IT’S SAFE TO say that everyone is pretty excited about Rodeo Houston’s return — including the Eli Young Band, which just announced a surprise concert at The Hideout on Thursday.

The Grammy-nominated band last played the Rodeo’s big stage in 2014, just seven years after making its Hideout debut. The return to the honky-tonk tent is “a nostalgic moment for all of us,” said the band in a statement, noting that the venue has “supported so many incredible up-and-coming artists” over the years.

Comprised of Mike Eli, James Young, Jon Jones and Chris Thompson, Eli Young Band is currently touring to promote its sixth studio album, out later this year. Thursday’s event, presented by Jim Beam, features opening act Disko Cowboy at 8pm. Eli Young Band will take the stage at 10pm, when hits like “Crazy Girl,” “Love Ain’t,” “Drunk Last Night” and its latest single, “Love Talking,” will have rodeo-goers boot-scooting all night long.

Disko Cowboy opens for the Eli Young Band on Thursday.

Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.
