The group released their “Some West Coast Praise” Album in 2008 and their debut performance was held at Bible Faith Church Int’l, Oakland, California and since then, they have performed at different musical celebration and events at the Greater House of Prayer, Prayer Tower Temple COGIC, New Greater Mount Calvary COGIC and New Testament COGIC in Oakland, California, McGlotten Temple, Richmond, California and several other churches in many different counties.
The group released their new EP “Is Anything Too Hard for God?”, and has been performing at many events.

In 2010, the band auditioned at the Ethnic Dance Festival with Alexandria and Ruth D’Souza Dance Company and in 2012 also performed at the Zellerbach, Berkeley, California.

The group is currently working on a new album and will be performing at Tabernacle of Praise on April 29, and will continue to minister throughout the year, Lord willing. We are truly grateful to God for the blessings.
Using one word to describe a band would usually be challenging, but with B.F.R. it is easy. That one word is “unconventional”. The innovative repertoire is unconventional. The instrumentation, the arrangements, and the stage presentation are all unconventional. In the spirits of Johann Sebastian Bach, Thomas Dorsey, Sam Cooke, and Andrae Crouch, this band will CHANGE conventions, traditions and customs while keeping the pure Gospel message completely intact. Here, musical instruments from the world over are used in obedience to Psalms’ command “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!”
