Every show is painstakingly crafted and selected to offer the highest quality and culturally enriching entertainment possible to our community.
To all Viterbo arts patrons, benefactors, sponsors, volunteers, and artists, allow me to express my sincere gratitude for your support. Enjoy the show!

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 more than 30 years with a resume far too long to list.
They have performed, recorded, and/or toured with a virtual who’s who of the music business including Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Paul McCartney, Ronnie Wood, Brian Setzer, Chuck Berry, Bill Medley, Sam Moore, Peter Noone, and of course their father Bobby Vee just to name a few.
In 2008, Jeff and 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. He also spent 13 years as guitarist and vocalist for Midwest favorite Johnny Holms. Rounding out the group these days, and arguable the star of the show, is Bobby Vee's grandson, Bennett Vee, on guitar.
Together they have produced regional touring shows such as, I Am He Said-A Celebration of The Music of Neil Diamond, Remembering Bobby Vee, and The Killer Vees-Killer 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 and original material.
The Vees grew up on the road and in the business and they know how to rock an audience! In addition, they continue to tour nationally as the backing band for the critically acclaimed show The Original Stars of American Bandstand featuring Fabian, The Shirelles, Brian Hyland, Chris Montez, The Chiffons, and Merrillee Rush.
