Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas may be today’s most talked-about band of musical brothers, but 13 years ago, people were grooving to the catchy pop sound of another brotherly trio: Hanson, the group that gave the world the runaway single “MMMBop.”

Issac, Zac and Taylor are on tour in support of their fifth album, “Shout It Out.” It features Funk Brothers bassist Bob Babbitt, who played on some of Motown’s greatest hits, and horn arranger Jerry Hey, who’s worked with Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Earth, Wind and Fire, among other artists.

>> Hanson performs at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Mesa Arts Center, 1 E. Main St. A Rocket to the Moon opens the show. $32. (480) 644-6500 or www.mesaartscenter.com.
