Three Is A Magic Number

As I do at work when I'm trying to avoid work, I was playing a round of Really Tough Music Trivia Categories via email with a friend of mine today.

The only rule is that the person who starts the category must also throw out the first example. Then the first person to miss loses. We try to make the categories as tough as possible.

My category today was "Bands that have exactly three members - and all three members are somehow related. First answer: Hanson...Go." We were able to come up with The Jonas Brothers and The Bee Gees before giving up. Can you think of any other answers?

Sister Sledge?
The Pointer Sisters?

Marshall said...

"Sister Sledge" - Close, but there are actually 4 sisters in the group.

"The Pointer Sisters" - Correct! At one time, there were actually 5 Pointer Sisters, but only 3 currently in the group.

I'll have to let you know when we pick the next category.

Yes, those groups all have three members, but you missed the second requirement - "...and all three members are somehow related."
