90's Boy Bands - Where are they now?
In the mid-'90s, All-4-One hit it big with songs like "I Swear" and "I Can Love You Like That." Since then, they continue to record new music and tour, particularly in Asia. Their latest album, Twenty+, was released in 2015. In addition, member Delicious Kennedy co-founded the Catalina Film Festival, located on California's Catalina Island.
The Backstreet Boys continue to tour and record, including 2011's collaborative album with New Kids on the Block, NKOTBSB. They also made a cameo as themselves in This is the End, and put out a documentary on the band, Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of.
They first went from boys to men, and now they've also gone from a quartet to a trio. Michael McCary left the group in 2003 due to his battle with scoliosis, but Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman have carried on without him, recording new music and performing shows. They did a joint tour in 2013 with New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees, and released their most recent album in 2014, Collide.
My very first concert ever and the comforter on my bed for 3+ years - NKOTB. The kid might not be new, but you can still see him on the block. Like his brother Mark, Donnie has made the successful transition from singer to actor, with credits including The Sixth Sense, four of the Saw movies, and CBS's hit police drama Blue Bloods. He can also be found on the reality shows Wahlburgers and Donnie Loves Jenny, and out on the road with the New Kids.
Would you even recognize them! They may have started their career out as boys, but the Hanson brothers are now men. Men who, as it turns out, enjoy a cool frosty brew. That's why they launched their own beer in 2013, called (naturally) Mmmhops. (Can we get any more corny! But yeah, I'd try it) In addition, they continue to perform all over the world and record new music.
While still involved with the Backstreet Boys, Nick Carter has also gotten into movies. At the 2015 San Diego Comic Con, Nick Carter revealed he is directing and starring in a movie he wrote, Dead 7, about post-apocalyptic gunslingers facing off against zombies. Best of all, the movie will also feature fellow BSBs Howie Dorough and AJ McLean, plus Joey Fatone, O-Town's Erik-Michael Estrada, Jacob Underwood and Trevor Penick, and Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees.
Besides continuing with the New Kids and his solo career, Joey McIntyre has made his way into acting, appearing in films like 2013's The Heat, TV shows including The McCarthys and Boston Public, and stage musicals such as Happy Days (as Fonzie) and Wicked.
He may no longer be in NSYNC, but Joey Fatone is still putting his voice to good use...as the announcer for Family Feud, a job he's held since 2010. And on camera, Joey can be seen as the host of Food Network's Rewrapped. But he hasn't left the world of music behind ”” he's appeared in stage musical productions of The Producers, 42nd Street, Rock of Ages and more.
Besides his work with the New Kids, Jordan has released three solo albums, including 2011's Unfinished. Then in 2014, the Kid teamed up with a Boy ”” Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys ”” to record the album Nick & Knight. Despite the title, the album consists of music, not reruns of classic sitcoms.
They were a quartet when they broke through in the early '90s with hits like "I Wanna Sex You Up" and "I Adore Mi Amore." After their last album in 1998, Kevin Thornton became a licensed minister, Mark Calderon wrote and produced music for other artists, Bryan Abrams released solo music and collaborated with the Insane Clown Posse, and Sam Watters wrote and produced songs for artists including Kelly Clarkson and Celine Dion. Abrams, Calderon and Thornton reunited for a Color Me Badd tour of Singapore in 2015.
After breaking up in 2002, 98 Degrees reunited in 2013 for a new album and tour. While not with his bandmates, Nick Lachey keeps busy with TV hosting gigs, including NBC's singing contest The Sing-Off and VH1's talk show Big Morning Buzz Live. Let's not forget his marriage to Jessica Simpson 2002 - 2006 with a TV reality show and then married Vanessa Minnillo in 2011 to now.
Besides continuing with Boyz II Men, Stockman started his own record label, Soul Chemistry Projects, and spent four seasons as a judge on NBC's The Sing-Off.
Kevin Richardson left the Backstreet Boys in 2006. Then, after the occasional guest appearance with the group, Kevin officially re-joined the Backstreet Boys in 2012. But besides his music career, he's also found his way as an actor, starring in the vampire musical The Bloody Indulgent, Christian drama Love Takes Wing, and indie drama The Casserole Club, which earned Richardson an Independent Vision Award for Best Actor at the 2011 Vision Fest.
After a much publicized attempt to travel into space fell through in 2002, Bass has maintained his interest in the exploration of space, serving on the Board of Governors of the National Space Society along with Tom Hanks and others. Bass also executive produced the documentary Kidnapped for Christ, and hosts his own radio show on OutQ, an LGBT-geared station on Sirius XM.
He still performs with the New Kids, but he revealed that performing wasn't always easy for him. He revealed in 2000 that he suffered from frequent panic attacks, but got medical help to get his panic disorder under control. In 2011, he appeared on MTV's True Life to help a fan who also suffered from panic disorder. More recently, Jonathan and partner Harley Rodriguez appeared on the 26th season of The Amazing Race, coming in 9th place.
