Gary "Gee" Kendall (Deceased) Ben "B-Tek" Chung (with Kinjaz) Chris "Cristyle" Gatdula Eddie "Eddie Styles" Gutierrez Saso "King Saso" Jimenez Randy "DJ Wish One" Bernal Tony "Transformer" Tran (with Kinjaz) They were initially formed by members Kevin "KB" Brewer, Phil "Swagger Boy" Tayag, & Joe "Punkee" Larot under the name "3 Muskee".
By 2004, their members included Ben "B-Tek" Chung, Chris "Cristyle" Gatdula, Rynan "Kid Rainen" Paguio, and Jeff "Phi" Nguyen. Phil "Swagger Boy" Tayag, Kevin "KB" Brewer, Joe "Punkee" Larot began performing as a trio called "Three Muskee" in Sacramento, California while wearing white masks and gloves.
"We want you to experience Jabbawockeez as a group and not just follow or be fans of one individual person. Our philosophy is that when you watch us perform, you have to watch us as a whole...
When we put [the masks] on, it's not about who we are or where we came from.
The mask and glove motif was adopted as a tribute to the 1970s San Francisco strutting crew Medea Sirkas.
Gary "Gee One" Kendall and Randy "DJ Wish One" Bernal were both members of the Mind Tricks dance crew who were active in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Both the Mind Tricks dance crew and the Three Muskee were friends and associates with each other.
Tayag, Brewer, and Larot all later moved to the San Diego area, and what began as an effort to start a Southern California chapter of the Mind Tricks crew later evolved into Jabbawockeez.
So why try to be a dance crew when more than half of the choreo is flipping and doing a trick?
