Cende formed in 2013 when Dave Medina, Cameron Wisch, and Greg Rutkin graduated college and moved into David Blaine's The Steakhouse. After bonding over their love for the classic 1996 film "That Thing You Do", they decided that they too would start a band and take over the world. Soon after Bernard Casserly (Normal Person) was added to the lineup. His epic bass playing and good looks immediately brought the band to the level of "world class" with many referring to the group as "LITERALLY the best band besides Porches, Pile, Ovlov, and Krill."
