Error 504, comprised of vocalist Dayne Sauder, lead guitarist Alex Mayer, drummer Kevin Cuthbertson, bassist Jon Banks, and rhythm guitarist Ryan Zellner, is characterized by their hard rock riffs, groovy drum and bass, squealing solos, all topped off with gritty, melodic vocals. Besides their main online presence on www.facebook.com/error504band and http://www.reverbnation.com/error504, the band is centered mainly in their hometown of Mansfield and adopted home-base in Columbus, Ohio. The band, aged 18-21, has been described as such:
“[They] worked the crowd like true professionals.” – examiner.com
"Error 504- It's more than a band...it's an ATTITUDE!!" – Mid Ohio Rock Show
“Error 504 has come a long way since the Lucas Talent Show…” – Mansfield News Journal
“[One of] Columbus’ best local bands…” – The Alrosa Villa.
Several thousands of views on Youtube, a fledgling iTunes presence, and over 2,000 likes on Facebook, with posts reaching nearly 40,000 people, means Error 504’s market has only room to grow. The band’s main selling point is that “we play music that we’d enjoy listening to. Catchy choruses, groovy riffs, and red-hot solos are what we’re into, so that’s what we write.” Also a perk, the tour ready group (equipped with their own means of travel and road-worthy equipment) is no stranger to the road, having spent much time on I-71 travelling back and forth from Columbus to Cleveland and everything in between; not to mention an Ohio-Indiana-Washington D.C.-South Carolina tour circuit upcoming for summer 2013.
With the release of their newest single "Whiskey Runnin'" and closing in on 1000 copies the “Error 504 EP 2013” floating around the Mansfield/Columbus area and airtime on 99.7 The Blitz, Spotify, and 88.9 ClassXRadio, while playing with acts such as Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Korn, Lamb of God, Steel Panther, Papa Roach, and Three Days Grace, Error 504 is ready to take the next step toward success: Getting signed and touring their asses off to spread their name from local heavyweight to national talent.
