Sacred Fire has burned up stages in northern California. Al Bruggman, a respected Santana style player at the helm, has brought professionalism by asking each player to reach higher levels. The performers, a list of who’s who in the Bay Area Latin Rock scene, are ex-members of Malo, Sapo, El Chicano, Jorge Santana and more. All have been marinated in Santana and Latin rock music their whole lives.
When performing, The Sacred Fire Band is family oriented.
