ST. JOSEPH - The great Bobby Vee will be on stage again this year at St. Joseph's Joetown Rocks celebration.  A larger than usual crowd is expected to be at the event this year, watching Vee perform one more time before he goes into "Semi retirement".

Vee was born Robert Velline in Fargo in 1943.  Vee famously got his start because of the tragic plan crash that killed Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Richie Valens in 1959.  And the as they say is history.

Vee and his family will take the stage tonight at about 8:45 p.m.

Who can forget this 1960's classic, "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes"...
