Sacred Ground


Vocalist - General, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Piano.


Sacred Ground was formed back in 2001 in houston Texas and has been rocking for over 10 years. A Sacred Ground rock concert is about vibrations and stimulations - sound that is - like a roller coaster ride on top of a giant speaker. Driven by passion and determination for great music and great sound while having fun, this band does just that, primarily through musical tactics like: state-of-the-art equipment; exciting lights and effects, and precision, rocking audiences at the club level to larger arenas.

Sacred Ground is a modern, hard rocking band whose music genre encompasses a full spectrum of originals and covers, from soft ballads to hard pounding rock; including classics from the 70s, metals of the 80s, alternatives from the 90s, and mixing it up with today's music.

Band members are seasoned musicians based in Houston. Lead guitarist, David Mena, is a musical storm-trooper with piano, guitar, and bass experiences spanning three decades and is the band/site creator, webmaster, song writer, and studio owner/producer, sharing the equipment responsibilities with sound engineer David Stojan.The band would not be complete without the musical arsenal and talents found throughout its members, the backbone of which is the syncopated and dynamic drummer, Bryan Deutsch, complimented by the steadfast smooth sounds of bassist Faron Young, plus rocking rhythms and leads, as well as, vocals from guitarist Michael Maker. But the icing on the cake is vocalist extraordinaire, Bruce Knutson - just wait until you hear him sing - plus he writes songs and plays guitar too.
