911

About 911

Formed in the North of England by Lee Brennan, Jimmy Constable and Simon “Spike” Dawbarn, 911 were one of the UK’s most popular boy bands of the 1990s.

Dawbarn and Constable were dancers on the ITV music show The Hit Man and Her, presented by Peter Waterman and Michaela Strachan, in the late 80s-early 90s. Another dancer on the show was Jason Orange, who went on to be a member of boy band Take That. Wanting to have a successful pop career of their own, Dawbarn and Constable recruited Lee Brennan and they set about building up a fanbase.

With the help of Scottish songwriter John McLaughlin, 911 quickly became UK chart heavyweights. Their largest fanbase, however, was in East Asia, particularly in Taiwan and Malaysia.

In 2000, after three albums and ten UK top 10 hits, 911 decided to call it a day. Dawbarn and Brennan left it to Constable to announce the news live on Chris Moyles' drivetime show on BBC Radio 1.

In 2012, 911 and a series of other popular bands from the 1990s and early 2000s reunited for the ITV2 reality-documentary series, The Big Reunion.
