Eli Young Band Dish on ‘Big Celebration’ for James Young’s Wedding
Earlier this year, Eli Young Band guitarist James Young was the final member of the group to walk down the aisle and say “I do.” Young wed his sweetie in an intimate outdoor ceremony on Feb. 4, with his fellow bandmates close by his side.
“It was great,” Young tells Taste of Country of his big day. “It was awesome. Luckily the weather cooperated. The weather was nice. I had all the band and crew there and all our close friends. It was really just a big celebration.”
“We were at all four of our weddings and wedding celebrations,” adds EYB’s bassist, Jon Jones. “At this point, we have all the same friends, so it’s like we share friends and family, too. It was special for all of us because we’ve been in all four of our weddings and this is the last one. It was a big celebration for all of us.”
Now that every member of the foursome is hitched, the whistle is blowing to signify that it’s time to get on the baby train. The band’s lead vocalist, Mike Eli, and his wife have already gotten things rolling in that department, as they are set to welcome their first child sometime this summer.
