About the Killer Vees:
Known in the music business as the “rhythm section to the stars,” Jeff and Tommy Vee have been playing drums and doghouse bass respectively for over 30 years with a resume far too long to list. They have performed and toured with a virtual who’s who of the music business including Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Paul McCartney, Ronnie Wood, Brian Setzer and Chuck Berry, Bill Medley, Sam Moore, Peter Noone and of course their father Bobby Vee… just to name a few.
In 2008 Jeff & Tommy joined forces with their cousin Matt Vee and his talented wife Julie to form The Killer Vees. Matt, an accomplished performer in his own right also toured nationally and internationally with Bobby Vee and others from the ‘60s era as well as 13 years as guitarist and vocalist for Midwest favorite Johnny Holms. Matt is also a frequent guest performer with “The Fabulous Armadillos.”
Together they have produced regional touring shows such as, “I Am He Said a Celebration of Neil Diamond,” “Remembering Bobby Vee” and, “The Killer Vees - Classic Country.” As The Killer Vees, they perform a dynamic variety show which includes material from their past productions in addition to other great classic Rock ’n Roll and crowd pleasing Americana musical standards.
