Eli Young Band
Yesterday Mike Eli, of the Eli Young Band, took to the field in Kansas City to perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the Chiefs-Broncos game. It didn't go so well, he flubbed the song.. Twice!!
Press Release - Nashville, Tennessee – The Q Morning Zoo recently launched their annual Gridiron Invasion – the prize: an acoustic performance from the Eli Young Band. Rabid EYB fans scurried to their computers to vote andin less than 24 hours a massive 180,000 responses had been tallied. The overwhelming turnout was felt across the nation when the server in Atlanta crashed the next day, leaving 86 radio stations, 15 TV stations, 4 newspapers in the Cox Media Group without email or Internet access. The Houston station was forced to shut down the promotion immediately to allow Cox to regain online service nationwide.
"I've always known that the Eli Young Band is a big deal here in Texas, but this is ridiculous! I've taken what happened as a sign that if I don't play EYB a lot, then something worse will happen," said Johnny Chiang, Cox Radio Houston Operations Manager.
