Second-generation rocker Robby Vee brings his three-piece band and pop, swing, rockabilly and bop to Crossings at 7:30 p.m. Saturday March 10.
Vee has released three solo albums, “Viva La Twang,” “Liquid Love” and “Bop.” The band will perform a range of original songs from past releases and the most recent recording, “Viva La Twang.”
“Viva” features tributes to music Vee recorded with his father, 1960s hit-maker Bobby Vee, to the Vee’s, a band consisting of two brothers and himself, and to Buddy Holly’s Crickets – as well as some good old fun favorites.
“We've been working hard to expand our reach to local theaters and bring our toe tappin’ show to rock ‘n’ roll fans throughout the Midwest. This is a tremendous opportunity to perform for the people who have supported the Vee name, whether it be my father, the Vee’s or myself for so many years,” Vee said.
The band includes King Creole on standup bass and Jeff Bjork on drums, both the original rhythm section for Minneapolis rockabilly favorites Jack Knife and the Sharps. Rounding out the band on saxophone will be Jimmy Greenwell, an original member of Lamont Cranston.
Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 day of show. To reserve tickets, stop in to Crossings in Zumbrota or call 507-732-7616.
