Eli Young Band performs Dec. 29 at Las Palmas

EliYoungBand_PopThe 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.

Mr. Hodgson brings 'Grease' to the stage - again

20101201_VMHS_Grease_DressRehearsal_0193The Veterans Memorial High School (VMHS) Harlequin Drama Club has rehearsed, studied the movie, the characters, and the play performed eight years ago. Now they are ready for lights to shine bright on the stage as they perform “Grease” to a full house for the second time tonight.

Eight years ago, under the tutelage of drama teacher James Hodgson, the Harlequin’s performed “Grease” in the gym. There was no real stage, and they were very limited to props and how much space they had.

Hodgson said the productions finally feel more normal now that they can be performed in the auditorium that was built a few years ago.
