Hollywood Records recording phenomenon, Jonas Brothers, and Gibson Guitar, the worldâ€™s premier musical instrument maker and leader in music technology, announced that they will partner on the next Jonas Brothers CD as they tour the U.S. aboard the Gibson Tour Bus. Jonas Brothersâ€™ self titled album recently debuted at # 5 on the Billboard Top 200, and is RIAA certified gold. The CD was the first to be released in the CDVU+ format, a multi-media and 100 % recyclable package. Their single S.O.S., shot straight to the top of iTunes, was added to MTV, and is currently on over 100 Top 40 stations. Jonas Brothers will be recording their next album on a state-of-the art Gibson Tour Bus during the West Coast leg as special guests of the Miley Cyrus/ Hannah Montana â€œBest of Both Worldsâ€ tour. Beginning November 1, Jonas Brothers are also performing several â€œshow after the showâ€ dates as a special gesture to their fans who canâ€™t get tickets to the sold out â€œBest of Both Worldsâ€ tour. Special performances will be produced in Nashville and Memphis where young fans will be given the opportunity to enter to win their place at a private meet and greet at Gibson Showrooms. All details will be announced on the Gibson website at www.gibson.com. A new website www.bandinabus.com has been set up for fans to get messages from Jonas Brothers from the bus, as well to announce where fans can find Jonas Brothers on the bus.
Jonas Brothers will record on the high-tech tour bus, fully equipped with state of the art recording equipment.
