Biography[Edit]Edit

In 1997 there was an ad placed in the English Theatre The Stagemagazine, in which young singers and dancers was asked to audition for a boy band. The Group would need to have a more "masculine" image than previous boys groups. Bob and Chris Herbert, the two men who had previously had formed the Spice Girls , thought it was time for a male group. 3,000 men were eventually reduced to five, then signed a contract with BMG/RCA.

Their first single, " Slam dunk (da funk), was released in november 1997. The Group remained below many other hit singles and three albums also appeared. They took three number-one hits in England. Their number of CDs sold worldwide is between 15 and 20 million estimated. Although there was a bold attempt to break through in America, had only one top 10 hit with 5ive When the lights go out.

The five members were Scott RobinsonRitchie NevilleJason ' J ' BrownAbs Breen and Sean Conlon.

The band, after the release of their third album, Kingon 27 september 2001 apart. In the same year he released a cd with musical highlights. About a year later began a solo career with the Abs album Abstract Theory. Three singles were released, which won all the Top 10 in England.

Exactly five years after the break-up of the band, on 27 september 2006, gave the (grown up and married boys) by 5ive Bar Academy Islington in a press conference in London in which four of the five former members (Scott Robinson, Richard Neville, Richard Breen and Jason Brown) after a break of five years announced a new start to want to go do with 5ive. Former band member Sean Conlon could be no longer: he was busy trying to get his solo career off the ground.

There was a tour planned for the new four-piece in 2007.

However, by the end of May 2007 they made known to part ways again and this time for good. Scott Robinson was the first following the publication of the news in the spotlight on a solo career, and because he was also the one who got the wrath of the fans over them. The main reason of the fracture, according to ex-band member J, was that record companies only if they saw their bread in them would continue to sing old hits, with no room for new material. In 2012 was nevertheless talked about a comeback. Only band member J wanted no part of the band. A replacement would be found for him. Expected to give the band a series of concerts in november and december 2013 (the Greatest Hits Tour). On April 12, 2014 gave the four-piece band in a gig in Hasselt on the event "I Love The 90 's" and on 30 August 2014 they performed in Nijmegen on during the same event.
