Saturday Night Country: Eli Young Band takes the stage in Velva

Submitted Photo With nearly 20 years of country classics, the Eli Young Band will perform its newest smash hit “Saltwater Gospel” at the Velva Saddle Club on Saturday.

Saturday night, country music royalty will grace the stage of the Velva Saddle Club, as the Eli Young Band performs smash hits from their latest album “Fingerprints.”

With doors opening at 6 p.m. and showtime beginning at 8 p.m., the Grammy Award-winning troupe looks forward to energizing crowds with their country classics “Drunk Last Night,” “Even if it Breaks Your Heart” and “Crazy Girl.”

In addition to their stadium anthem sensations, “Fingerprints” is an emotional tour de force that features passionate lyrics, spirited vocals and dynamic musicianship.

Across the country, audiences have embraced the zeal of “Saltwater Gospel” while discovering the romance of “Never Land,” before feeling the high-octane fury of “Fingerprints” and the romantic complications of “Never Again.”

From top to bottom, “Fingerprints” is driven with relatable stories and heartfelt emotions.

Mike Eli, the lead singer of the country quartet, expressed great excitement about their current tour along with the light shows displayed during performances.

Today, the Eli Young Band remains proud of their personal friendships, fans and continued reputation as must-see performers.

With the release of their sixth album “Fingerprints,” Eli describes the renewed energy and excitement felt by fellow bandmates.

“The sense of renewed energy feels good,” Eli said. “In some ways, being together for 17 years can be compared to being in a marriage. Sometimes you can get into ruts and there will be moments when you need to feel like its new again. As a band, I feel like this is where we are. After 17 years together, we feel like what we’re doing is new again. We’re falling in love all over again with making music and creating songs.”

After earning the top spot on the iTunes Country Charts, “Fingerprints” continues to garner industry acclaim including nominations for Country Music Television Group of the Year and the Academy of Country Music Award Vocal Group of the Year.
