Kevin Jonas is the most ancient member of the Jonas Brothers, the pop-rock band made famous on the Disney Channel. Kevin and his brothers Joe (b. 1989) and Nick (b. 1992) made their first Disney appearance in 2007 on an episode of the Hannah Montana show, not long after signing a recording contract with Disney's Hollywood Records label. The next year they starred in the made-for-Disney movie Camp Rock (with another newcomer, Demi Lovato), and the film made them stars. Kevin plays guitar and sings backup, is (barely) the tallest brother, and is generally regarded as the grown-up in the band. Their albums include It's About Time (2006), Jonas Brothers (2007) and A Little Bit Longer (2008).

Kevin's father is known as Kevin Sr. A former Assembly of God minister, he later became a manager for the band... Kevin also has a fourth brother, Frankie, born in 2000... Kevin is 18 days younger than actor Zac Efron. He was also born the same year as Barney the Dinosaur and the California Raisins.
