Rudy’s passion for music began when he first picked up an old dusty guitar at age 15. In 1978, he gave his life to the Lord and began playing in Christian bands. Rudy is currently the lead singer and guitarist of ‘The Benavidez Band,’ a committed group of Christian musicians who play a variety of styles. The band plays at churches and other venues like coffee shops, festivals, outreaches, and car shows. They especially love to go to missions and prisons to perform and share the gospel through their music.
