This week for Minnesota Music Monday, I’m cranking up the Wayback Machine to the 80s and the musical stylings of The Jets. A band composed of siblings from the Twin Cities, they were not only my first concert, they also attended my high school. They enjoyed some success with songs ranging from sweet ballads like “Make It Real,”
and “You Got It All.”
But who could forget their big dance hit “Crush on You”
Ah – could that video be more 80s if it tried? The Jets did receive a Grammy nomination for their Prince-like titled song “Rocket 2 U”
Along with Prince, The Jets shined a spotlight on the Minneapolis music scene in the 80s and helped keep Minneapolis a great music city that we still enjoy today.
