniversary with a worldwide tour. This trio of brother, although never driven by trends or fame have sold over 16 million records worldwide.
