Eli Young Band to South Dakota State Fair
So, these guys were going to school at University of North Texas, (Denton, TX) and their in the dorm room one night. They start kickin’ things around and decide to start a band. According to Wikipedia,
Mike Eli and James Young met at the University of North Texas where they became dorm roommates their freshman year. They played guitar and eventually began writing and singing songs together; they formed the acoustic duo, Eli & Young,
So, you see, it hasn’t really happened over night. But they kept at it. Writing and touring. Touring and Writing and now their journey has led them to our state for our fair.
You can can see The Eli Young Band in concert Saturday August 31st in the grandstand at this years South Dakota State Fair. Opening for Eli Young Band is The Casey Donahew Band who also come from ‘Red Dirt Country.’ We’ve done a little checking on the Casey Donahew Band, we think that South Dakota is going to hear them and like them. A Lot!
Enjoy what’s left of summer and enjoy the music in the grandstand at this years South Dakota State Fair. I wanted to give you a little bit of a sample of what you’re going to see at the concert. From what I’ve seen and played on Kickin’ Country, it looks like we’re going to be in for a great night of music. (Better get those beer sales people lined up at the show. I think they’ll be busy.)
