When it comes to party, LMFAO have the knack for it Stefan Kendal Gordy and Skyler Husten Gordy had been experimental Djs before they decided to go professional. Their hunt for a moniker ended up with an iChat text from their grandmother who responded to their choice of name, Sexy Dudes. Grandma Godfoot replied, "LMFAO".
Formed officially in Los Angeles in 2006, Redfoo and SkyBlu are the youngest son and grandson of Motown record label founder, Berry Gordy.
