It's been over ten years since The Naked Brothers Band TV show premiered on Nickelodeon on February 3, 2007. It aired for three seasons until June 13, 2009. Now that we've got that out the way, we know that you're definitely feeling old right this second. So what was The Naked Brothers band about? The show centered was mockumentary-style and partly based off of Nat Wolff and Alex Wolffs lives. It all started with the 2005 movie of the same name, written and directed by their real-life mother, Polly Draper. (Their real-life dad, Michael Wolff, played their father on the show as well.) All of their bandmates were played by real-life friends. Cool, huh?
The name "Naked Brothers Band" actually arose when Nat and Alex were super young — and, yes, it happened in their real lives. According to a New York Times interview, the brothers exclaimed "We're the Naked Brothers Band!" one day after climbing out of the bath. In preschool, Nat really did form a band with his best friends, although they were called The Silver Boulders. In the same interview, Nat insisted that the storylines are all based on their real lives.
"It's all based on reality. It's not like work. It's things we might say or do or want to say or do. I like the feeling of creating something that wasn't there. If we have another season, I'm totally getting ideas," he said.
Since it's been a literal decade since the show aired on Nickelodeon, J-14 caught up with what each member is doing now. While you've definitely seen Nat acting in a slew of projects over the years, including Paper Towns, you may be wondering what happened to Allie DiMeco or how Qaasim Middleton's music career is going. Well, look no further! You're about to find out.
