Many artists have rituals or superstitions they must do before hitting the stage. But the Eli Young Band doesn’t reach for a certain drink, listen to a favorite song or recite a chant. Their pre-show tradition is simple.
“I think the most important thing for us is we try to gather as the four of us before the show and really have some quiet time together and get our brains in the same place so that when we walk on that stage, that comes out in shows to the crowd,” Mike Eli explained. “You know, that we’re this one group and we’re all on the same wavelength.”
Eli Young Band will be found huddling up together before shows on Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Nation Tour this coming summer. They just released their new video, “Say Goodnight.” Watch the sci-fi tinged clip HERE.
