On Bended Knee was formed by several members of the worship band at a small church in East Los Angeles Ca. called "Church on Brady" in 1995. Also known locally by OBK, their unique blend of Rock infused, crowd pleasing musical grooves and soaring vocal harmonies became a favorite on the local music scene. Striking while the iron was hot and with God's blessing, they took the ministry on the road and began performing at various youth events as well as well known secular musical venues such as: House of Blues, The Whiskey A Go Go, The Key Club, Universal Citywalk and many others
Over the years, OBK has had the honor of releasing several successful CD's including: Through the Fire, Trust and Feels Like Sunday (available at cdbaby.com) In 2009, they were included in a Compilation CD entitled "So Cal Metal Meltdown" (Neurotic Records), which contained music from the best Metal and Hard Rock bands in California. This CD was released nationwide and is available at all Target Stores, Hot Topic and 7-11's.
While membership has changed over the years, Phil Lugo and Ron Ruiz have been there from the beginning. Former line ups have included: Gary Wilson, Frank Loaiza, Gil Oyola, Enrique Vasques, Chris Wills, Manny Castro, Bobby H.Q. Storm and Tony Reed.
