Joe Jonas is asking fans of DNCE to help a tour manager who’s worked with the group. According to Joe and the other members of the band, Dan Lipski is “badly inured” after a “terrible accident” in Bangkok, Thailand and friends are trying to crowdfund his recovery in a Thai hospital. Posts from Joe, Cole Whittle, JinJoo Lee, Jack Lawless and Sophie Turner all plead for support.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner celebrated their engagement with a star-studded party on Saturday night in New York City. The pair rented out a local restaurant for a dinner followed by an afterparty of sorts with dancing, champagne and sparklers.
Tom Petty, the classic rock sensation with a professional career that spanned close to 50 years, passed away on Monday. Reports indicate that Tom passed at UCLA’s Santa Monica hospital after being brought in due to cardiac arrest. He was with friends and family.
The death has left many musicians mourning in the wake of his passing. Among them are Niall Horan, whose own singer-songwriter style owes a lot to predecessors like Tom. American stars were just as sad to hear of his passing.
Joe Jonas is bringing the rest of DNCE to Los Angeles for an exciting new gig. The band is headed to a grand re-opening for the Westfield Century City mall on Tuesday, which has been going through a $1 billion re-development project. DNCE will be joined by Fitz and the Tantrums and two other “surprise acts.”
DNCE is going back to school in a sketch from Funny or Die. The band teamed up with comedian Jimmy Tatro for a hysterical video about what it would be like to have to share a college dorm room with Joe Jonas, Cole Whittle, JinJoo Lee and Jack Lawless. The group once again turned to its biggest hit for a literal garbage joke in the short film, but Joe also took the chance to fake some sentimentality.
DNCE landed the September cover of Hong Kong’s #legend magazine. The quirky bandmates discussed everything from inspirations and influences—mainly Prince and other heroes who aren’t so much musicians, but rather their own “world for an hour,” according to Cole Whittle—to the power of technology and who they’ve set their eyes on for next year’s dream collaboration.
While DNCE was able to work with Nicki Minaj this year on “Kissing Strangers,” a few different artists could be in the works for the band’s next collaboration.
“Oh, man, how can we top this year with Nicki Minaj?” Jack pondered. “Maybe Paul McCartney or Jeff Lynne?”
Jack, Cole, Joe Jonas and JinJoo Lee also spent a lot of time gushing over a few K-pop artists. So if they can’t snag Paul or Jeff, they might have a solid alternative in store.
