The group was created and produced by brothers Mindaugas and Gintaras Bendžius. Members of the group Rima Petrauskytė, Viktorija (Vika) Perminaitė and Asta Bridikytė were selected after a special competition, organised by Bendžius brothers and composer Žilvinas Liulys.[1] In 2004, Bridikytė left the group and was replaced by Lina Kaklytė.[3] The band announced its retirement in 2007 with a release of the third compilation of its best songs and a good-bye tour across Lithuania, including special appearances for Lithuanian communities in England, Ireland, and United States, with the final concert on March 31, 2008 in Šiauliai Arena. They came back from retirement in 2014 with two new group members.[2] In 2016, Justina Jančiauskaitė left the group and was replaced by Justina Dovydenė[citation needed]
