The Eli Young Band will be performing at Las Palmas Race Park in Mission on Dec. 29. The band has come a long way in their 10 short years together from performing gigs in college to having their own YouTube Channel.
Mike Eli, James Young, Jon Jones and Chris Thompson met while attending the University of North Texas in 1998 and 1999. The foursome were brought up surrounded by music and had high school bands. In college, they realized they all had music in common and started playing together. The group even included a couple of songwriters.
