Official Jonas Brothers Fansite in Malaysia

LA Weekly on upcoming NJ&TA Shows at the Wiltern

Last March I watched bassist Sonny Thompson and drummer Michael Bland back up Prince at the Conga Room during the Purple One’s typically audacious three-gig L.A. Live stand. Tonight those two players — along with producer John Fields and keyboardist (and fellow Prince sideman) Tommy Barbarella — will take the stage at the Wiltern with another pint-sized star whose artistic ambition exceeds his physical stature: Nick Jonas, known to tween-pop fans around the world as the youngest Jonas Brother.

On February 2 Jonas is set to release a quickly recorded solo disc, Who I Am, the Huey Lewis-ish title track of which he debuted at last month’s televised Grammy-nominations concert; according to reports from the road, Jonas’s current live show (which touches down at the Wiltern for four nights) includes stuff from Who I Am, several JoBros jams and a handful of covers.

In New York he did “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours” and Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody.” Maybe we’ll get “Darling Nikki”? Also Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
