25 is a quarter of a century, remember being 25 or even turning 25? In human years it’s still a jol but not many bands can say “We have been making music for twenty-five years” unless you are WONDERboom.

The ‘WONDERbrothers’ from Johannesburg, Gauteng is showing no signs of stopping any time soon with the release of their brand new single “Prodigal Son”. Their chemistry, wit, talent and creative thoughts are of greatness that anyone can see and hear when you do find yourself in front of them.

In celebration of their 25th anniversary, the band have selected their favourite WB tracks, personally of course, and thus creating a compilation of songs which they called “WONDERboom 25”. From when they started back in the late 90’s to their latest single “Prodigal Son” it has been remastered.
