In the 90's, every teenaged girl's life revolved around Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync and their world of Boy Bands. Every country in the world wanted a bite of the Boy Band success cake, and Israel was no different. In 1996, Hi Five was formed, filling playlists with light pop songs with soft words about love, while combining smooth dance moves. 

Members of the band, Amir Faye Guttman, Eyal Shahar, Michael Harpaz (who left in 1999), Idan Yaskin and Eyal Dassau became big stars as sounds of screaming girls followed them everywhere.

The band broke up in 2000, leaving hundreds of thousands of crying fans, and leaving behind five albums and more than a few hit songs. Tune in and get ready to party!
