Eli Young Band visits Stateline’s MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa

Eli Young Band takes the stage at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa on Thursday, May 25.

Over the past few years, the Eli Young Band has risen to prominence in the country scene — and they're bringing the hits to MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa on Thursday, May 25.

"After years of paying dues and gaining experience, the Eli Young Band is at the top of their game," states the band's online biography.

Following the 2011 hit "Crazy Girl," Eli Young Band released the album "10,000 Towns" at the start of 2013.

"This record was a lot more upbeat than our previous records," guitarist James Young said of "10,000 Towns." "We really wanted to record songs that are going to be fun to play live and fun for our fans watching the show. We were thinking about our live show and how these songs are going to translate on the set list. That was a priority in our minds too when we chose songs for this record."

The album, which features the hit "Dust," is named after the group's years spent traveling and performing across the country.

"At the end of the day we all party the same way no matter what the culture or the town," vocalist Mike Eli noted. "To us, '10,000 Towns' is a great way to sum up this record in that way as well as who we are. We love traveling around the country and seeing all that and being a band of road dogs."

Eli Young Band's new album, "Fingerprints," is due out this summer. Tickets for the gig range from $30-$45, plus tax and fees, and are available online.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show, located at 55 U.S. 50 in Stateline.
