Men In Blaque was organized in 1997 by Joseph Huszti, Professor of Music at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). The members come from many professions and backgrounds including computer experts, dancers, business owners, clergy, schoolteachers and undergraduate musicians.

Dressed primarily in black, but often incorporating energetic dances or ingenious props, the group engages audiences with performances that encompass a wide spectrum of quality sacred and secular music.
