SACRED GROUND was formed back in 2001 and has been rocking for nearly 10 years. A SACRED GROUND concert is about vibrations and stimulations – sound that is – like a roller coaster ride on top 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 execution rocking audiences at the club level to larger arenas.

SACRED GROUND has plenty of experience sharing the stage with national acts such as Axe, Pat Travers, Rick Derringer, Simon Wright formerly with AC/DC, Greg T. Walker of Blackfoot, Warrant, Bobby Rock, Slaughter, and has hosted the Westheimer Street Festival for a number of years featuring dozens of local bands. They have also performed and played a number of events for Houston’s Rock DJ’s Outlaw Dave and Jim Pruett.
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 70’s, metals of the 80’s, alternatives from the 90’s, mixing it up with today’s bump-n-grind and high energy. Band members are seasoned musicians based in Houston.
SACRED GROUND’S 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; who is brilliant with sound and electrical component integration, and who also has decades of experience both locally and on the road. His live impromptu sound mixing techniques have earned him the trademark nickname “Stojan Sound”. But 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 Danny Young, complimented by the steadfast smooth sounds of bassist Faron Young, rocking rhythms and leads from the newest edition to the group, welcome back guitarist Paul Roland, 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.
