Hi, my name is Julie Lee and I am the founder of my "White Rose Band". I am the lead vocalist for the band and also play alto and tenor sax, clarinet and rhythm guitar for the band. I grew up on a farmstead between Hillsboro ND, and Halstad MN, the third oldest in a family of nine children. My parents instilled the love of music in us and today I can proudly say I’m doing what I love for my life’s work. Starting with piano lesson, playing clarinet in concert band in school, then alto sax in stage band, my musical life started at a very young age.

Based out of Fargo ND, my White Rose Band plays a wide variety of venues throughout the country. In the summertime, we travel throughout the Midwest working at many different places. Our music features many different styles of music, which can vary from country music to 40’s & 50’s to old time waltz & polka music. We work jobs as a duo all the way up to a five piece group as needed.
Our music has taken us to all corners of this great country of ours, playing on cruise ships in Alaska and the Caribbean to dances from North Dakota to Texas. Some of the venues we work at include festivals, dinner shows, fairs, private parties, pool parties, club dances, polka masses, Christmas parties and shows, casinos, cruise ships and church festivals.
From November through April you will find us in Mesa, Arizona where we entertain for the snowbirds that flock to Arizona to get some sunshine all winter long. We love calling Mesa our second home. We also travel up to Las Vegas each February to host the Southwest Polka Party held at the Orleans Casino & Hotel.
