They came together in common city where none of them were born, but all of them seemed destined to live. JC Chasez came to Orlando, Florida to do a television show on the Disney Channel called the Mickey Mouse Club. During the first year that he was there, he met Joey Fatone through a mutual friend and started hangin' out with him. Two years after JC started doing MMC, they added seven new cast members, one of whom was Justin Timberlake. JC and Justin worked together in several music numbers on the show and discovered that they had nice musical blend. In the mean time, Joey was busy going to school, doing plays and musicals, and landing a job at Universal Studios where he met another extremely musically talented employee named Chris Kirkpatrick. Well, after 2 years, MMC ceased production, but by that time JC and Justin were bitten by the showbiz bug and they knew that they had to find another project to work on. They were working with the same vocal coach and writer in Nashville, Tennessee on separate projects when Justin was called to audition for a group, back in Orlando. That group didn't work out, but he befriended Chriss Kirkpatrick. While he was there, the guys got together for a night on the town. At a local dance club, Chris and JC ran in to their old friend Joey and introduced him to Justin. The guys clicked instantly. In fact, they were so good together on the dance floor that everyone wanted to know what group they were in. Well, the seed had been planted. They got together to harmonize a little and check out their sound and of course it was the perfect blend. The only thing that was missing was a good bass voice. The guys began to look around for a perfect person to round out the group. They checked out local high schools, and churches for choir members before Justin decided to call up an old vocal coach of his in Memphis, who he knew coaches several guys. He said that he only knew one person which was Lance "Lansten" Bass. And the rest is HisTory!!
