“Five Forty 2 LIVE! Modern grunge/alternative/ Just Plain Kick-ass, from Huntington, W.V. "…5:42 fits the scene, like rivets to sheet metal! Eric and I arrived a bit early and found ourselves a seat with the guys from In the Company of Wolves and the place was getting packed already. "So this is where all you, Ohio party animals hang out?!?!" First up was Five Forty 2, kicking off with one of their popular radio songs "Shame" (the song that drew my attention to them months earlier on X106.3/107.1) Lead vocalist/guitarist Stephen Sanders, is very accomplished and proved he can dish out the same caliber of performance live, as on their CD. Wow! This band really understands pleasing the crowd! Bang Bang, was most likely the crowd favorite song from them. This song speaks volumes about their humorous side and speaks more about the musical abilities of this West Virginia 3 piece band! ”
