| Members | History |

The Phunk Junkeez founders, Kirk Reznik (a.k.a. "K-Tel Disco") and Joe Valiente ("Soulman"), "paid a fortune in dues together starting in 1985", when they started performing to prerecorded beats under the name "White Boy Rap", a name "Soulman" used for solo performances. Later as an opening act for such artists as MC Hammer and Run-D.M.C. That project turned into "BumRap" in 1987, followed by the "Phunk Junkeez" in 1990. The two rappers, Reznik and Valente, joined forces with another band, Freak Squad, in 1991, and later that year recycled DJ Roach Clip from their rap days. The band members included Jumbo Jim (bassist), Mike Kramer (guitarist), and Disco Danny Dynamite (a.k.a Disco Danny D, Disco Dan, DK Mueller) on drums. The Phunk Junkeez were a massively popular act in the Valley throughout the early '90s, playing huge, illegal warehouse keggers and routinely drawing more than 1,000 fans into clubs. DJs Soulman and Roach Clip are both natives of Alaska and grew up in the same trailer park, although never met in person until both had grown up and moved to Arizona.

In Mesa, Arizona at a September 24, 1993 concert at the Mesa Amphitheater (opening for Dada), Phunk Junkeez had to be pulled from the stage after playing for several minutes past the city curfew, despite the requests of the producer and threats of calling the police. The Phunk Junkeez would not allow the show's producer Brad Laughlin to interrupt the set. This forced the venue to shut off the PA. The band kept playing with only stage amplifiers and soon the lights were cut as well. Once back stage, the band's leader K-Tel Disco tossed tables and chairs and threatened the producers of the event, who left without paying the band. By then a large percentage of the audience left the venue, not wanting to see the mild pop of Dada, despite the popularity of their hit song "Dizz Knee Land". Earlier that day leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (and owners of the amphitheater) were having seminars at the near-by Sheraton hotel which overlooks the venue; during sound check the obscenities were loud enough that the band was banned from playing at Mesa Amphitheater for many years.[citation needed] They have played the venue at least twice since, the last time being with the Insane Clown Posse and 2 Live Crew in 2003.

The band released their self-titled debut-album in 1992. This album, was one of the most popular local releases from a Phoenix band in 1992 and 1993, and according to Zia Records music retailer it sold almost 30,000 copies in Phoenix alone.[citation needed] The Phunk Junkeez were signed to Trauma Records/Interscope Records releasing their second album,Injected (1995), nationwide. This release was recorded in Atlanta and produced by Angelo Moore of Fishbone and Ross Robinson (Korn, Slipknot, At the Drive-In). Injected produced a successful single, "I Love it Loud," which was played in rotation on alternative stations nationwide accompanied by a video featuring Chris Farley and David Spade, and was featured on the Tommy Boy soundtrack. "I Love it Loud" eventually reached a peak of 38 on the U.S. Billboard Music Charts. Another track from the album B-Boy Hard was featured on the soundtrack to National Lampoon's Senior Trip. Phunk Junkeez toured extensively at this time, playing with No Doubt, Bush, Faith No More, Ramones, KMFDM, and mostly with 311. The Phunk Junkeez were given a shout out in in the song "Jackolantern's Weather" from 311's self titled album released in 1995 as well as 311's "Misdirected Hostility" which was ironically written after 311 witnessed the level of disharmony among the junkeez, specifically a fight between Reznik and then guitarist Jeff O'Rourke, and a second brawl, later that same tour, next to the 311 dressing room between Reznik and Disco Danny D.

After numerous negative incidents between Reznik and the rest of the members over the next year, K-Tel Disco (Reznik) was forced out of the band by a unanimous 5 member vote. Reznik's relationship and engagement (they never married) with Soulman's ex girlfriend, while still in the band, also created heavy tension at rehearsal's, while touring, and in public appearances at that time. Officially, the band cited musical differences. According to Reznik, "Yes there were differences of opinion and musical Direction..." Reznik found out from the band's manager when the other band members stopped returning his calls that he was no longer in the band. Reznik was quoted as saying it was all handled "real shitty. but what could Joe have done, I had just gotten engaged to his girlfriend at the time. but its all good, I sued the band and won $5000." He also mentioned that in 1995 the band was experiencing difficulties with their recording label Trauma Records who had rejected all but 2 of 30 songs the band turned in and demanded that the band write 28 more "acceptable" songs or forfeit their record deal altogether. They ultimately kept their deal even after dismissing K-Tel. DJ Roach Clip told Phoenix New Times magazine that "[t]here were some personal issues (referring to the Reznik/Soulman's Girlfriend issue) I'm not going to go into it, but, yeah, the term 'artistic differences' would apply. He wanted things to be more punk agro. Now we're down to the core unit, this is what we all feel good with."

