Vee Da Bee migrated from Houston, TX in 2011 for Ithaca College. She’s been playing music for 15 years, performing for 12! She has been known as a ‘Rising Star’ in the Ithaca area, performing for Mickie Quinn’s Cosmic Joke Collective, Ithacafest, and the Downtown Alliance Concert Series at Bernie Milton. An entertainer first and foremost, if you don’t know her songs, you feel like you do, because her writing is filled with empathy and compassion. As for covers, you might hear Beyonce, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Johnny Cash in the same set.
When she’s not playing around town, you can hear her voice on Z955 as the host of “The Kickback with Tori Vee”, weekdays from 3-7pm.
We look forward to having her play at The Bakery on Meadow St. Happy Hour from 5pm-6pm with $2 off any pour.
