Sorry, there are no B5 dates.

B5 Biography

When B5 first back-flipped onto the music scene in 2005 young girls everywhere took one look at the handsome Breeding brothers and gasped with joy. Ranging in ages from 13 to 19 the brothers were the perfect package: good looking, talented, charming.

Dustin, 19, Kelly, 18, Patrick, 16, Carnell, 15, and Bryan 13, known collectively as B5, merge the old school flair and finesse of the Jackson Five with the modern day pop appeal of N'Sync and the raw energy of New Edition to create a musical phenomenon that carves a unique niche in the music industry.

Their self-titled debut CD was a top 20 hit on the Billboard 200 and peaked at number seven on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Chart. Their images graced fanzine covers month after month and they created a frenzy everywhere they went. They even caused the shut down of a Minneapolis mall when some 2000 fans rushed the stage during a free concert there.

As the boys spread their wings they are hoping that their fans will get to know them better. "People don't really know who we are; they don't know how we grew up," says Carnell as he explains that the five boys and their mother Adrian once shared a three-bedroom house with their grandmother, their aunt and nine other cousins. "People think we grew up in the suburbs and were pampered all our lives," says Kelly. "We had a hard life," says Dustin. "We grew up living off oranges and Ramen noodles, but we learned to work hard and be thankful because it could have been even worse."

Even though those days are long gone, the Breedings have never lost sight of their struggle or their identity. Now, they just want everyone else to see them clearly as well. And the baby of the brood, 13-year-old Bryan, brings it home: "I just want all the fans to be happy. I don't want to disappoint anyone. I just want everybody to hear it so they can know how we really feel."
