Welcome to Julie Lee’s Web Site!

My name is Julie Lee & I head up Julie Lee & her White Rose Band. Based out of Fargo, ND, my White Rose Band plays a wide variety of venues throughout the country.

I grew up on a farmstead outside of Hillsboro, ND, the third oldest of nine kids. Music was a big part of our life from little on up. My parents played in a band and instilled their love of music into us kids as well. We all took band and choir and some of us got into stage band as well. The piano at our home got lots of use as that’s what my Mom played and all nine of us kids took lessons too. My dad played guitar and I loved when Mom & Dad would sing those old 40’s & 50’s songs together.

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 old time waltz and polka, country music, rhumba and 40’s & 50’s foxtrots & swing. We work jobs as a duo all the way up to a four piece group as needed.Our duo features myself on alto & tenor sax, clarinet, guitar and vocals with my husband Hugo on midi accordion paired with a rhythm unit. We add more sounds with our three or four piece group, depending on where we’re working and what flavor of music they want.

Our music has taken us to all corners of this great country of ours including dances from North Dakota to Texas to Arizona. 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 Dance Party held at the Orleans Casino & Hotel. Our website for that is www.southwestdanceparty.com. Check it out and make plans to join us in February by calling me at 701-367-9696.

I currently have 18 CD’s for sale that go back 20 years, recorded from 1998 to 2017. Check out the “Music”link to view more details on our recordings and also print out an order form.

I’ve met so many wonderful people throughout the years of playing music all over our country. The most satisfying thing to me is seeing people smiling and having a good time, just knowing I can help make their day a little brighter. I’ve always said “I have one of the best jobs I could ever ask for.” Keep dancing everyone! Thanks for your continued support & friendships.
