Boys Club was a Pop duo consisting of Gene Hunt and Joe Pasquale from Minneapolis, Minnesota that had a big hit with "I Remember Holding You" in 1989, which peaked at #8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Throughout the greater part of Minnesota, Boys Club was also regarded as "Minnesota's version of Wham!".
In radio interviews conducted during the height of their success both Hunt and Pasquale stated that one of their primary musical influences was George Michael, and more specifically, the work Michael did during the Wham! years. "The way he arranged songs and melodies was quite unique and we tried to emulate that with our own music," Hunt was quoted as saying during one of those early interviews.
Boys Club was the first group to appear on the New Mickey Mouse Club as a musical guest during the first episode.
In 1990, Hunt briefly reunited with The Jets to record four new tracks for The Best of The Jets (1990). He was featured on the cover and inside album sleeve, and he appeared in the "Special Kinda Love" music video.
