As schoolchildren, the brothers drew the attention of the owner of Columbia Records studio. He had listened to their home record, and then offered an advantageous contract. A fateful track was the song "Please Be Mine." Having signed the contract, the guys began to think over the name of their band. Initially, they wanted to call it "Sons of Jonas" but after a short consideration, they came to the conclusion that "Jonas Brothers" would sound much better.
