TIMELINE

98 Degrees button.gif (123 bytes) The quartet 98 Degrees consists of brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre, and Jeff Timmons. 98 Degrees joined the ranks of the rising pop 'boy-band' sensations such as the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync in the late 1990s with their good looks and talent for harmonizing. Jeff Timmons, born in Ohio on April 30, 1973, studied psychology at Kent State before moving to Los Angeles in hopes of an entertainment career. Timmons was the catalyst of the group, gradually bringing in other vocalists until the current line-up was conceived. Nick Lachey, born in Kentucky on November 9, 1973, was the second member to come aboard permanently, and the link to the remaining members, his friend and brother. Nick's friend, Justin Jeffre, born in Michigan on February 25, 1973, left his studies at the University of Cincinnati to join the group. Nick's brother, Drew Lachey, born in Ohio on August 8, 1976, joined the group to replace a departing member and left an EMT job in New York City to complete the 98 Degrees roster. The group officially was discovered while attending a Boyz II Men and eventually catching the eye (and ear) of Montell Jordan's co-manager who helped them record a demo. The band then signed with Motown Records in 1996.
