Eli Young Band, another band that boasts University of North Texas alumni in its founding lineup, is headed back to Denton on Friday for homecoming. 

The Grammy-nominated country band got its start in Denton, when alumni Mike Eli (class of 2004), James young (class of '02) and Jon Jones (class of '04) met at UNT and started making music together.

Band members Eli and Jones will be on campus 2:30 p.m. this Friday at the Lyceum at the UNT Student Union for a screening of the mini-documentary "This is Eli young Band."

The musicians will then sit on a panel with their manager George Couri, fellow UNT alumnus and Spotify Global Head of Communications Dustee Jenkins and CMA Foundation Board Member Eric Jimenez for a Q&A.

At 8 p.m. on Friday, the band will perform in concert at the Super Pit. Tickets cost $30, and VIP floor seating is sold out.
