(AUDIO) Eli Young Band Count On The Crowd For A Great Show

July 21, 2013

The Eli Young Band will play for over a million fans this summer on the No Shoes Nation Tour with Kenny Chesney, not to mention their solo shows that they’re playing in between, and they say the success of a show depends largely on the crowd. “We can get up there and we can perform all we want and we can give it all we’ve got, but if that energy is not reflecting back from the crowd, it would be really tough,” says Mike Eli. “That’s when it becomes work, you know what I mean?” Fortunately, the fans have been very enthusiastic, especially about their new single, “Got A Little Drunk Last Night.” Mike says, “They sing those songs back to us and that energy just kind of explodes.”

Mike - “It’s addicting, and that energy…we can get up there and we can perform all we want and we can give it all we’ve got, but if that energy is not reflecting back from the crowd, it would be really tough. That’s when it becomes work, you know what I mean? But we’ve been really lucky to have fans that get into the show, and they sing those songs back to us and that energy just kind of explodes for that two hours of that show, you know?”
