The 502’s were a smashing success when some of your ACMA buds saw them at Stringbreak Music Fest. This orlando based indie band promptly applied to play the ACMA and received 6 big thumbs up from your music committee. Fresh, young and energetic the 502’s will bring you to your feet and leave you smiling. But..lest you think they are just a “party band”, I’m here to tell you that their songs are thoughtful, well written and have meaning. After all, our very selective music committee was unanimous about bringing them to the ACMA
Here’s a bit more!
