The band's ministry began as an outreach project of Bittersweet Ministries, as a tool to reach out to young people to combat a drug and alcohol culture, and now it touches on a variety of justice issues, and it serves as a ministry of spiritual renewal. Gilbert Romero and Scott Duffey write most of their music. More info can be found at bittersweetgospelband.blogspot.com and on Facebook.
