"The 402" was created in the Fall of 2013 with Eddie Brown who had formerly been the Front Man for "D*Funk Band" out of Lincoln, NE for the previous 10 years, and Chris Saub who has played with numerous groups over the years but his most recent band being "Envy" out of Omaha, NE on Guitar and some Vocals. The two guys met one another in 2012 and quickly realized a common good vibe. The meeting was arranged to take place between Lincoln and Omaha early September 2013 at "Round the Bend" in Ashland, NE which is a well known eatery. Eddie and Chris met for almost three hours discussing the vision of this new group, and left that meeting on fire to get started! That "vision" essentially was to create a group whose members had the talent to pull off any style of music their hearts would desire, and deliver those selections favorably to their audience.
