Eli Young Band Tonight At CSC

CHADRON – The Eli Young Band performs tonight at Chadron State College, a concert postponed from October by a blizzard. The concert begins at 7:30 in the Nelson Physical Activities Center.

The group began when Mike Eli and James Young became roommates as freshmen at the University of North Texas. They both played guitar and they eventually began writing and singing songs together as the acoustic duo Eli & Young.

Bass guitarist Jon Jones and drummer Chris Thompson soon joined them to form the Eli Young Band and released their self-titled debut album in 2002. Chadron Chamber of Commerce Director Gabby Michna is expecting a great show.
