Local Rock Band Receives Honor

A rock band from Tyler continues to gain recognition with a major honor in a Dallas magazine.  The group, formerly called Mos Eisley, now just "Eisley", has been named "The Best New Act" in the Dallas's Observers' Annual Music Award Issue.

The band members, who range in age from 14 to 21, include three sisters, their brother, and a friend.  And Eisley has been very busy; recently signing a major label deal, touring with the popular rock band coldplay, and receiving critical praise for their performance at the "South by Southwest" festival in Austin.

Their first CD for Warner Bros. is scheduled to be released on May 20th.
