Founding members Amy Sumpter, Kendra Stevens and Maggie Tomasek first met through the Chicago comedy scene, and soon discovered their shared love of the Beastie Boys. For two years, they kicked around the idea of starting an all-female B-Boys tribute, but after the passing of Adam "MCA" Yauch on May 4, 2012, they knew it was time to make it happen. Erica Reid a.k.a. DJ ENRG joined the band in 2014.
