Rockford Community Days 2015 Music Entertainment includes:
Thom McKee – Friday – June 19th 5 – 7 pm
Filled with rich life experiences, passion, dedication, and limitless talent, writing great memorable songs comes naturally for Thom McKee.
McKee was born and raised in a small northwestern Ohio town called Delphos. It was the kind of town where everyone was family and there were plenty of girls and back country roads to go chase. Growing up in a small town had its perks. There were always plenty of life stories and crazy neighbors to write about.
Being on stage is a great way to find out what the fans truly like and react to the most. McKee says. “I want the listener to feel like my songs could have easily have been written about their own lives!” McKee has had a multitude of recent songs on internet and Tennessee radio. There is even a song still being requested in Afghanistan by our American soldiers! Currently two Ohio bands have requested mechanical licenses to record some of Thom’s work for projects and radio play. One of McKee’s latest songs climbed to #12 and was featured as the “Spot Light Song of the Week” on Nashville’s popular VRadio music streaming service
