The name of this group, Jabbawockeez, is from the famous poem by Lewis Carroll titled as Jabberwocky in which he relates the story of a fictional dragon from mythology. Prior to performing on America
’s Best Dance Crew, several members from Jabbawockeez met up and started performing together. Phil Tayag, Joe Larot and Kevin Brewer met up and formed the group Three Musky. They started performing in Sacramento
while wearing gloves and white masks in remembrance of Medea Sirkas, a popular San Francisco
group of the 60s. the group performed many freestyle dance skits as well as hip hop with the band adopting the gloves and white masks as a signature style. Soon after, new members were added to the group. These were Rynan Paguio, Chris Gatdula, Jeff Nguyen, Ben Chung, Eddie Gutierrez and Saso Jimenez.
By 2004, Jabbawockeez were performing as a group made up of eleven members. They performed at many venues with many of the band members forming up other dance outfits such as Boogie Monstarz, SuperGalacticBeatManipulators and Press P.L.A.Y. These three groups and Jabbawockeez occasionally form up to perform as the Family Royale, a larger dance group at many performances. Jabbawockeez also managed to have regular shows in the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino in the city of Las Vegas
