“I Am, He Said” A Celebration of the Music of Neil Diamond Starring Matt Vee is coming to the Fargo Theatre on Friday, February 21, 2020.
Matt Vee is the nephew of 60’s pop star and Fargo native Bobby Vee. With songs like “Cracklin’ Rosie”, “Song Sung Blue”, “America”, “Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show” and “Sweet Caroline”, Diamond has sold over 130 million records worldwide and produced musical hits spanning five decades.
“We are saying what he said,” Matt Vee, said, referring to the one and only Diamond.
Matt Vee, along with cousins Tommy Vee and Jeff Vee, both founders of The Killer Vees and sons of the legendary Bobby Vee, celebrate the music from a timeless catalog. As a Brill Building songwriter in the mid-60s, Diamond penned songs recorded by everyone from Elvis Presley to Deep Purple and of course, The Monkee’s classic “I’m a Believer.”
“This is not a tribute show,” Tommy Vee said. “This is a celebration of an amazing musical icon, one we all love and respect. We have recruited an incredible group of singers and players and have gone back to the original records. It is all about the vocals and Matt nails it. It’s a rockin’ show!”
Joining The Killer Vees’ band are Tommy Vee’s son, Bennett Vee on guitar, Matt Vee’s wife Julie Velline on vocals, veteran Minnesota musicians Mark Levandowski, Dennis Kennedy and Dr. Frank Plachecki as well as a very special surprise for the finale.
