Show Summary

Real-life brothers Nat and Alex Wolff set out to prove that rock and roll isn't just for adults in this rock-mockumentary parody, with songs composed by the Wolff brothers themselves. As for being based on real life, the series is created by the siblings mom, Polly Draper ("thirtysomething" actress), who also serves as head writer, executive producer, and director. Draper's husband and Nat and Alex's dad, jazz pianist Michael Wolff (bandleader of "The Arsenio Hall Show") stars as his boys' accordion playing dad, who also serves as the music producer/supervisor. The path to superstardom is a long, difficult one. The cameras follows Nat and Alex throughout their concerts, their rehearsals, and their private lives, as they deal with the growing pains related to love, friendship, and fame. Do the boys have what it takes to make it in the music business? By the music business we mean The Naked Brothers Band consisting of Nat and Alex Wolff, Thomas Batuello, Allie DiMeco (as Rosalina), David Levi, Qaasim Middleton, Cooper Pillot as the band's manager, and Jesse Draper as their babysitter.

    • Just throwing my thoughts out there!!!!

      7.0
      I remember the Naked Brothers Band first came out when I was in fourth grade. I was a fan of them from that time until towards the end of my fifth grade year. Then I outgrew it and I hated them for a while. Now I'm sort of in the middle. I'm not a huge fan of them like I was when I was a kid, but on the other hand I don't hate them. Nowadays I just like to revisit their stuff every now and then because it brings back memories. Three things I wanna discuss are their band name, their music, and their show. The band name, not digging it so much. To be fair, I understand that Nat and Alex got it from a childhood memory of being "the Naked Brothers Band" in their bathtub, so I guess it's of sentimental value to them. But still, I don't think it's an appropriate name for a band or a show. Some people may get it, having heard the backstory, but it will not be well received by most people. Their music, some of their songs are okay, some of them not so much. Songs like Long Distance Relationships, Catch Up With the End, Everybody's Cried at Least Once, and several others like those three are good. I like the melody, rhythm and emotion put into those songs but some of them are a bit too repetitive for my liking. Other than that, those songs are good. Other songs like Banana Smoothie, Taxi Cab, and Crazy Car I don't like so much because the lyrics are weird and don't make sense. Their show, I'm not going to lie, the plot lines for their show episodes are VERY interesting. Even though a lot of it is drama filled, I've got to admit, it's VERY interesting. I like seeing what Nat, Alex, Rosalina, and everyone else are going through together. I like seeing them socialize and have fun together. My overall opinion of the Naked Brothers Band, they're alright. They're not spectacular (I've seen better bands and musicians) but they're not all that bad either. I like that Nat and Alex are still performing together, although pretty much everyone else in the Naked Brothers Band has gone their separate ways. I have listened to Nat and Alex's Black Sheep album recently and it's really good. I think if they had more songs like those on their Black Sheep album when they were on the Naked Brothers Band (and perhaps a different band name than that one) then they would have been a lot more successful. It's a shame they didn't have a mentor at the time to take them under their wing and help them with songwriting, acting and stuff. But in spite of that, they were decent (strong in some areas, weak in some areas).moreless
    • THIS is the reason why Television SUCKS nowadays!

      1.0
      I was never interested in this show, and knew this was when TV was going to become CRAPPY! Ever since then, Nickelodeon did NOT learn from this!
    • Beggining of the end

      6.0
      It is just entertaining. It is not funny and has some of the lamest things I've ever seen but at least it's watchable and better than crap like Big time rush (NBB music wasn't bad)

      I forgot all about them until recently I saw an episode and said to myself I should watch some more, as this was one of the shows I watched as a child. Now that I'm older I can get some "inappropiate" scenes but that's about it as comedy goes. Either way, it's not bad nor good, it's one of those shows you watch when there is nothing else on .

      As a side note, this was the beggining of the end for Nickelodeon.moreless

      I've barely got anything to mention because I've barely stuck with this show. at the age of 12 u may experience love but even though i'm only 13 I've got to say u don't know what love is.... SO STOP ACTING LIKE U DO NAKED BROTHERS BAND. if my mind caught any footage of this show it would probably be the music video 'face in the hall' ik it's not much but I can clearly tell this is uninspiring, laughably bad, and lacking knowledge. it's hard to take this crap seriously when u've got a bunch of kids in a band with an unappealing title acting like know-it-alls with love. the humor is lacking but if u dig for that tv gold u may get a chuckle. this show lead to the trend of bad live-action nick shows about famous, bratty and/or stupid teens who'll go all out to either complain or fix minor, minor flaws in their perfect lives. uhh.... byemoreless