After the departure of Reznik, the band immediately toured and brought along a mobile recording studio to write their next album. Those ideas written on tour were the basis of Fear of a Wack Planet, released in 1998, which was recorded in Amsterdam and produced by Lee Popa, a clear side step from the previous releases by the band. At this point, the band began touring much more with such acts as, Incubus, Shootzy Groove, The Urge, Insane Clown Posse, Two Skinny J's, and Clutch. Jeff O'Rourke quit the band after the bulk of this touring to pursue a career in movies.

In 1999 Danny P filled the shoes of Jeff O'Rourke on guitar and the band began writing the next album right away. Danny P was the founding member of the local Phoenix band, Surf Ballistics. He was also known in the music scene to be the best guitarist in town. He himself was a long time fan of Phunk Junkeez and was very excited for the oppotunity to play in one of the most succesful bands in that town. The band has said he sparked the creativity for the next batch of records the band put out starting with Sex, Drugs and Rap N' Roll (2001). This was the release that marked the start of the band becoming more independent and underground, and also marked the first of the next three albums bassist Jumbo Jim took over as the bands recording engineer, in their own downtown Phoenix studio. New MC, Milky, (Soulmans little brother)also joined the band at this time to rap along side Roach and Soulman.

This release was produced and mixed by the late Grammy award-winning producer Jeff Poe (Carlos Santana, Madonna, Guns 'n' Roses). One of the singles off the album, "What's Next", featured a collaboration with Sen Dog of Cypress Hill.

After 11 years of touring, Disco Danny Dynamite quit the band following the release, and first tour, for this record. The Phunk Junkeez looked to replace him with the same caliber player. They did so by adding Steve "Dukes" Dueck. During the Sex, Drugs and Rap N' Roll tour they joined up with Suburban Noize Records while supporting Kottonmouth Kings for most of spring and summer of 2002. The band began to tour over 200 days a year on both major and secondary markets in support of this album. The Phunk Junkeez then signed a record deal with Suburban Noize and released their fifth album, Rock It Science, the following year. After tracking drums for this album, Dukes left the band for the time being (he returned in 2007) for family reasons, and was replaced by Money Mike on drums. This album was produced by Jumbo Jim and Soulman, recorded by Jumbo Jim, and mixed by Ken Mary. The songs, "Same Ole Song," and "Fall In Line," from Rock It Science appeared on the soundtrack to Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle. The band again toured extensively for this release. On August 23, 2007 the Phunk Junkeez released their most recent album entitled Hydro Phonic. This album, as well, was Produced by Jumbo Jim and Soulman, engineered by Jumbo Jim, and mixed by Ken Mary. Upon completing another tour of the U.S. and Japan, DJ Soulman struck out alone on a DJ tour of Japan. The Phunk Junkeez continue to play shows, but have thinned out their extensive touring to only play select cities and dates.

Jumbo Jim now owns and engineers out of Highland Recorders in downtown Phoenix. He produces and records numerous valley bands and hip hop artists, and recently mixed the DVD/CD "Live In Phoenix" for the multi platinum group Fall Out Boy.

Currently: Soulman is a local DJ at several high end clubs and resorts in the valley of the sun, Phoenix Arizona. Reznik's where a bouts are unknown. Jumbo Jim is still playing bass for the band and is a recording engineer at Highland Recorders in Arizona. DJ Roachclip can be seen around the local scene Dj'ing. Mike Kramer's where a bouts are unknown. Jeff O'Rourke owns a recording studio in Los Angeles California. Disco Danny D is the owner of a graphics and web design firm in Scottsdale Arizona.
