Members included Josue, Caleb (also a former member of MDO/Menudo) and Joel (now solo on McGillis Records). The group was born when thousands of teenage Puerto Ricans auditioned for a part of a new music group even before a name was selected. Darrin McGillis traveled from Mayaguez to Ponce and back to San Juan, Puerto Rico seeking three talented youths for the group. Joel was the only member that did not answer the advertisements seeking members of a new group.
Josue who had been the first member selected for the group suggested Joel. At the time Joel was in Tampa, Florida, performing at the Puerto Rican festival. Darrin McGillis traveled with Joel's mother to Tampa to audition him. When Joel began to sing it was an instant yes.
The last member Caleb was selected much later, in fact Joel and Josue had already started recording several songs for the CD. Caleb brought a different unique image to the line up. Josue was the only member who arrived in the group with previous professional experience in the entertainment business he was also two years older than Caleb and Joel. The name of the group was selected by chance. While auditioning a singer in Puerto Rico his younger brother asked if we had a name for the group yet.
Darrin McGillis replied "not yet" and asked if he had any suggestions? McGillis informed the youngster that he wanted a name that would be the same in English as in Spanish. The boy replied instantly "Explosion". The first CD of Explosion was written and produced by Papo Gely the force behind Menudo's greatest hits. As you can see below Explosion has plans to continue to take music industry by storm.
