Eli Young Band Special Performance at Alma Mater

February 10th, 2017 Posted in Alumni News

BandIn 2000 while attending the University of North Texas, four students came together to share a passion for music and live performance. Eli Young Band was born and catapulted from playing in Denton venues to sold-out crowds drawn to their unique contemporary country sound. With three No. 1 hits, a Grammy nomination and an Academy of Country Music Award for Song of the Year, Eli Young Band is returning to where their journey began for a special concert at Apogee Stadium on March 25.

Chris Thompson (’04), Jon Jones (’04), James Young (’02) and Mike Eli (’04) share a camaraderie that bonds them as bandmates, friends, and UNT alumni. Amidst the opportunities they received at UNT, the group established a lasting friendship that continues to fuel their creativity and success. Eli Young Band recently released their single “Saltwater Gospel” and are currently touring around the nation.

Eli Young Band were invited as distinguished guests for the Wingspan Gala 2017 on March 25. Following the gala, Eli Young Band will play an exclusive concert for UNT students, faculty, staff, UNT Alumni Association members and their guests in Apogee Stadium with an opening act beginning at 8:30 pm.
