Bobby Vee took over for Buddy Holly on the Winter Dance Party Tour after the fatal plane crash in 1959.
Matt Vee performed 13 years with regional rock band Johnny Holm, then reunited with his uncle Bobby, and Bobby’s sons, Jeff and Tom, on tour from 2002-04. He has since performed with his cousins as The Vees.
Now, the Vee family – along with Matt’s wife Julie – pays homage to Diamond, who has sold more than 100 million records with songs such as “Cracklin’ Rosie,” “Sweet Caroline,” and “I Am I Said.”
