Second generation rocker & Canadian Rockabilly Hall of Famer Vee has been called “The Prince Of Twang.” The son of Bobby Vee, he has been performing his unique style of rock-n-roll music for years on stages across the globe.
Having been on tour with the legends and architects of rock-n-roll, Vee has learned from, and shared credits and stages with, James Burton, Carl Perkins, Albert Lee, Little Richard, the Everly Brothers, Sir Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Dion, The Righteous Brothers, Buddy Holly’s Crickets, and Dick Clark and his ‘Caravan of Stars Rock ‘N’ Roll Show.’
Vee is known for combining elements of his vast repertoire and telling stories that bridge the generation gap from the roots of rock-n-roll to the new sounds of Americana music of today. As an entertainer with six studio records to his name, countless guest artist credits, and a history of extensive touring, Vee has captured the attention of audiences and respected industry professionals both nationally and internationally.
Claude Hall, radio-TV editor of Billboard Magazine writes, “If this guy had been around during the era of Elvis, he would have given Elvis a run for his money.”
Vee is currently touring to audiences worldwide with his “Rock-n-Roll Caravan Show,” featuring the Strings & Things violin section. The Caravan Show pays tribute to the golden era of rock n’ roll with a tip of the hat to his father Bobby Vee and music legend Buddy Holly.
